Mexico City Saints Celebrate Temple Rededication (Photos)

On Sunday, September 13, President Henry B. Eyring, accompanied by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, rededicated the Mexico City Temple in three sessions. President Eyring, whose great-grandfather was one of the first missionaries in Mexico City, also attended a special celebratory pageant the day before in Mexico City's Metropolitan Theater. The temple was originally dedicated by Gordon B. Hinckley in 1983, then rededicated by Thomas S. Monson in 2008. This was its second rededication. Check out some fun pictures from the events below!
