Yesterday’s answer:

A.       The Saints in Panama

Who has the longest bus ride to an LDS temple? In 1979, the longest round-trip bus ride for patrons attending the Mesa Temple was for families in the Canal Zone of Panama. The 8,000-mile bus trek was over some narrow, dangerous roads through all kinds of weather and danger of attack by gangs of robbers in some areas. On Jan. 12, 1979, several families were the first to make the journey. The $160/person trip required most of them to sell many of their personal belongings to afford the once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
