The third week of January we traveled with 12 members of the
Quiriza Branch to the Temple in Cochabamba.  This is Isabel and Diogenes

Martinez.  Their daughter Liliana and grandson Roly received 
their endowments and had their families sealed.  

Maria Guadlupe came with us to the temple.  She received her
endowment July 2012 and had her husband sealed to her then.
She was excited to visit the temple again.

Lloyd, Ken and Dan were three of the first missionaries to serve
missions in southern Bolivia.  Diogenes was the Branch President in Quiriza 

at that time..That was about 45 years ago.  Ken and his wife Eve are serving as
 Temple Missionaries in Cochabamba and Dan and his wife Christy are the
Mission President of the Cochabamba Bolivia Mission.  
What a special time we all had.  Great memories and old friendships renewed.
Maria, Luisa, Isabel, Lilian, Mabel and Milena.  A special group

After a good week at the Temple we are waiting at the gate of
temple for a taxi.  Diogenes was able to get a hearing aid while
in Cochabamba.  He had a big smile on his face after he put in
on.  It was about a 14 hour bus ride back to Tupiza.
Milena had a fun ride at the bus terminal while waiting to get
on the bus back home to Tupiza.

Branch President Roly Flores added a
little padding and he looked great in his
new santa suit.

 street of Quiriza. They had some small bags
of candy, peanuts and an orange  for the children.  
Santa and his pack.  
Santa Claus visited every house he could in Quiriza. 
Santa and his parents Adolfo and Marlena Flores.  
A  lot of people wanted to give Santa a hug and a thank you.
He knew where all the good girls and boys live in Quiriza. 
Santa's elves were worried that he was going to
run out of treat bags before he visited everyone.  
More hugs for Santa Claus.  
Where did all these children come from???
