Hanging on by a thread

We met with the students last night and they all decided they want to go for it with the Visa situation. So, they are now at the bank depositing the money they miraculously came up with. The weekend will be spent looking for as much paperwork as possible to prove they have ties here in Mexico. Monday morning they will be at the Consulate early and give it a shot. I can't believe it, but it still looks like we may be going! We may eat rice and beans the whole trip, but we may actually go! Update to follow on Monday about this...

Veeery interesting . . .
I am praying for your group but also intrigued by the cultural statement that is being made . . hmmmm . . .
What do you think of this all? I have found often working with the deaf that it's expected that I/we would pay for a lot . . . expected that we would pick up the slack.
Question - do the people not pay their water bill there like they don't pay it here?
