I Applied For My US Passport

I went to apply for my US passport yesterday at the post office here in our city. I had to call my friend Toni to take me there because hubby is working and he gets off at 4:00 PM. The office that issues the passports closes at 4:00 PM. In fact hubby and I went there the other day at past 4 PM and the office was already closed. I wanted to get my passport soon so I called my friend to take me there. I'm so glad that I have a friend whom I can ask help if I need it.

The clerk asked me if I can wait 4 to 6 weeks to get my passport and I said yes. I paid $116.05 for my passport and that includes my passport photo. It so happened that the clerk who is in-charge of the passport application is a pastor of a church here in our city. I talked to him and he told me that when he started his church, only him, his wife and their son were attending the church service for a year. He almost gave up but a fellow pastor told him to just keep the door of the church open. Then after a while some people came in and now they have an average of 40 to 50 people in their church now. Their church services is now being aired on cable tv station. It was a great story to hear and I was really blessed. Never give up and just trust in the Lord.
