Great story. I was unaware of the Mesa Temple's breakthrough for the Spanish Speaking Saints.

Of course the translation to Spanish was the first translation of the Temple ceremony ever. Even though we had a temple in Hawaii it was not translated to Hawaiian.

The work on the translation is one of the important legacies of Eduardo Balderas.

Elder Fallabella shows how central the Mesa Temple is in the lives of Latin American Church members. He has in his two general conference talks managed to tell two very moving stories related to his two different trips to Mesa, the one where he was sealed to his parents and the other where he was sealed to his wife.
