Urgent Prayer and More Waiting

Pray for our Hernandez Missionary Family Religious Visa Renewal application to be approved before March 7, 2022 when the automatic extension expires. Over a year ago, CrossLink applied for the Hernandez family religious visa renewal that would expire in July 2021. As you may know from past updates, CrossLink tried to apply for premium processing before the visa expired. Premium processing is when you pay extra money to have your application bumped to the front of the line for review. However, we had the money for premium processing returned because a site visit by immigration officials to Iglesia Biblica Vida Nueva in Yakima was pending. We have heard nothing since, so we tried premium processing again on January 7, 2022 in the hopes that the site visit has happened and the paperwork is now complete and ready for review. We expect to hear something back in the next 15 days. We need the visa renewal approved before March 7, 2022, the last day of the automatic extension for the Hernandez expired religious visa or Pastor Misael will no longer be able to be employed as a pastor until the paperwork processes.

  • Pray for the visa renewal to be approved and for zero disruption to the Hernandez family and to the ministry in Yakima.
  • Continue to pray for the needs of Misael and Taira, their children, and the needs of the growing Hispanic ministry at Iglesia Biblica Vida Nueva in Yakima.
