President Dieter F. Uchtdorf recently spent a few days in Tijuana to dedicate Mexico’s 13th temple. But his activities there stretched beyond temple duties.
The second counselor in the First Presidency also visited with a pair of key local religious and civic leaders—making new friends for the Church in this vibrant border city.
On December 12, President Uchtdorf spent time with Tijuana Archbishop Rafael Romo Muñoz and the city’s top elected leader, Mayor Jorge Astiazarán.
Also participating in the visits were Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and their wives, Sister Harriet R. Uchtdorf and Sister Kristen M. Oaks, along with Mexico Area President Benjamin De Hoyos of the Seventy and his wife, Sister Evelia De Hoyos.
