The steps are in motion. We have written two of the most important letters we have every tried to write. One to the director of Ihar's school and the other to the Minster of Education in Belarus. They are being reviewed and prayed over as I write this. Next step is to have them translated into Russian. And then the scary part, mailing them. Scary because if our requests are denied, that's it. There are no more chances for now. Please join us in prayer, that God would move the hearts of these men; that He would move mountains and work out all the details for Ihar coming to America on a student visa. And most of all, that Ihar would see God's hand in all of this and he would invite Him into his heart. You see, Ihar has not accepted Christ as His savior....and I know this is God's will...What we are seeking to do may be called blind faith. For you see we have nothing to rely upon but God Himself.
2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promises, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
