Cranking Up the Stress Factor

We just realized that our visas for Chile expire three days before we arrive home from Haiti.

This ain't a good thing, folks.

This means a trip downtown with the entire crew at 8:00 in the morning tomorrow is a must.

This means requesting an extension of our visas because there is no way we can do all the paperwork required for our permanent residency requests before we leave.

This means the fact that Friday is a national holiday is especially problematic.

This means that what we were told was going to happen for us to apply for residency (ie, we'd receive a letter in the mail with the necessary documents to fill out - which is why we didn't look into this earlier, because we were naively waiting for them to arrive) did not happen.

This means, welcome to Chile ... where paperwork is king and you need papers from at least three different offices in three different parts of a city of six million people to even present your application.

This means, most of all ... we appreciate and need your prayers more than ever!

Oh My! Paper work never ends.
Be safe on your trip to the city.
