We Have our Provisional Visas!
Thank you for all your prayer.

After a lot of diligence, navigating various government agencies in several states (each of our children were born in a different state) and a foreign government appointment where Betsy and I met with the Costa Rican Consulate in Chicago last week we had all the paperwork and were granted provisional student visas. We will finish the process when we arrive in Coasta Rica.

Just 6 Days Until We Leave
It's amazing to think that in just six days (December 14), Lord willing, we will be in Costa Rica beginning our first term on the field with Reaching and Teaching. The importance of language acquisition cannot be overestimated. As missionaries our entire ministry is communicating the most important truth people will ever hear and therefore we are very thankful for our partnership team as you walk alongside us and make it possible for us to get the critical ministry tool of learning Spanish and Latin American culture.
Family Update
Goodbyes are hard but it has been sweet to spend quality time with family, our church and close friends.
