Office Manager

Manager History:

Brother Juan has been a distributor for 20 years. For 17 of the last 20 years he worked full time for Lloyd Aero Boliviano the national airlines of Bolivia. A few years ago, Brother Juan and all the employees lost their jobs, because the airline went bankrupt. Since then he has been working full time.

Years ago our brother's work at the airline was very instrumental to VGR in sending the cassettes of Brother Branham to Bolivia. Unable at that time to send material there by crate we had to send all the material by way of the Post Office. However sending the cassettes was very expensive because of the Customs expense. Through the airlines he worked for, he was able to arrange to put the cassettes on the LAB flight to La Paz at no charge, and he would get the cassettes as the airplane arrived and avoid Customs.

Today, Brother Juan is very active in visiting the brothers and sisters who live in the remote areas of the country. This involves long hours of travel under some very dangerous conditions, as the country is going through some very hard economic and political problems. 

Office History

In 1988, the first Spanish books arrived from Jeffersonville to Brother Tarqui and today he continues at his post of duty.  At that time, there were only three churches in the capital city of La Paz and today there are 20 churches which consist also of La Paz Alto. In 1997 the distributor designated one floor of his house to be a VGR office which he operated on a part time basis. When the national airlines that he worked for and his father before him went bankrupt, he lost his job and he began working full time in the work of the Lord.

For many years the Spanish cassettes from Voice of God arrived via the airlines through friends of the distributor because it was thought to be impossible to send by mail. The airlines has since failed, but the Lord opened the doors to send all the material to the office via crates. Today the Message is being taken throughout the country and since 2006 much progress has been made taking the Message to the forest areas of the Amazon.
