Last Friday, Claudia and I went to the Department of Immigration and received our long-awaited residency permits! Praise the Lord! I am now a legal resident in the country of Moldova and can stay here and travel in and out freely for the next year before I have to have my permit renewed. Thank you so much for all your prayers.

At the same time, though, the joy was somewhat muted by the sobering reality that all our team-mates with American passports must leave the country for 3 months before they will be able to continue with the application process. So currently, our 7 americans are preparing for a 3-month mission outreach in Moldovan speaking villages in Ukraine, near the border of Moldova. then they will be able to return and apply for the permit. There are a lot of gaps in ministry to be filled in their absence so you can imagine how our team is scrambling to care for all the responsibilities our American friends have had. Please pray for them and for all of us in these challenging months.
