I left the blog hanging for a bit longer than I intended.  I left off mentioning a trip to the border with a teammate and another missionary who needed to visit the border in order to nationalize their vehicles.  I went along just for added security of a third person as well as a capable driver who is familiar with the route and the procedures.

Things really didn’t go as planned.  What we thought would be a quick 4 day trip turned out to be a 10 day trip!  It was certainly a challenge to have to extend our stay in order to wait for paperwork to be processed at a much slower rate than normal, but thankfully, we had a ministry center to stay in (Stepping Stone) and our families back home managed without us.

We finally arrived home a week ago Thursday and I’ve been catching up on a lot of missed days and also trying to figure out our own vehicle situation as the plates were held up locally for a review process of our documents.  At this point our van is parked.  We can get temporary permission to drive but we are unable to get liability insurance on the van.  We wouldn’t drive it under those circumstances.  We might have plates by around February 24th, but the officials here won’t promise a date.  It’s a process we hope will end quickly and without undue hassles.  We’re confident that the papers are in order and we certainly paid enough for that to be the case.  Hopefully, we’ll not see any unusual response or problem.  Pray with us over this.  Thank-you!
