We were able to get an emergency appointment with the embassy this morning. We breezed in and out of a passport photo studio on the way, and got to the embassy within the 20 minutes they said we had to get there. Then we waited and waited for a meeting to finish. 

It was a good chance to make new friends, like Mwangi and Friendly Security Lady who let Jack and Mwangi sit together on the tall security stool. She gave them assignments: “write your names, and I will give you marks.” Then “put down 1 to 5 and I will give marks.” And “don’t play with the phone.”

Eventually we got a temporary passport and are ready for our second airport attempt. 

Thank you Father, and thank you to all who prayed!
