Julie and I arrived in Spain with a significant problem; Julie didn’t have her visa. 8 weeks before we left, we called the Spanish consulate in Chicago to ask when Julie’s visa would be ready. They told us it would be ready in 4 weeks, so we could buy our tickets 6-8 weeks out without any worries. We bought our tickets, but 8 weeks later, there was no visa. We had two tickets for Spain but only one visa.
The reason this was such a headache was that Julie could come with me as a tourist, but she would now need to fly back to Chicago alone to pick up her visa, and a round trip flight is no small price tag.
But before we left, a relative called to let us know that he would buy Julie’s round trip ticket! Although Julie still had the stress of flying round trip for a 15 minute meeting, we were thrilled to know God provided the money. We thank the Lord, the giver of every good gift, for this blessing.
