Oh my, will it never end? The packing and shipping I mean. We received the shipping quotation, and the "okay" for shipment this afternoon. This is good news! Yes, you did remember correctly - our container is in Namibia, and it is full of all our personal belongings. Problem is that we don't know when it will find it's way to Malawi. The shipper is prepared to fetch it and bring it to Malawi, but the problem is that we do not have our TEP (temporary employment permit) yet. Without our TEP we cannot ship our container. The paper-work is in process, but we are waiting on issuance.
Packing... yes, we will need to send a crate from the USA to Malawi. This will be some household items, office equipment, clothes, etc. We will ship this before we leave for Malawi, and hopefully it will be there shortly after our arrival.
Fredna is a happy camper tonight after receiving word that we are good to ship from this side. This has been somewhat of a concern.
So, we are off to find packing material and begin the process - AGAIN!
