It was starting to be a bad day...

with the rain and everything. And then the girl at the photo store looked at me like I was trying to steal someone's boyfriend because I was going out to lunch with a friend. Then the dog at Projeto Vidinha bit me, on the knee, with her evil, pointy little teeth. And I received a weird, four-page letter. And then UNISUAM, the university I've been trying to get into for this ridiculous visa, tells me that I can't enroll. Goodbye, student visa. And I watch as all of my dreams and everything I've worked for go sliding, sliding down the drain...

And now I can't even get amazon.com to work for me.

Yesterday both internet cafes shut down on me in the middle of work; in the second one, only MY half of the place stopped working...

But I have some good people on my case. A pastor with great connections, a professor who is taking the time to pull some strings, a couple of politicians. Maybe something can come through.

Now I really will just sit back and wait for something to drop out of the sky, because I'm tired of running around for nothing.

God, we await a response.

God gave you the desire to be there, and I believe He will work on your behalf to keep you there. We'll be praying harder for the visa . . . and for smoother sailing for you! Bad days don't last forever!
