The Church in … Bolivia

Missionaries called to the Andes Mission arrived in Bolivia in November 1964. They baptized and confirmed their first convert that December.

The first Bolivian to serve a mission for the Church was Desiderio Arce Cano in 1967. He left a singing career in Argentina to serve in his native land. He later became a stake president and a mission president.

Membership in Bolivia has more than doubled in the past 10 years.
