Visas are in hand. Tickets are purchases for leaving Bloomington IL on January 8th. We will then be enrolled in language school for at least 9 months. The language school has found an apartment for us (small 3 bedroom, they say). It is on the 4th floor, but he said it overlooks a park so the kids are excited to have some grass. We will be located in the city of Campinas (outside of Sao Paulo). Thank you all for all the prayers said, God is moving as He finishes up what needs to get done the next 2 weeks before we leave!
