Good News from the MTC.
We began to hear good news from the MTC in Provo today, 31 visas came in. The elders will be flying out on December 21st. No word yet on a visa for James, but they were hoping more would come in tomorrow. We learned last week that there are close to 300 missionaries stacked up in the MTC in Provo, waiting for visas. In addition to all of the new Portuguese teachers they had to hire, they created two new branches. We also learned that the person in San Francisco who is in charge of signing the visas was mad at the church because of their stand on prop. 8 in California, so he has been sitting on the visa applications, rather than sign them and move them along. Perhaps the Lord has softened his heart and the work can now move forward.
