Cochabambas' 5 stakes celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Church in Bolivia by reserving a Plaza in downtown Cochabamba and joining in a "Feria".
The Relief Society headed up the whole thing.
There were booths to teach about food storage and 48 hour emergency kits.
I learned about the versatility of soda bottles. Theycan be used for food storage, sprouting grains,
planting vegetables, and the bottles are even artistically cut up and painted to make floral arrangements.
There were booths for raising chickens, and guinea pigs.
And the Relief Society shared and sold their beautiful handcrafts. There were beautiful crocheted sweaters, blankets, baby things etc. as well as hand painted table cloths, crafts. baked goods and oil paintings
... and they filled out many referral cards
They are amazing young men and women and so fun to watch as they serve and teach about the gospel of Jesus Christ. (Look at the Elders outstretched hands :))
|We bought these roses at the feria. We paid a little less than $3 for 24 beautiful roses.|
|On our way home we got a quick shot of a newly married couple in front of the temple.|
