Our Junior Warden's Daughter Got Zapped!
By God! It was Abby's 1st Birthday Celebration and her Christening at the same time. The proud father, Brother Hilario Abel Gomez organized a party attended by a few church friends, family members and a lone eater (outsider who is not actually related to the family, so I went there to eat...and brought along my lovely wife...and take photos...and wrote this blog...and posted these pictures)...

which symbolizes the cleansing of the soul.
The guests...with the proud Grandpa (right).

And God's words were broadcast in the air for everyone to hear
that this child Abby is in HIS protection.
The proud parents and the God parents.
Abby's energy was passed to her by these proud parents.
And the ritual of baptism is performed on Abby to proclaim
to everyone that she is GOD's precious child.

Party's OVER! wwaaahhhhh!!! I wanna go home!
Baby Abby, May God always protect you and guide you as you make your way to this world. To our Junior Warden, Brother Abel, the father, May you continue to shower your love ones with abundant love, wealth, attention and not failing to show them the way to our eternal creator.
