The Schrock family has completed deputation, their visa paperwork, and much of their packing. Now they are only waiting to hear back from the Brazilian consulate in the States on the approval of their visas. It has been 12 weeks since they applied!
Please pray that they will be approved very soon as they had actually hoped they would be here by now and settled in. We are as ready as can be on this side. They have a pretty little rented house waiting for them. The approval of the visas could take up to six months according to the consulate, but we are all holding on to hope that it will take less. We received ours after three months of our initial application. Of course, we all know that God's timing is perfect...but we are all excited about having our friends and coworkers here!
