Another blessing has come into our lives as a result of our visa delay.  Our oldest son, Bryan, was recently called to be in his ward bishopric and called to ask if his Dad could ordain him a High Priest (the office of the Priesthood required to be in a bishopric).  What a great privledge and honor to be asked.  We got approval from the MTC Mission President to leave, and we're headed to Dallas tomorrow morning.  And the icing on the cake is we'll be there to help bless their new baby girl, Camille Rose. 
Today we had lunch with our very good friends, Gary and Sherry Neuder.  We first met the Neuder's in Lagos where we both worked for ExxonMobil.  Gary retired from EM in Nigeria and was very shortly thereafter called to be the Mission President of the Nigeria Lagos mission.  They returned about a year ago, and have recently been called on their second mission to Pittsburg, Pennsylvania as member and leader support missionaries for 18 months.  They are here this week for their mission training and will be leaving tomorrow for Pennsylvania.
