We applied for a new passport for Thomas, with his new name on it. It will come (God willing) by next Monday. Unfortunately Juergen will be in Israel on business next week. We will probably have to travel to Frankfurt, Germany on Friday this week to apply for Chinese Visas, and I'll need to go again next week to apply for Thomas’s visa. They said the Visas take 4 days. I would try to apply for all the visas next Monday, but Juergens passport will be in Israel! If our TA comes next week, we are still hoping to travel the first two weeks of April (our kids have vacation then). We may need to pay the large costs of being in Guangzhou during the trade fair. We have no other choice. It is not legal for our kids to miss two weeks of school. Even missing one week is pushing it! It's basically going to take a miracle to get our TA, a consulate appointment, visas, airline tickets...and...And...
Thank God He is good at miracles! Just watch, amazing things are about to fall into place! Oh...problem! Juergen needs his passport for Israel. But China will give him a same day visa for an extra 30 Euros, so I guess it's still do able.
