God has answered so many prayers for us during these past months.  We traveled to Washington DC to apply for our visas to Brazil as ours had run out.   Barb loved speaking Portuguese once again and the lady at the consulate was surprised at her ability to speak without an accent.  (She learned it when she was 6)

We showed her that we had a 5 year visa last time and she told us that now they give a 10 year one.  The consulate can decide the length of the visas, deny it, give 90 days or longer.

Five days later our passports arrived with a 10 year visa!!  Praise the Lord as the price of the visa is $160 each now!!!
