As mentioned previously, we took our paperwork to the Bolivian Consulate this week. The issues with the Bolivian president didnt seem to be as much of an issue as we expected. However, we were not able to submit our paperwork.
Unfortunately, I didnt fully understand how one document was suppose to be taken care of. I didnt understand about getting it legally translated and then legalized.

That he would allow things to go through without any trouble.

However, we serve a God that can turn hearts and minds. He is the one that has called us to Bolivia and He can open doors that no man can shut.

So far, this does not affect our plans regarding Bolivia. We are still
