January Newsletter...

Well, another month has come and gone. So what have we been up to this first month of 2014.

Murray was on the Africa Mercy docked in Pointe-Noire, Congo, for another short stint with Mercy Ships. We figured that since he didn't have any short-term plans in Cape Town it would make sense to go back to the ship for a bit - while we wait on our paperwork to come through. He had a wonderful time serving in the Reception department onboard, as well as exploring some of the culture of the Congo and reconnecting with old friends. It was a lovely time.

Candace continues her job as a float pool nurse at Daviess Community Hospital in Daviess County, Indiana. She is enjoying the challenge of nursing in a hospital setting, and has worked in the Med-Surg, Rehab, and Behavioural units. She has enjoyed being back in the USA for Thanksgiving and Christmas time, but we have both missed each other over these special times of the year. Candace will be coming to South Africa towards the end of February so that we can be together for our two-year anniversary. We're very excited to see each other again! :-)

Regarding our visa application process, we have heard that our paperwork has now reached the National Visa Center for visa processing. :-) They will determine which US Consulate Murray will have his interview at (most likely Johannesburg, since the Cape Town consulate doesn't deal with immigration visas). Once he has his interview he will be able to join Candace in the USA. It will probably still be a few months waiting though, as there is a lot more paperwork and application fees to be done, so please keep us in prayers as we continue to wait on the Lord.

Thank you for your continued prayers and may God bless you wherever you may be!

Much love from Cape Town and Indiana, Murray and Candace
