Quick prayer request

I started the online application process for my visa several weeks ago. A visa to Nigeria costs $120, and last year I was able to pay via credit card. However, this year I tried several times and the transaction never went through. The alternative was to get a money order from the post office and send it to an office in Connecticut. So I did, and saw that it was delivered on June 4. But so far I still have not received the acknowledgment that the payment has been received. I sent an e-mail last Wednesday to the contact address they gave, and have not heard back from that either.
Please pray that my payment is accepted and credited quickly, and that I not be anxious about having to pay $120 again. I still am so eager to return to my friends and that inspirational hope I found last July in Nigeria. I can hardly wait to see all the Lord will do there!

Pages flying from processors to printers to planes!

Oops, so sorry to have dropped the blog for so long! I warned you I'd be busy!
Quick update on my progress:

  • Orientation Guide done. Printing starts today!
    • The Orientation Guide gives a great overview of TEN3's history, goals and calling. If you'd be interested in reading it, let me know!
  • Principals Guide done, ready to be printed!
  • Integrity Advance handout done. Will probably be printed in California.
  • Writers Guide almost done. There's ALWAYS something to tweak with this one, so I'll probably wait until the deadline to stop working on it and call it ready.
  • Material Development Guide much the same as the writers guide.
  • Spreadsheet Essentials moving pretty fast. I'm maybe 1/3 of the way through it.
  • Computer Essentials--Ray is still working through his pedagogical edit. Less than two chapters to go! Then I have some things to clean up on it.
  • Bible course: George has it all written, praise the Lord! I've got to get to editing this one too, but it should go pretty fast.
  • Teachers Guide: Please pray for Anthony as he works on this one despite many interruptions.
So my keyboard will be smoking for the next few weeks, but I'm enjoying it! So excited to have my tickets to go back to Nigeria purchased. Praying for the teachers, principals, writers and editors the Lord wants to work with us, for adequately prepared material, for open hearts and guided steps. Also still praying for the Transformational Education Center, which we are seeing as more and more critical to getting the 2-Year Tertiary Degree written!
