Stuck in the Mud?

For those who do not know, Hermana Blanca has spent her 6 weeks in the CCM and was slated to travel to Huancayo today. Unfortunately, there was a significant mud slide in the Andes that covered the main rode from Lima to Huancayo. It was devastating to the little village and there were several deaths caused by it. Our prayers certainly include the Peruvians who have been affected.

As you can imagine, we knew this would affect her travel to her mission area, but we did not know to what extent. We didn't receive our normal Wednesday emails, however this short message came in late tonight. We are excited to hear more from her and assume that will happen on Monday as she shifts her p-day schedule to that of the mission field. Here is what she said.

I don't have much time to write today but after mucho tiempo, an extra day in the CCM, serving in the Lima East mission for a day, having a blast, an airplane instead of a bus ride, drama at the airport regarding luggage and weight and everything I am finally in Huancayo! It is beautiful and cold and raining and green and fantastic!
Update (Monday 30 March 2015) - When asked how her plane ride was, Hermana Blanca responded: 
Incredible! it was like half an hour long in the smallest plane I'd ever seen. We were up in the clouds and all of a sudden we go lower than the clouds and you just see green. Green everywhere
