Well it has been a difficult road for us. This fundraising adventure we took on has been full of ups and downs, and ultimately, stays and goes. We have finally come to a decision though. We are going. Although it's still not 100%, I would say its close to 80% sure. We have decided that we are going to leave the USA on a partial budget. We are currently at about $2,000 a month if everyone who has told us they will give begins in August. That means we are about $1,600 short monthly. However... We Have been informed that some other missionaries in Costa Rica are living on far less than $3,600 monthly. We have again looked at our budget and it is indeed what we need if we are seeking legal residency. So basically we will need to continue fundraising until we get to our goal. The new development that I want to tell you all about is this... While we are in language school we will be on student visas... That allows us to be there without the government required budget. So if we can get to between $2,200 & $2,500 we will go in august!!! I am very confident that we can reach our goal and leave as we first intended!! This development has created a lot of excitement in our house and we have begun selling and packing all of our belongings. Please pray with us that this last little bit will come in soon and that God will continue to prepare us to leave and start a new life in Costa Rica.
