Our gringo missionaries arrived but their luggage did not. Being very resourceful they figured out the pay phones at the Santiago airport and called Presidente Bruce to inform them that they had missed their connection and would be arriving late. We finally retrieved them at the Antofagasta airport, without luggage, but they all had smiles on their faces. Later we returned to the airport to welcome our Latin missionaries and soon all were together at the Institute for training, dinner and introductions to their trainers. Afterwards we put them on buses to their new sectors, many of them having to travel an additional 12 hours to Arica.
