Little has changed since our last update. We continue to wait for the Italian Consulate to grant us visas so that we can leave for Italy and labor in the country. They have held our passports since May 15 and referred our application to Italy's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which has yet to make a decision. This caused us to miss our scheduled flight of July 9. We have a new flight scheduled for August 21, but we will need to receive our passports with the visa in order to board the plane.
