As we finish this year and look forward to the New Year and all it's possibilities, we thought we would give you an update on how we ended and will begin this new year.
After Audrey was born on November 24, we praised God for such a healthy and easy baby. We had told the hospital we need her paperwork to be expedited as fast as possible as we are trying to get all our paperwork underway to be back in Indonesia by the end of January. Well, two weeks later I got a call from the county saying they see no record of Audrey's birth and would not be able to issue her birth certificate. That same day her Social Security Number arrived with the incorrect name. We have been frantically going through the process of getting her name corrected which has been a challenge with the holiday season and everything shutting down. We have gotten her name corrected, and have applied for a passport. We are now waiting for the passport before we can pursue an Indonesian visa for Audrey. This has delayed our wanted progress by about 3 weeks and we are praying that our passport will come faster then hoped. We also pray that we can have good favor with the Indonesian government and a speedy process of the visa. Please pray with us that all this paperwork will go miraculously fast and that we can get back to the field as expected!
We are bringing in this new year here in Montana where we are enjoying lots of snow, family and friends. We will head back to the Seattle area around the 8th and hope our passport will be waiting for us when we return. Matt will continue his studies to become a Certified Flight Instructor and we hope he will have it all completed before we leave. We will keep you all posted on the progress of paperwork and studies.
From our family to yours,
We sincerely want to wish you a Happy New Year! We hope this year is filled with God's love and that you all make a ton of great memories!
Love, The Meeuwse's
