Boanire House and Permits Progress!
We have some very encouraging news from Bonaire. Construction has begun on our house renovation and most of the residency permits have been issued.
The construction permits were issued recently for the renovation of our house on Bonaire. Construction has already begun. A handicap accessible bedroom suite is being put in where the old kitchen is, and a new kitchen/dining room area is being added.
The residency permits for Mari and the children have been issued. Mine is still pending along with my work permit. We are still waiting as well my birth certificate as well from South Africa which will needed when I get my residency permit. We are expected to appear within six weeks to claim our residency permits. There is a LOT to accomplish in order for that to happen.
One big factor is Joshua's recovery. He may not be allowed to travel that soon. We will request a letter from his doctor asking that an extension be granted until he is able to travel.
Another huge item is raising the outgoing support. We are still well short of the amount needed in order to move to Bonaire. We need one-time gifts urgently to meet this need.
We will need a few weeks to pack and ship our household. We'll be camping for several weeks here and in Bonaire while I household goods are in transit. We will also need a temporary vehicle suitable fr Joshua during the transition.
So, a lot is happening quickly. We're very excited and hope the time to move is near. Please be praying with us for the Lord's provision, strength, and grace as we move into the final pre-move stages.
