I just received the following email from Mark Coffey:

I just talked to Matt Allen on the phone and he wanted me to let you know that they got their Visas.  The PNG lady at the embassy didn’t want to go into the office on Black Friday so she went in last night (Thanksgiving) and to see if she received the email for approval.  It came through.  She shipped the passports with the Visas by FedEx this morning and it should be to his house on Saturday.

I am so thankful that God worked in this situation and it appears that the Matt Allen will be on the field on time. I will miss him here in the states and his heart to get people to the field.

I pray that others will rise up that will challenge young men and women to go to the mission field. Please continue to pray for the Allens.
