Prayer for Miss B's Visa

From Sweet Pea:

Mamma called tonight (Thursday morning in Ethiopia) to ask for prayer for Miss B’s visa. It has not yet been completed. To leave Ethiopia on Saturday, they need to have the visa in hand on Friday, which means it must be completed Thursday. Please pray for swift work on the visa, help from people who can expedite paperwork, and for all the details to come together so my parents and sister can take their scheduled flight on Saturday from Addis Ababa (a rescheduled flight would be difficult to obtain as flights fill months in advance). Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Tomorrow, I hope to post new stories from their travels, and about visiting with Dimples’ and Miss B’s families. It has been an incredible experience!

UPDATE: As of Thursday morning (night in Ethiopia), the visa has not been completed. A government official has been on vacation, and the substitute did not take care of Honeybee’s visa. Another family is also waiting for a visa for their child. Mamma and the other child’s mother will go to the American Embassy on Friday morning (Thursday night in the US) and wait for visas. Please keep praying that the visas would be granted swiftly so my parents can leave Ethiopia on Saturday. Thank you! — Sweet Pea
