Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints,
and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
Psalm 30:4-5

Today, 9 October 2012 – 7:25 AM, we finally received our passports with “Resident Visa” label pasted on one of its pages.

Our hearts are full of praises and thanksgiving for God’s goodness.

Our experiences here in New Zealand, along with achieving resident visa status, have made our faith in God stronger than ever before.

In whatever undertaking, such as migrating to a new country, trusting the guidance of God is very important.

Living in New Zealand for 11 months now, we can testify it’s God’s faithfulness, His Divine Providence that has carried us through, over and above our academic qualifications and skills.

Indeed, with God, nothing is impossible or even impossible is nothing.

What a great journey of faith for us all, for our family, relatives and friends, home group and churches, and everyone who prayed for us, giving encouragements, acts of kindness and financial support.

May God’s wondrous blessings be upon each and every one of you.

Forever our hearts will say, “Thank you, LORD!”

Thank you Lord God for giving us overflowing reasons to rejoice always each and every morning!
