Larry Brown is waiting on word about his Permanent Resident Permit. Pray he gets this prior to his planned return to Malawi the end of June. If he doesn’t get the permit, the only way he can re-enter Malawi is to purchase an expensive return ticket to the US and then it’s a guess as to what he will need to do after he arrives to be allowed to stay and resume his ministry.
