On Friday morning, we received a phone call with excellent news. Our three suitcases were at the Piura airport. We took a taxi back to the airport this morning. Each time we traveled to Piura, (three times this week) the cost was around $50, and takes about an hour. The taxi driver waited patiently for us as we were talking with LATAM about our baggage. Each time it took at least 45 minutes to work with the airlines. What a patient driver!. I could only imagine what it would cost in the United States to do something like this!
The sisters do not have a reliable vehicle (1980 Bronco) and use a taxi when guests stay with them. They have also rented a car or a van, (depending upon the size of the mission group) Thanks to Sister Monica for all the calls she made to Latam to locate our suitcases. Thanks to God for getting them to us in all one piece and in a timely manner.
We can now work on assembling and testing our 50 water purification systems.
