|On October 18, 2012 Elder Stephen Allen, wife Nancy, his son Steve|
and wife Allie visited Tupiza. They flew from Cochabamba on
Sunday morning in this plane.
|This country airport is not used often and this is the flight tower|
behind them. President & Sister Dyer, & the Bradshaws
helped them get their luggage and take them to visit
the America Branch. This is where son Steve served his mission.
|While waiting outside the church house a load of horses|
came by. Elder Bradshaw had to have his picture taken
with them. You don't see this very often in Tupiza.
|On our way to attend sacrament meeting in Quiriza we saw a herd|
of goats grazing. They stand up in these thorn bushes and eat a
hard seed pod.
|We had a nice meeting in Quiriza and the members were|
so happy to meet the Allens. Isabel and Diogenes Martinez
with the Allens. Diogenes was the first Branch President
in Quiriza when the chapel was built in 1969.
|Members of the Quiriza Branch.|
Mabel, Roly Flores (Branch President), his mother Marlena and
Isabel Martinez and granddaughter Luz Martinez.
|That evening there was a fireside in the America Branch. President Dyer, LLoyd and|
Steve gave some good talks on their missionary experiences. Marcelino Aban
with the Allens.
|The Dyers and Allens stayed at the Mitru Hotel. We picked|
them up early monday morning and headed for the airport.
|The Allens checked their luggage and we began to wait for the|
plane to arrive. It was going to make two trips to Sucre.
Where they were having another Zone Conference.
|We waited and waited. But no airplane. Finally they drove|
down to where there was cell phone service. The pilot was
not able to take off from Tarija, because of bad weather.
