Lisa and I arrived in Lima around midnight. We were cautiously optimistic that we would be able talk with customs about the donations based on the 2015 experience. Customs told us to bring a letter from our church proving that these were donations.
|Changing our flight with LATAM|
|Filing a baggage claim|
We filed a claim and had to reschedule our flight with LATAM. We were told that the suitcases would come in today, Tuesday, July 11, at noon. We rescheduled our flight for 4pm this evening to arrive around 5:50 pm in Piura. Thanks to LATAM, we stayed at a really nice hotel in Lima called Novotel. They also paid for our transportation to and from the hotel.
We need to work with customs at 1 pm today once we pick up the suitcases that were left behind in Orlando. Please pray that we are able to take our flight this afternoon and not have to another day in Lima. As much as we like Lima, we'd like to get to our Paita home to spend time with our sisters at St. Clare School.
