We (finally!) got our 5 year Honduran residency visas as religious workers. These are our temporary Honduran ID cards until the permanent ones come in 3 months. This has been a 10 month process but we know God’s timing is always perfect. Thankfully we never had to leave the country to make a “visa run” but we had to go to immigration every month, pay for monthly visa extensions (which are not cheap) and then go back to immigration 3 days later to pick up our stamped passports each month. It takes about an hour and a half (one way) for us to get to the immigration office so this was time consuming and expensive. So we give God all the praise & the glory for having this 5 year visa as it is not easy to get a 5 year visa for religious purposes.
The immigration office is not a super fun place to hang out but yesterday while we were doing our final residency papers, we met the sweetest couple who were in there also. Jordan & Desiree are sailing around the world and are currently here in Roatan. They were so much fun to talk with and get to hear about their life and experiences. They patiently answered all the kids questions and even were encouraging to them to follow their dreams and pursue their goals. We had a great time talking with them and getting to know one another. You can learn more about their adventures on their Facebook page Project Atticus and watch their videos on their YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/ProjectAtticus
We are praying for you Jordan & Desiree and look forward to following your adventures as you sail the world!
