The countdown is on to February 17, 2010!

Saturday, October 10, 2009 e-mail today

No e-mail from Jed today so I'll update you all on our plans to go to Brazil in February to pick him up. We have received two very nice e-mails from President and Sister Myrrha. They have given us their approval and blessing to come and pick up Jed. We now have to climb the Visa mountain. Right now (as of September 1) the Brazilian Consulate in Los Angeles is requiring everyone who wants a Tourist Visa to appear personally. They are changing over computer systems. That may be different in December when we actually need to apply for our Visas but it's anyone's guess at this point. The kicker is that we need to get air travel arranged pretty soon. We have American Flyer Miles we want to use. So as of right now it looks as if we won't be traveling to Brazil. I did find out his release date this week it is February 16, 2010. It is a little early because he has to be out of Brazil by the 26th which is when his Visa expires.

So that is the latest. I hope we will hear from him next week. I'm almost wondering because he was in the office in a threesome, after his companion went home sick, that he might have gone back out this past week and so p-day changes back to Monday. They did get a lot of new missionaries this past week. We shall see!
