Our updated count for Lucy Joy’s Puzzle Project tells a wonderful story
of the generosity of many who have contributed…
We are almost half way there!
Let me share a few more details with you, you will be blessed!
Many young people that we know have sponsored puzzle pieces themselves, by crafting, baking, and babysitting to raise the money. Perhaps we have not heard all the stories, and we do not have pictures of everyone’s hard work and service, but here are a few that have been shared with us!
We look forward to the day when we can share these stories with Lucy Joy,
stories of how she was loved and anticipated by so many.
Our Dossier should begin its journey to China tomorrow,
with a few stops along the way!
First, it needs to be sent to the state of Alabama (where Lifeline Children’s Services is located) and Shelby County (the county where their Birmingham office is located).
This should take about 1 week.
Next, it will need to stop off at the Chinese Consulate in Houston, TX.
This will take about 1-2 weeks.
After that, it is off to China,
hopefully by the end of May!
Once we are DTC (Dossier to China), it will take 3-4 weeks to be logged in.
After we have an LID (Log in Date), we should receive our
Letter of Approval (LOA) in 2-3 months.
We should be able to travel 2-3 months after receiving our LOA.
If you have been counting along with me, a conservative estimate
might put us traveling sometime between October and the end of the year.
Will you pray with us that all of this (and more!) will be accomplished in
God’s perfect timing?
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him…
