update

Hi everyone, This has been an interesting week. The country of Bolivia has been in turmoil and because of this our temple president put us on lock down which is that we cannot leave the temple block. We were instructed to have at least 10 days of food and supplies on hand plus water. We complied with all of these things. Today, Sunday, we had our church meetings in the president's home. It was very nice! We are about to have our break the fast dinner with the other gringos. Tomorrow we are in charge of the early morning devotional for the temple employees. Skousens will help us with this. We are so grateful for the chance to do many different kinds of things. Last week one of the stakes here in Cochabamba came in force to do baptisms, sealings, initiatory and sessions. It was outstanding!! The president of the stake is about 30 and one of the greatest leaders we have ever seen. They are blessed to have him. Pres. Hinkley promised the church members that if they would e faithful in their temple attendance their country would be blessed. We saw this blessing realized this week when Bolivia's President did not send his troops the Pancho Rojas into Cochabamba as he had threadened. We continue to love our mission and all that we are doing. Please continue to pray for us and we will continue to pray for all of you. The gospel is true!!Con much amor, Mom and Dad Grampa and Gramma
