My son is on his way to Venezuela today. He is bringing home a "friend". Hmmm??? Should be an interesting visit. We are all a little sad, knowing this is his last trip to visit us here in Venezuela where he was born and raised. It will, I am sure, be an emotional time for us all.
The container came on Wednesday. The house is empty looking,with nothing to decorate the walls and only the necessary furniture to get by with. In the kitchen, I keep looking for my favorite spoons and pans, but they are gone already. It is like we are camping here in the house for the next month.
It is real now. We are leaving this land we have made our home for 20 years. I try not to think about it. I try to think of the future, but it is hard to do.
For now, we will enjoy this time with Josh. Get to know his friend. And keep on!!!
So, as I said, we have mixed emotions.
A month ago I asked for prayer concerning some things I could not share a lot of details about.
1) The friends in danger are ok. Seems they have been able to get out of the hot spot.
2)The permit we were trying to get so that Clint could go into the village to do maintenance on the tractor and generator, and hopefully get out some more of our belongings that we had to leave, did not come through. The General would never receive the letter.
3) Josh being a Venezuelan citizen, needs his Venezuelan passport. We have been trying to get it renewed as his expires in a month. It shows up as "delivered" , but not to us. So either, they did not renew it, or it was delivered to someone else and who knows what they are doing with it.
4) The other request involves some legal issues we have in the courts here. Still waiting on that as well.
So, we still need prayers!!
