When we entered Honduras back on June 25th we received 90 day tourist visas. This was the longest visas we could receive at the time. We have since started the long and expensive process of applying for residency. When we get Honduran residency we will be able to stay in Honduras for up to five years without leaving.
With a 90 day visa we are required to leave Honduras for 72 hours and we must go at least two countries away…Costa Rica or Belize. Therefore, this blog entry is written to you from Belize, where we have gone for three full days.
Until our residency is approved we will have to continue to leave Honduras every 90 days.
While this is inconvenient, we don’t want to reside in Honduras illegally. It does not help our ministry if we are breaking the law.
The bad news is, until we receive our residency status we will have to continue to leave Honduras every three months. The good news is Mike’s sister and brother-in-law flew down to Placencia, Belize to spend a few days with us.
