We received a call from the missionary department yesterday and they informed us we cannot go to Athens, Greece for our mission because the Greek Consulate on the West Coast is making people wait for seven months or longer to obtain a visa. No explanation from the Greek Consulate as to why.
Because we do not want to wait that long we have opted to go elsewhere. When we know for certain we will share the location.
Needless-to-say we are disappointed, but we know we will serve at the Lord's will.
Addendum: Of course now it is June and we have received our mission call to Cyprus, which is in the Greece Athens Mission - so I guess the Lord wanted us there all along! Yay!
