We left this morning very excited that after 6 years of working, collecting papers, and PRAYING...we were FINALLY going to apply for our Colombian residencies!!!
We had to go to 2 offices, and we got to the last one by 12:30 or so. ONLY TO FIND OUT that they've changed their hours and closed 3 hours earlier than normal! The office had just CLOSED AT NOON! =(
So, we decided we'd try again early tomorrow morning.
We ate lunch together and Phillip showed us a new mall he had visited recently.
On the way home OUR BAG WAS STOLEN WITH ALLLLLLLLLLLL of our Passports clear from the year 2000, all of our Colombian visas, our Argentine visas, all of our documents that we have collected for 6 years to get our Colombian residencies! We couldn't BELIEVE IT! There was money in the bag too, but the most important was ALLLLL of our paperwork/visas/passports that were all....GONE!!!
We reported the stolen bag to the police and came home and called people to PRAY!!!
Just 2 hours later Phillip's cellphone rang and the policemen have found a bag which could be ours. The police are holding 2 WOMEN in custody for STEALING OUR BAG!!!!
It is after midnight and Phillip is still doing a police report.
I'm not sure what is still in the bag, and what we are missing!
Your prayers are appreciated!
