We arrived safely in Pucallpa on Friday morning, after learning a thing about Peruvian bus rides. Here is a summary of our lessons:
1: If you haven´t been served dinner by 11 that does not mean it´s not going to be served. It probably means it is getting closer to being served.
2: The bus company is like a stubborn date. Let me explain. Even if some things get messed up, and the schedule is a little behind, they will still provide you with dinner and a movie (even if that movie starts at midnight and you just wanna sleep).
3: If your bus drives away while you are using the bathroom don´t worry it will probably come back for you.
4. THE BUS WILL BE HOT. THE BUS WILL BE HOT. THE BUS WILL BE HOT.
In our time in Pucallpa have been very productive. We have 6 churches mapped out so far. Tomorrow we are planning an ambitions itinerary, including 6 churchs and several hundred kilometers. Dario Santa Cruz (the Disrict Superintendant for Pucallpa) has been an amazing guide for us the last couple days and kindly agreed to accompany us tomarrow. We could not have been so productive without his help.
Thanks for your prayer and support!
