The Amazon Jungle

Nosotros tenamous fotos nuevo por ustedes a mira a.

The Mission President opened up a new area in the mission and created a branch in Coca. This is a city of about 80,000 people that is located Southeast of Quito about 300 miles. It sits on the edge of the Amazon Jungle.

There are two rivers that go around the city. They are the Napo River and The Coca River. These two rivers converge into one and then empty into the Amazon River about a 100 miles East.

We have two Elders in Coca and the President asked us to fly over and find an apartment for them and to furnish it.

These pictures are of our adventure over there and in a small way tell the story of what we seen.

The branch is small, about 60 members and the meetings are held in a house that was donated to the Church by a very wealthy man whose wife is a member. Our meeting on Sunday was very humble. Hermana Curtis offered prayer in two meetings and I offered prayer in one meeting.
