After about two months, five trips to the Nigerian Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, and multiple conversations with David Tyokighir from the World Renew Office in Nigeria, I was able to secure a visa - beginning the day the visa was issued. Receiving the visa on Wednesday, the Senegal World Renew staff were able to purchase tickets for that Friday. To say the least, the last week has been very hurried, from getting a visa, to arranging flights, and then arriving in Nigeria. I have now been in Nigeria for a week, arriving last Friday afternoon, and hope to spend just over 2 months helping with the curriculum and other World Renew activities in Nigeria. Please continue to pray for Jessica as she stays back working in Senegal, and myself as I adapt to a new environment, culutre, and take on new challenges in my work in Nigeria.
