COCHABAMBA


Just a little info about the beautiful city we will call home. .  .  


The Cochabamba Bolivia Temple is the 82nd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.Bolivia's first convert to the LDS Church was baptized in December 1964, a month after missionaries first arrived. The temple was completed in April 2000.

Cochabamba is a city in central Bolivia, located in a valley bearing the same name in the Andes mountain range. It is the fourth largest city in Bolivia with approximate population of 1.938.401.  The name derives from a compound of the Quechua words qucha, meaning "lake", and pampa, "open plain".Cochabamba is known as the "City of Eternal Spring" and "The Garden City" due to its spring-like temperatures year round. 

THANKS for the information, Wikipedia! :)  We are excited to go see for ourselves!!!
