Our extended-stay student visas and residency permits were approved today. Shortly after arriving in France we had to send our paperwork and permit information to the local immigration office via registered mail and await an appointment at Grenoble (about and hour away).

Wow! The last few weeks and months in the states were a whirlwind of activity. We visited family, friends and supporters. We attended conferences, training workshops, and seminars.

One question we get a lot is “When are you leaving?” Our typical response has been “When we get all the funds raised and the assignments completed that our mission agency has outlined for us”.
