Yesterday evening was Alejandro's baptism, something he has looked forward to for months. It was a very emotional time for him.
Mirta and Ricardo Valente, Andres, Yolanda, Alejandro, and Jonathan Castro. Ricardo and Alejandro first became friends about 30 years ago in Córdoba and he came to Catamarca from Córdoba to perform the baptism.
The elders from Ambato Ward all came to support him. From left: Elders Puma/Peru, Espinola/Argentina, Larson/AZ, Thorup/UT along with Alejandro and Ricardo.
