It’s been a busy few months since we launched thesubcontinentalsanfords.com! We’ve found new homes for all of our pets; we’ve been meeting with and connecting with ministry partners; we’re continuing to meet with our missions coaches; and the girls have been working so hard to finish well at school (Bret and I are both working hard to finish well at our jobs, too!). As the school year winds down we’re asking the question: Okay, Lord; when?! Right now, the answer is, “Not yet.”
As I began the visa application process, I became aware of documentation that must accompany my application for an employment visa. SO. . .we’re getting those documents together, and I should be able to send off for my visa on June 10th. Mark your calendars, friends – JUNE 10th. Once I receive my visa, we can apply for Bret’s and the girls’ “dependent” visas. In the meantime we’re wrapping up our stay in the AirBnB we’ve been renting this year (we’ll be moving in with family until our departure); we’re continuing to pair down our clothing and other items to fit in a small storage unit; Cam has some dental work that will be completed soon (but “not yet”) and Hayden has a thyroid issue we’re treating here before transferring her care to a specialist in New Delhi; and we’re praying. We’re doing lots of praying. We know that you are praying with us, and we’re so grateful!
Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” The lamps in those days weren’t big and didn’t put off a lot of light, but the light was enough to see just ahead of you – to keep you from falling off the edge of the mountain. That’s where we are right now: wait for the “word” to move forward as the lamp lights our path. Please continue to join us on this journey. We are believing for BIG things and are so excited you are joining us along the way.
