|We are standing in front of the Quiriza chapel with Branch President Roly Flores,|
his wife Mabel and son Lionel. They are a great family in Quiriza.
|One P-day we climbed the mountain in Quiriza to a place where the members have|
an area marked to show when President Spencer W. Kimball dedicated Bolivia for the
preaching of the gospel. We found a tall cactus on top.
They have been moved around by a few visitors. The members would like to have a more permanent marker placed there.
|President Flores helped us climb the mountain and get back down.|
You are looking down the valley. You can see the River
San Juan de Oro.
|The climb up and down was steep and the trail narrow in places with a|
steep drop off. Pres. Flores was a great help to Hermana Bradshaw that day.
|This is the trail coming down the mountain. The younger missionaries had no trouble|
climbing around. You can see the drop off on the edge is a good ways down.
|We went back to the chapel in Quiriza after our hike. We had a good picnic lunch|
and planted some flowers in the church garden. Elder Hack and Bilanzich were great help.
|Hermana (Sister) Boyce, Elder Rengifo, Elder Bilanzich, Elder Hack, Hermana|
Yupanqui and Elder Bradshaw working hard planting flowers.
|In Bolivia they know how to load their trucks with corn.|
I'm sure this was all done by hand. (somehow?)
|The town in Argentina is called La Quiaca.|
Elders Bradshaw, Viscarra, Rengifo, Hermanas Boyce,
Yupanqui, Elders Hack and Bilanzich.
|We stopped along the road and walked through|
a tunnel. This is looking out at the mountain
from an open space in the tunnel.
|This is the river. There is not too much water|
running this time of year. The rainy weather
during December, January and February will
fill the river bed.
|This is the tunnel the new road runs through on the way to|
Villazon. The old tunnel we walked through is on the right.
|The Sister Missionaries had there first baptism since becoming|
a companionship. Two sisters named Daniella and Naomi.
|While we were visting the Cano Family, Elder Rengifo jumped|
right in to help Gloria Cano make bread. The kitchen has
a hard packed dirt floor.
