Efigenia Silberman, United States Citizen

It's been a long wait, but it's finally here.  Geña went in for her Test and Interview today and made an oath along with 75 other applicants from 31 different countries to the United States of America.  The Interview went really well, it was quick and easy.  We were a little concerned for our unique situation with not having official documents of our travelings across the border as well as one more document that we were missing.  The Official didn't ask for anything, just asked a couple of questions about the weather, our organization, and when she'll return to Mexico plus 6 Exam questions and in 15 minutes she was finished.

Thank you for praying!  We are excited; once we apply for an expedited Passport, we will be making our way south to Mexico sometime next week with hopes to be in Cofradía the first week of February.  One thing we are so excited about is knowing that we're going to be able to be part of the biggest step in the ministry's history in Cofradía on February 27 as we inaugurate the new church facility.

Citizenship Test/Interview

Geña goes in for her Naturalization (Citizenship) test and interview on Tuesday morning (1/11).  Thank you for your prayers.  Our hope is for her to have the opportunity to make the oath that same day which will allow us to return to Mexico ASAP.

Happy New Year!  We are enjoying our time here in Washington with our friends and family.

Last month, we asked for your prayers concerning...

  • Health Insurance We have found a Health Insurance that is suitable for our family.  We are waiting for the underwriter’s thoughts about my knee surgery in 2009.  Thank you for continuing to pray about this.
  • Monthly Support Thank you to all of you who have responded to this request.  In order for us to purchase and keep the Health Insurance, we are in need of raising our monthly support. We are looking for 30 monthly commitments of $20.  That will raise our support $600 a month.  If you can help with this, we would really appreciate it.
  • House Thank you to all who have helped us in this area.  We are raising money to add two rooms and a bathroom to the upstairs of our home in order to host visitors and students.  If you would like more information, please contact us.
  • Geña’s citizenship  Geña’s Naturalization Interview is set for January 11.  Thank you for praying for her in her preparation and during the Interview at 8:45AM.
