Well, after a whole lot of stress and headache, our visas finally made it to our home today. Our original departure was last Wednesday, Oct.3rd but due to visa issues we had to delay that until this Tuesday the 9th. It is truly amazing to see God’s hand in the many frustrating circumstances of life and we already see how He has worked in this change of plans. Instead of the 90 day visa we requested, we ended up with 3 year multiple entry visas which will be a great blessing in future trips to Russia. Thank you for all who prayed for us in this time!
