"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." (James 5:16b)
Dear Praying Friends,
It is our joy to share with you the news we received today: the Chilean consulate has granted our request of one-year permanent residency visas for our entire family!
To our knowledge, this is even without having yet received our FBI background checks. In their initial communication with us today, the consulate had scheduled us for August 28; however, they were willing to change our appointment to August 15 in order for us to travel to Chile as planned on August 21! Praise the Lord!
We will take the whole family in person to have our passports stamped on that day. Just prior to our appointment at the consulate, Pedro will be traveling to and from Michigan to oversee the packing of our household items on August 13. Please pray for those final details as well.
Most importantly, please PRAISE the Lord with us today for His goodness in answered prayer ... And thank you for your part in bringing this need to His throne of grace!
Because of Christ,
Pedro & Stephanie Garcia
