Urgent Prayer Request
We’re coming to you today with an urgent prayer need. Our work in this part of the world can be volatile and having proper visas to allow our personnel to stay in country is an on-going challenge and prayer need. The government here recently changed the guidelines for citizens from a certain South American country. Where they could previously remain in country on a tourist visa, that is no longer the case. A family on our leadership team is from this country. There are many uncertainties ahead. The government here has already informed that country’s embassy that border patrol at all borders will refuse entry to that country’s citizens if they don’t have residency visas. The wife and children of this family are currently in Spain. They will be attempting to come back into the country as soon as possible. Additionally, there is another family from this same country who were planning to move here in the next few weeks. We need wisdom as we navigate these changes. We don’t want to respond in fear, but do need to be wise and prepare for all possibilities, doing all we can.
- For the wife and kids to be allowed entry back into the country and for a smooth border crossing.
- For the husband as he is working on the necessary paperwork to get longterm residency and for favor through the process.
- For another family from this same country who were planning to move here at the end of this month.
- For divine wisdom and peace for all involved. These kinds of changes can also bring anxiety and other challenges.
