More Excitement than we Need
We haven't written much because our excitement/free time ratio has been very low. That changed last week when the president of Peru announced he was dissolving congress and congress immediately impeached him. (kind of like highschoolers breaking up: "You can't dump me! I'm dumping you!") Congress won out. His vice-president, became Peru's first female president with full powers of the office. There have been escalating protests and riots since then. Yesterday, on my (Allen's) way home from Mollendo, the nearest larger city, I came upon a line of stopped vehicles and protestors burning tires in the middle of the highway.
Here in La Punta, things are actually very calm (probably because most of the traffic is blocked from entering the area!) and we are able to go about our ministries as before.
Ben, Mia and Paul are coming to visit (flying into the airport that is currently closed!) next week, so pray for their safe arrival and a good time 'home' with family.
