I got approved on the December 16th and my wife kept it from me because I travelled to a different city in china for business. I just got back now, and she said guess what? NOA2 APPROVED.... I want to say thanks to everyone on Visa journey, may the Lord give you all a speed testimony. You guys will share your story before the end of this month as well.... AMEN
