I finally sent the darn visa application away today. As my pastor, Rob, put it, it's not in my hands anymore, or the hands of the embassy even...it's truly in God's hands (as frightening as that is). Although, whatever happens, I know He knows what's goin' on out there in the world and that He has it all under control. (I have to repeat this to myself 50 times a day)!
Please continue to pray that the visa would go through and they'd grant me entry to SA. I'm really a good person!
