For those who have been keeping track you know that we have been through a lot to get our kids' Recognition of Philippine citizenship, Philippine passports, and we are currently waiting for the US passports to be delivered end of this month. We also just scheduled Haydee's interview with the US Embassy for her US visa. If you know the cost of all of these things so far we have spent a total of $1350. There has been some people who have been giving extra and because of this we have been able to get this far and we are very grateful. We are targeting late October to fly out and fly back to the Philippines in March. We are planning to visit many States after spending the Holidays in Colorado.
But the truth is we are very far off our need for the plane tickets. We are looking at different options like flying first to the west coast and then find a way to get to Colorado. But honestly we are nowhere near where we need to be. To fly all the way to Colorado we are looking at $7000 (prices keep on changing). But if we can get a little over $5000 we can buy tickets to California right away.
Can you please pray and ask God if you can give extra for this trip? Even a small gift can be a big help. But if God ask you to give a bigger gift it will go a long way. To give please CLICK HERE for ways to give.
Even if you are not able to give please keep this trip in your prayers. We are way overdue for a furlough (it has been 5 years) and we know this is the right time. Pray that unseen doors will open to make this trip happen.
