A few weeks ago I shared how paperwork seems to dominate a missionaries life. At least paperwork related to the government in which they live. Well this week story gives you a sneak peek into the non glamarous side of what we do to work where we work.
The typo had been fixed, we finally could get our Work Visa stamped in our passport and move to the Village. Not so fast. Monday afternoon I headed of with all the correct paperwork downtown to Immigration to simply turn in our passports for stamping. After waiting an hour in line, I was turned away by 2 ladies at the counter who mis-understood me. I was also told that I had to come in the morning time before lunch as they could only process my request then. So Tuesday Morning me and my “boss” here in Namibia headed out to be amazed to see the line outside the building half a city block long. We waited for over an hour to realize we weren’t getting inside before lunch time. So this morning we woke with the Sun and heading down early to hopefully be at the front of the que. Nope we were a little closer but still had to wait 3 hours until we were bumped forward ahead of the students trying to get study Visa’s. In the end Anastasia behind the counter helped us and our passports are being stamped. 3 days, 6 hours of standing in line and success. Tomorrow we move to the village were the “Que” line is very very short. My kinda place. Jeremy

Dear Ones, Your story is why I loved living in Rush! May God give you patience! I’d give you mine, but I haven’t had any for years! Blessings!
Your servant in Christ, Jack

I I read your letter of Que to the church at Walnut Grove and our tech man showed the picture of Jeremy and Anastasia on the road to the village. I shared the picture of her with a bottle. Also, share tib tibs from Facebook. (termites eating mulch, ant mounds, how important the good truck is, and ,etc) I have forgotten how close is the nearest city to shop in and the closest doctors. How do you wring your wash out? Do pray Jeremy is on the mend now. I am fighting vertigo and it can knock me out for days…Had a great last month ( the best I had felt in 2 years) and them on Monday for some reason it returned. The doctors had done all at this time they can do… praying strength and no dizziness will return. Love you all Gladys

So good to hear from you and thank you for sharing with the church and the prayers. We are 4 hrs from the nearest city with good supplies. Claudia hand rinses the wash.
