IT CAME! IT CAME!

OH MY GOSH!  

TWO WEEKS AGO, TWO WEEKS AGO FROM TODAY WE GOT OUR FINGERPRINTS DONE! TODAY WE RECEIVED OUR APPROVAL, I-171H. TODAY! TODAY!  

I AM SO EXCITED THAT I CAN HARDLY STAND IT (HENCE THE ALL CAPS!). I WILL BE HEADING BACK DOWN TO THE CITY NEXT WEEK TO GET THE REST OF OUR DOSSIER COMPLETE (WHICH IS JUST 2 FORMS).  THEN IT WILL BE OFF TO AWAA THEN RWANDA! I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE IT (THEY SAY 6-12 WEEKS FOR THE APPROVAL, OUR WAIT WAS 2 WEEKS). GOD IS GOOD!

That is great news! Maybe I will get to meet you and your family in person sooner than you thought!

Yeah! We are so excited for you that it came so fast. That dossier will be on its way very soon! Alas, we still wait for a fingerprint appointment. God is good...all the time.

Congrats!

Congrats Smith Family!! We got our fingerprints done Feb 7th...so We'll keep our fingers crossed too!! If you wouldn't mind, could I email you sometime with a few questions on your dossier- we're not using an agency and I wanted to check a few things out. Praise God and Congrats!

How awesome. You guys are rapidly catching up to us in our process :) Maybe we'll end up being in Rwanda at the same time. We are excpecting to hear from the embassy this week. We are praying for good news. BTW... Buster and I lead a small group and we decided to do Crazy Love. Good stuff so far!!! Congrats on your progress.
