We waited from 10:30 – 1:45, after a brief run by #5 to pick up the original of the immunization records because the copy was not clear enough. At 1:45, Alyona was told that the chief official was at a meeting until 3:00, so in 20 minutes, we’ll go back and see. Pray that Alyona will have discernment about when to “push” and when to back off. There’s an art to being both persistent and polite. We’ve seen Alyona demonstrate that she is quite skillful in this balance. Pray for her continued wisdom and gentleness. We have heard that the passport is in; we just have to have this paper signed and “in hand” to pick up the passport. I’ll let you know as soon as I can! THANK YOU for your prayers! Keep them up!
