Church History Museum exhibit: Learning about Latino members

In recent years, many new members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have come from Latin America.

The LDS Church History Museum, at 45 N. West Temple, is recognizing their lives and stories with an exhibit called "Mi vida, mi historia."

About 24 members from 18 Latin American countries share their stories of how the LDS Church came into their lives.

"One of the wonderful things is just to experience people's stories," museum curator Ray Halls said.

Reyna Aburto, from Orem, is one of those who shared her story. Originally from Nicaragua, Aburto was baptized in the LDS Church in 1989 in San Francisco.

"I feel very humble," Aburto said about being chosen for participation in the exhibit. "I believe we all have many stories we can tell. I believe we can all be in there. For that reason, it's humbling to be in there."
