So, I hope I didn't forget anyone in the sent mail, but if I did, forward it to them.
President Bell just called and informed me that my VISA came through! I fly out of Kansas on November 11th at 11:00 AM and arrive in Fortaleza the next day at 3:00 PM or something of that nature.
This truly is a bittersweet day. I love Kansas, but I know I am to be in Brazil one day. I love you all and thank you for your support.
