Do to the nature of visa processing in Pakistan, our friends had to return home for a time in order to apply for longer term visas to remain in the country. It doesn’t really make sense, but that’s the way it is. While they are stateside, they are spending some time with family and attending some training seminars to better equip them once they return to the country. They are happy to be able to do these things, but their hearts remain in Pakistan. Please continue to pray for these things:
- Pray that they would soon get visas that will allow them to remain in Pakistan long-term
- Pray that the time with family and the time training would be refreshing and would enable them to serve better when they return.
- Pray that God would encourage them and grant them patience and perseverance as they deal with the frustration of this process.
