Greetings! As many of you know, Tim, Promise, and I are set to leave the Philippines June 15 for a much needed furlough. Most of our families and friends have not met Promise and there is a growing list of things we need to tie up in the West that have been put off until we were able to get furlough. All this to say, Tim has been diligent in preparing and submitting all the requests of Canadian immigration in order to allow Promise to leave this country and enter Canada. Here's where it gets tricky. The woman that Tim was receiving all his information from at the embassy is now changing her story basically saying that nothing will be available for Promise until at least July.
Needless to say, we are rather upset,as we based our travel times on her information and Tim even spent what little money we have on traveling to Manila to the embassy to get the ball rolling sooner. We have tried the American embassy (my side) and they were even worse on accommodating our strange, abnormal situation.
So, please pray that the paperwork gets finished and stamped with speed, that we receive a temporary passport sooner than expected and before our June departure date, and that this hiccup will not cost us anymore money!
Thank you for your prayers and we will keep you posted. This is not the first time immigration has been difficult to work with and we know that God is bigger than it all.
