In addition, last week Elena and a friend went to Cebu for the CFO seminar. Two other friends joined them for a mini vacation at a resort in Cebu. Monday was the seminar and Tuesday they enjoyed the resort. They returned Wednesday morning. In the afternoon, Elena went to the DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs) and received her new passport.
Worst case, it could take 8 months or more to get Elena her visa and trip to the USA but I will look for and use any resource I can find to get her here quicker.
We do video chat every morning and evening and since we have a Magic Jack in Davao, Elena and I usually talk on my cell phone in my mornings as I am driving the taxi. We do end the call when I get a customer, but call back after I drop them off.
With this, we stay in communication but I miss her hugs, kisses and presence as I sleep.
Please, all readers, add a prayer for Elena’s visa to come through quickly.
