It's been a bit of a stressful week for me here in Caracas....It's that time of year again, when I make the trek to the immigration office to renew my visa (which usually turns into 4 or 5 treks). My last trip to the office yesterday included an officer who had no interest in answering any of my questions, who yelled at me (because he didn't understand what I was asking), and who walked away from me while I was still asking questions. I followed him out as he left the office, and he started yelling at another lady who had obviously been waiting to talk to him. I know that the Angers have also had some run-ins with him while they have been waiting for their ID cards but thankfully God gave me an extra helping of grace as I walked back to my car. It's been a rollercoaster, as we are still learning how things work here when it comes to our documents as foreigners but I'm thankful that it looks like things will work out so that I can arrive in Canada in August. Would you please pray for these specific things:
-I will go to the Canadian Embassy tomorrow (Friday) to renew my passport. I tried doing it today but I didn't quite arrive in time. Oops! Story of my life!
-July 15 I will submit my paperwork for my Venezuelan visa renewal
-Whenever the visa is completed, I will submit my application for renewal of my Venezuelan ID card. Will the paperwork and wallet size photos ever end???
-In the meantime I will attempt to book a flight back to Canada. Flights out of Caracas are a little scarce these days, but I should be able to get a flight through Panama. Dunkin' Donuts time!!!
Please pray all these things fall into place, along with the usual craziness of packing my house up and putting things into storage. I will keep y'all posted!
