What a day indeed! The day started with our dear translator Natasha going to the registration office at 7:00 a.m. to be the first in line when the doors opened at 9:00 a.m. She called me a cab and I met her in the line. From there on--birth certificate registration, new birth certificate at different building, tax id number, notaries, back to tax id office, and then passport application. Let me just say that God moved mountains today! Hallelujah!
What can take up to a week got done in 15 minutes and what can take three days took a few hours. Even the translator and facilitator were surprised and pleased with how the day went! I was able to point everything back to God and that His people were praying! This day was full of miraculous events that can only be credited to our all-powerful, gracious God!
Tomorrow morning will be exciting because we have to bring Bella to the passport office where they will scan her face to complete her passport. Because Bella has never been off the orphanage grounds, not to mention never riding in a car, it should prove to be interesting to say the least.
All these completed details mean -- WE CAN GET OUR GIRL ON TUESDAY AND FLY HOME AS SCHEDULED ON THURSDAY! Praise God from whom all blessings flow....
Love in Him, Paula
