Success at the Embassy

Steve was able to file the I600 today. He also has Lilly's passport in hand!!!! He met a lady from Utah at the embassy who said her I600 was approved in 1 day....but then she had a letter from Senator Hatch and Lois said she has been waiting since October for it, so I'm not sure of the full story.

Now I'll be checking my email several times a day anxiously awaiting our approval! Once we have it, I'll be off to Ghana!!!

Steve has really enjoyed the spirit he feels at Luckyhill. He said when he arrived back to the school one night, the children were singing hymns. It's something else to hear them sing, I guess. He has also been attending devotional at 5:00 each morning. It's a good thing it's dark in the room, since he is sitting in the corner with misty eyes.

I talked with several of the children on the phone today...Dorothy, Sandra, Junior, and Patience. They had never spoken on the phone before, so they liked saying "hello" and hearing my response. Steve said he has already talked the older boys into playing pranks on me during my visit. I'm just afraid the pranks may include spiders, frogs, mice and lizards since I hear there are plenty of them around!!! Just what the kids need to learn from Steve.....how to be a tease : )

Hey! I have some shoes for you. I will try to call you this weekend. They aren't soccer shoes. Is that okay? I figured they could use tennis shoes and sandals also.

Oh happy day! Kingsley's quote to sum up the day "God is good, he is always always good." Yes he is!

Any shoes are great! Thanks. I will be in SL this weekend. If you could get them to Steve's mom's house, I could pick them up there. THANKS!!!

Narda,
I hope that you remember me. I lived in your ward when Overlake was just built. I somehow came upon your blog through someone else's. You and Steve are such neat people and I wanted to say hi. We have 3 girls as well. Congratulations on your newest little one, she is so sweet!
