This morning we were able to submit our visa paperwork in full. There was a bit of a twist as Amber went to submit the documents for both of us only to be told that we both had to be present. So an unexpected motorcycle ride and a trip on the SkyTrain had Matthew downtown Vancouver just in time for him to simply hand them the forms.
The Consular seemed positive that he would grant our visas, but for about 2 months less time than we were asking for. So it is out of our hands now and we're asking you to pray with us that we'll have our visas in our possession 2 weeks from now.
