Good News/Bad News: After over a month of waiting for our appointment with the immigration office in Boston, we finally received our letter today. We are scheduled to go down on September 27th! Though we planned on getting to Japan by the end of August, this delay has now set us back for the end of September.
The upshot of this whole wait has been the blessing of spending time with close friends and supporters here in Boston, while also having the chance to be with family in Des Moines for a week. Now, we can finally have an end date for our time here and have an answer when people ask how long we are here (of which we typically say, “Perhaps another week or two”).
