Are you sure that was '71 and not '73 or early '74? I see Bill Senger, who was in my ordination class ('73) and would have been there for the regular 6 month introductory course in '73/'74 before going on to Venezuela and I recognize Skip Flynn, Ray Finch, Steve DeMott, Pierre Herbert, Mike (?) who were probably all OTP students (the program became mandatory after the '72 Chapter and was voluntary for a few years before that), and Sister Joan Murray who was in Ahacachi for my first few years there, along with Dave Ratterman. (I was in Coch in the summer of my deacon year in '72 for an experimental 6 week crash course (6 hours a day of ALM !) , then for the regular 6 month course in the fall of '74 through '75 after my ordination ('73) and finishing my graduate nursing eduation ('74).Joe Picardi

I think that photo I sent was taken in the summer of 1971. It was a group photo at the end of one of the language training sessions.
Ray Hill invited me to serve in Chile as a lay missioner and covered my 3 months of training at the language school. (I had left the seminary a couple years before.) The Lay Missioner Program did not begin until 1975.
Hi Al and frank,
In what year was this picture taken, Al? Frank, what was the occasion/event of the picture in which you were not?
Thanks, Frank, for forwarding that great photo of the Bolivian gang. Thanks, Dan, for the restoration. Who can Photo Shop Frank to join the gang?
Hey john Logan Moran, Winkler, Newpower, Higdon, Zierten,
Send this on to anyone whose email you have. A great pic (preserved by Bill Allen and restored by Dan Hemesath) with only one drawback. I am not in it.
best, Frank Gerace
