Elder Van Komen will travel on August 14 to Lima.
Our prayers have been answered: David’s visa from Peru was approved! This means he will be able to travel to the CCM as his call specified. Suddenly, the MTC is looking much better now that he knows he will only be there 11 more days!
We are so grateful. This was not a “sure” thing. I have read many emails in my missionary mom “Peru” email group from concerned mothers whose sons and daughters did not receive visa travel documents in time and have spent more time in the MTC or even been reassigned to other missions. It’s a huge relief to know he is ready to go.
It does mean that the days of “easy” packages and letters are almost over, though. We’ll have to bake more cookies!
