While there are many things to enjoy here in the Philippines,
efficiency and bureaucracy are not necessarily on that list!
I find it interesting the events God ordains in our lives.
We were told Tuesday that Kirsten's, Ben's, Kurt's, and my visas could no longer be renewed and we'd have to leave the country and come back in to have them re-issued.
So, that is what we are doing!!! Tomorrow (2/26) we are taking an early morning flight to Singapore. (though it goes to Manila first. We will arrive in Singapore around 1:30 in the afternoon.).
While it tends to be a pricey place to spend time in, it was the least expensive place to fly to.
Thankfully we found a good hotel rate.
We will do some sight seeing, enjoy some of the local cuisine, and then fly back to the Philippines on Friday.
Kirsten and Ben have to miss two days of school. Not that they are disappointed about that!!!!
Mikayla's visa is fine and she'll be staying here to care for James.
