If you have been following Elder Bergquist's blog you are aware that he got his mission call to Belo Horizonte Brasil, but due to visa problems to Brasil he went to the MTC in Provo instead of Sao Paulo Brasil. After finishing his time in the MTC he had still not received his visa so he was sent to the Billings Montana mission to serve and wait. He has been serving in Powell WY for the last 10.5 weeks - he flew to Billings on Feb. 5th. In his email yesterday he said that transfers are coming up next Monday, they get their phone call on Friday telling if they were being transferred or staying in Powell.
BUT, today I checked his visa status, like I do EVERY day, and it has moved to "authorized"!!! There are 4 steps it goes thru... I tried to copy and paste the results that I found today but it down let you completely. It has a read dot where it is in the search result... anyway, it has been authorized so... I am not sure how long it will take to go from "authorized" to "ready for collection" but I wouldnt think it should take too long! Maybe he will be flying to Brasil next week!!!
