I have Good news and Bad news...

Hi everyone,

BAD NEWS: Today my parents phoned the American Embassy to make sure that I could use my naturalization certificate to fly to the US while using my South African passport. They said I can't do that and I need an American passport. So that means I have to make an appointment to get my passport so I can fly the the US. So my parents arranged a meeting on Friday to get my passport. Once I am approved I will get my passport in around 5-7 days, so my mom has changed our flight to November 17th.

GOOD NEWS: I have extra time to work on some fundraising ideas for the home. More time to make arrangements with schools/churches. More time to coach my soccer team (which I really enjoy). More time to update my blog with pictures and news. And more time to ask for donations from you guys!

So all and all it's not a complete loss. I just can't wait to come to the US and eat Krispy Cream donuts. And for the people in Oklahoma, my mom found this fundraising thing with Incredible Pizza. We buy $10 game cards from Incredible Pizza for $5 and we sell them for $10. So we make $5 per card we sell. And if we sell 1,000 cards that's $5,000! So even if we sell 500 cards, that's $2,500. So hopefully we will make some good money from that. And in Ohio, I think we will just sell those cd's of the music kids in Mameldoi. If you have an idea please post a comment, no idea is a bad idea.

"God Bless,

  1. Hi Josh,

    Spoke with your mom today and we thought up some good fundraising ideas. Sorry about the trip delay, but you're right about having more time. It's always a good thing.

    Can you add an RSS feed to your blog? I'd love to have the feed on my home page.

    Take care.

    Love, Mrs. Pace
