Our apartment is beginning to feel like home. We are getting to know our surroundings, visiting the several supermarkets in the area, as well as the outdoor market held every Friday. Praise the Lord the various governmental steps we need to take to live here have all gone well so far. Pastor Figueira has been vigilant about getting us integrated, and we are very thankful for the work he has done for us. Please pray for the next steps for acquiring extended stay visas. We have a meeting on July 4 with the immigration system in Porto that Lord-willing will result in us receiving those necessary visas.
Please also continue to pray for the well being of the girls. They are beginning to adjust, and our desire is for wisdom as we raise them in this new environment. The Lord is truly in control of each step, and our prayer is that we will be used of Him to share His truth to those around us!
Thank you so much for your prayer and support! It is a joy to share all of this with you!
