Pumpkin Pie Never Tasted So Good!

Have miracles ceased? Absolutely not! I am living proof that the Lord still performs many miracles in the lives of His children. I am still reeling from the events of the day, but am very, very happy to report that the Embassy allowed me to come in for my interview today and I now have in my possession Joshua’s passport complete with visa! We will be coming home as planned on Sunday!!!

After speaking with Richard and Victoria yesterday and informing them that I was unable to meet with the consular officer for the exit interview, they got to work contacting congressmen and senators in hopes that we could convince the Embassy to allow me to come in today for the interview. The Embassy received several e-mails this morning, including one from me, asking them to please reconsider allowing me to come in today. At 11:45 this morning I got the call from our coordinator telling me that the Embassy was requesting that I come in at 2:00. I was so excited and overwhelmed by this change of fortune that I was literally shaking from head to toe!

Heavenly Father has truly watched over us and guided this process from start to finish. There have been some incredibly intense moments throughout this journey, but each time things have turned in our favor. I do not believe that is coincidence. I cannot even begin to express in words how grateful I am for my Heavenly Father’s watchful care and for the bountiful blessings He has bestowed upon us. This is just a testament to me that, if you allow Heavenly Father to lead you, He will truly take you amazing places!

What a total roller coaster. I've been anxious all week for you and really appreciate your postings. Had not idea that for aboaut 24 hours it looked like you'd have to stay another week. But so many prayers were focused on your well being. Can't wait to see y'all. I hope that I can help with some tending while you are Ukraine.
Much love, Cynthia
