During the application process for my visa in SVG I ran into a strange (but necessary) request. Immigration requested a copy of my criminal record from the United States.
Obviously this brings up a problem since I wasn’t in the States, and could not pick that up myself. So I did the next best thing.
I asked my mom for help!
My father was in Africa teaching a class at the time (he’s the one 8,000 miles away).
Within an hour
- My mom had gotten the record
- Taken it to Fedex
- And had it shipped to me
- I had the document in my hands two days later!
It’s a blessing to know that though I’m able to deal with most challenges of life, there are loved ones who are always willing to step in and help when neecessary.
