Today we received word that our visas for Portugal were approved. It was not guaranteed that thwe would; we know of some people that had their applications turned down. This is probably because they were applying for missionary visas.
It is interesting that many so-called "Christian" or "Catholic" European nations are actually anti-Christian in many of their practices. I am sure it will be a challenge to evangelize there!
Well, a very big answer to prayer, since we have already given notice of leaving to Dan's work and our apartment. We just really felt that God was going to grant us these visas -- and He did!
Thank you all for praying; now the hard part -- saying "Goodbye" to a land and people that we love.
