We began with a song and prayer and then Hno. Torres spoke to us. He is a sealer in the temple plus he and his wife were a former president and matron of the Tampico Temple. He detailed what a miracle and blessing it is to have a temple here. He and his wife were sealed in the Mesa Arizona temple. Until the later 1970’s, Mexican law required that all buildings be public and officials could enter into our church buildings at any time. The law was changed allowing privacy and the church proceeded with building temples in Mexico. There are now 12 operating temples in Mexico and 1 under construction in Tiajuana. Hno. Torres was followed by Hna. Ruiz who is an assistant matron at the temple and current “acting matron” since Hna. Soriano is battling some serious health issues. After Hna. Ruiz’s message, Paul and Brother Day sang “An Angel from On High” also known as “Un ángel del Señor.” President Soriano spoke telling some stories about the faithfulness of his ancestors through the ages as well as his current call via Skype from President Uchtdorf.
