My uncle is a leader in the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches (GARB) in Northeaster Brazil. Some years ago he published a book on the history of the GARB from 1950-2000. When I visited Brazil 3 years ago, he gave me a copy of that book.
This morning I spent about two hours looking through several boxes of books that are still in the garage, because of the lack of space in my office. During my search I came across my uncle’s book, only to find a picture of my late father I have never seen. My father was also a leader in the GARB movement in the 80′s. Perusing through some of the pictures of graduates, I came across this picture of my young father’s seminary graduation in 1976. My dad is the one on the bottom right; the late Rev. Severino Tenorio.
