I hope and pray that this letter finds you all well. Thank you so much for your continued prayer for us and for the children of Agape Kids Choir. God has really done some amazing work. We stand in awe of His handiwork. We wanted to let you know where we are at in the visa process.
We have just received a response from them. The response was not what we were hoping for. A few weeks back they sent us a reply asking for more documents. We quickly responded to their Request for Evidence with the documentation they were asking for. Now when we received this reply today it stated they were denying us based on our failure to reply to their last request. We do not look at this as a denial. We look at this as an opportunity for us to keep praying. We have been advised that we need to seek assistance for someone to go and hand deliver our documents.
The reason for this advice is that it is really not a closed door, but instead just another opportunity for God to be glorified. Everything the Visa office is asking for are things we have already provided. We believe this is a spiritual battle. We believe we are to keep pressing on and to pursue this to the end. More than ever we need to be praying. Please pray for God’s will to be done. Please join us in believing that God is still moving us forward.
The theme verse for the choir’s tour is Deut. 7:9 . . . He is Faithful
“Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments”.
Let’s keep praying and watching to see what the Lord has in store for these kids and the Never Once Tour.
Serving a FAITHFUL God,
Pastor Tom and Sandi Balli
