The holiday obviously didn't help the mood of the MOE official, she failed to give Alma our docs on the 24th but is now assuring us that she will hand over the dossier to our agency on the 3rd of January!
She still tells us that she will give permission to travel in January and if our agency can finally get their hands on our dossier by the first or second week of January then we will still be able to make our flights on the 19th.
If she fails to keep her word this time then we may have to think about moving to another region in Kaz, we don't want to do this as Ust is now our 3rd region and we have become used to the idea of traveling there!
We leave it with the Lord and trust that He will overrule in this situation and the dossier will finally be in the hands of our agency workers soon.
Hope everyone had a happy Christmas and trust you all have a good new year.
We will report back as soon as we get any more info, which should be around the 3rd/4th Jan.
Philip & Amanda
