42 Years Ago

This is Pablo Armando Albarracin from San Martin de Porras. McCrite and I baptized him 42 years ago. Then Elder Wade Noble came within a few days of us and baptized some of the rest of the family. He stayed active, went into the military and became a high ranking military person. He was stationed in Ayacucho when I returned 20 years ago and his is the story of the person that called in (not knowing it was me) and got me to go and baptize the rest of his family in the then North Mission. Jason will remember this as he went with me to visit them. Now 20 years later he is in a bishopric here in Lima and when he bears his testimony he says he is thankful for Elder Douglas, Noble y McCrite that baptized him and his family and he says he has been a member 42 years. Someone recently asked him if the Elder Douglas was the same one that was the mission president and he said yes. They then told him I was here again and so he came to visit us at the office. You want more? He is 54, was 12 when he was baptized. He has three 3 children. Two of them live here in Lima and the other?--------is 26 and studies in ------Madrid Spain. Go figure. We will visit the son of our baptism in January.
