Antonio Larrosa Family

Today in Maipu, Jim and I spoke at a Stake Conference with Elder Desilva and Elder Zivic. It was a wonderful day. They released the Stake President who had had a stroke, and this wonderful man with slurred speech bore such a sweet testimony, everyone was in tears. He was helped to the stand by his counselors and they stood and held him there as he talked. A man came up to Jim after the meeting. The above picture is of he and his family. His name is Antonio Larrosa, and when he was 14 years old he was baptized in Piriapolis, Uruguay. The missionary who gave him his baptismal interview to be baptized in Uruguay was Elder Jim Lindahl. They had a great time swapping stories and comparing who they both kept in contact with. There of course is no greater reward in the church than to see your missionary success 38 years later.
