For the last three weeks, container # 32 has been stuck in customs. This finally lead to some political maneuvering which resulted in Dr. John being granted a 90-minute meeting with the Peruvian Vice Secretary of Health.
Also, involved were the former Vice Secretary of Health Dr. Melitón Arce and the President of the Congressional Health Committee Karla Schaefer.
In the talk that he gave to eight attentive listeners, the missionary doctor described Diospi Suyana as a work of faith that again and again, was being jeopardized by Peruvian bureaucracy.
The Vice Secretary’s response: The container needs to be processed and released from customs by tomorrow! Hopefully, this will happen.
