We received word on Tuesday that things were progressing well in filing the necessary paperwork. The application for a passport has been submitted. The passport looks to be the final thing we need before we are able to travel back.
We were hoping and praying we would receive news today that all was in place and we could plan our trip for early next week.
Didn't happen. Nothing will happen in Uganda over the weekend and we will hear nothing from Eugene, Oregon till Tuesday. As we near a full month since being back, we find ourselves longing to get back. Patience is thin. Trite sayings (it will all work out in the end) and Christian cliches (It's all in His timing) are more annoying than helpful (just a little brutal honesty there).
We wait. We struggle. We trust.
Pray for our son. Pray he is well loved and healthy.
Pray for patience.
Pray for a passport.
