On July 28 we got web and email notice that the church’s application had been approved. By Aug 1 the awaited document was in my hands via courier. I booked a truck, and my son Greg helped me load up (twice! The power-steering on the first truck we loaded failed, so we had to move everything into another! Got some appropriate discounts from the company as result) Here is a picture of it in front of the Mobile/Trailer I was living in near Brant Alberta.
Gratitude for God’s providence in the church in Saskatoon and High River giving me survival employment and an opportunity to be Kingdom usefull while I was waiting for the paperwork remains strong for me. They paid me to preach and do some work, and both provided me free places to live.
I crossed the border after some grilling and some warnings and submitting fingerprints. I arrived in Oskaloosa Iowa on August 9, and it was a HUGE relief to finally be here.
