Interesting Updates ...

An urgent prayer request:

We were supposed to receive our Guinea visas by now, but it seems that the Guinea offices are having second thoughts about giving them to us (!) ... they called yesterday to let us know (!) ... how nice of them to give us so much time to work with! So we'll find out tomorrow (Friday) if we have them or not. We also need our passports returned to us by their offices by Monday (the day we're supposed to leave!) in order to even get to France (the country we're flying through). So now everything is a race against the clock ... (how exciting!) =p

Our flight is at 6PM on Monday, as long as we get our passports mailed back (FedEx) by the morning or afternoon, we can do some debating in France for the Guinea visas ... otherwise there may be a new country God wants our team to go to this year that we didn't know about prior! Again ... how exciting(!?) =) So please pray for God to open the right doors and for our team to be ready to go anywhere He desires. God's been making this year's missions prep so interesting so far ... =)

On a lighter note:

My buddy from San Francisco, Sam Baik, and his brother Ben arrived yesterday morning and will be vacationing in Australia for about 2 weeks.

We went to Morocco and Guinea together earlier this year ... it's good to see him again. We mainly hung out in the city yesterday after the usual visits to the Thai place and Koorong next to my home.

And in order to make me very happy, he gave me the new U2 concert DVD ... hot off the US press =) Muchos gracias for that Sam! How did you know??? =)

And oh yeah ... one more thing ...

I got U2 tickets baby!!!!!!!!!! My unused "special code" from the previous concert tour in the USA opened up the opportunity to buy "pre-sale" tickets for their March 2006 concert in Sydney.

God is good. Tickets go on sale to the public Monday (the day we leave!) ... so that's one less thing for me to worry about on Monday. Thank you God!!!!

But please do pray for our visa situation with Guinea ... and that our team would trust in Him, knowing that He works out all things for the good of those who love Him ... and have been called according to His purpose. I'll let you know what we find out tomorrow. Until then, see you in His presence as we pray ...

Finally Watching ...
