Mission in Cochabamba Feb/March 2012

This is a large Christus statue on the hill in Cochabamba.  The temple missionaries visited it on P-Day. We can see it from our apartment window.  It is lighted at night.  The right hand of the statue points to the Temple. 

This is our group.

The view of Cochabamba from the Staue.  This shows just a small part of this big city.

Two interesting ladies we saw on the hill.  They have on native dress and hats.  They did not want their picture taken.  Maybe because of the big chaw of coca leaves they had in their mouths.

This little lady was trying to stay dry during a rain shower.  We are standing in front of the building where the Mission Office is located.  She did not have one tooth is her mouth.  She wanted Lloyd and I to take her to the United States.  We wished we would have asked her age.

We attended a special baptism.  Elder Murphy and Elder Nieve taught this family.  A mother, father and four children.
The mother and father were married that same evening just before they were baptised. So they had a wedding/baptism party.

Lloyd, Glen and Helen Kennedy standing under one of the beautiful flowering trees here in Chochabamba.  We are walking to the grocery store,  IC Norte.

                                         Another beautiful tree.

We had a fun family activity day at the Bella Vista Branch.  Elder Cartwright and Elder Cardenas helped with the games.

This is the airplane we fly on to Tupiza and Sucre.  The airline in BOA.

Lloyd is having is shoes shined at the airport.  They really do a good job.

This man was playing a small drum and cow horn and the girls were dancing at the airport.  They are getting ready for CARNAVAL.  A big celebration all over South America.

This a fruit stand just down from the Temple.  We enjoy this fresh fruit year round here.  Perfect climate.

This is the way we haul ne mattresses to the missionary apartments.  It works ok.  It is a common sight here in this city.

This is Samuel.  He was at the temple. He was waiting for his mother who came to a sealing.  He told us his name and he said like "Samuel the Lamanite!"  I'm 11 years old and when I'm 12 I can go inside the temple. He was great.

This family was sealed in the temple. They have 10 children.  The missionaries who taught them are Elder Murphy and Elder Hull. What a special day.

Only in Bolivia will you come to church on sunday and find turkeys on the sidewalk.

This is a picture of the electrial wires in Cochabamba.  We see men up on ladders tyrying to fix them.  I wonder how they know which wire to work on????


One more blooming tree.
