Mark and I received a letter in the mail yesterday with an appointment time for our immigration fingerprints. We're so thankful to have heard back from USCIS, but the appointment time is Monday, August 23rd at 8:00 a.m. It's practically impossible for us to make this appointment, and they really don't ask you when a good time would be for you. With school starting on August 12th, I just cannot see taking off a day of work that soon! It's time to set up routines and procedures with my students, and every minute matters.
We ask you all to pray with us about this appointment time. We are planning to go to the office tomorrow around 4:00 p.m. and beg to get them earlier. We would love for there to be next to no one there and for them to willingly fingerprint us really quickly, so we can send off our dossier before school starts. I know it is a lot to ask, but it's hard to see right now how we will be able to get our fingerprints done in a timely manner unless God grants us favor with them tomorrow.
Please pray that they will be accommodating and understanding.
