On Monday mornings, Mary Beth goes out to SIM's camp to play horse wrangler in the morning and kid wrangler in the afternoon. (Neighbor kids visit her apartment in the parsonage to play games and learn how to apply to the Bible to their lives.) It takes about two hours to get there if the buses go well. Today they didn't go so well. A little over halfway to camp her bus stopped and sat hardly moving for an hour. It turns out there were strikers protesting (we don't know what they were protesting against, so clearly not a helpful strike to convey their dissatisfaction) and blocking the road. After her patience ran out, Mary Beth got off the bus and started looking for a vehicle heading back to Arequipa with an available seat. Thankfully, her prayers were answered by a taxi being driven by Carlos, the man who does maintenance work at the camp, who also felt waiting for the road to open would be futile. On the way back they came across a truck that had just recently tipped over on a curve, blocking the road again. Carlos and his brother saved the day by helping a group of men tip it back up onto its wheels so everyone could continue on their way!
