5 More Days to Go!

Ok friends and family, we are counting down the days....

This Monday morning, we leave for China (via DC).  Our long flight will actually be on Tuesday, arriving in Beijing on Wednesday 12/7.  (Their time)

We are amazed each day at how the Lord is providing for the financial needs of this trip.  We are inching closer and closer to our goal. Thank you to each one who has given through the $50 "Thirty-One" give away.  There is still time. Entries will be accepted through midnight on Saturday.  The drawing will be held Sunday, 12/4 in the evening.

Today we made some headway. Our I800 approval arrived at the NVC (National Visa Center) and we received an email from them that they are processing it immediately.  The cable should be sent to the embassy by tonight or first thing in the morning.

The DS230 has already been delivered, so as soon as they get the cable, we are ready to issue the Article 5 immediately.  Getting that travel approval is going to be tight, but there is a slight glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel now.

As for our journey, in order to secure the best available flights (cost-wise) we had to leave a few days early, so we will be in Beijing first. Angela, from Ladybugs n Love, is going to be our guide while we are there.  I have heard so many wonderful things about her that I can't wait to meet her in person.

In about a week or so, we might have photos of Colin and me here on the Great Wall of China!  I am very excited about that.  Stay tuned!  More to come!

Can't wait to follow along, Angie! (although I'd rather it be in a plane than on the internet, lol!)
