MR says: Though no one spoke in their native language this past conference, Elder Christofferson did surprise members around the world by recording his own talk in Spanish, following the lead of other Apostles like Elder Richard G. Scott.

This weekend, I had the unique opportunity to watch General Conference from a stake center in Trujillo, Peru. As the session began, I remember feeling a little disappointed that no one spoke in their native language.

As a bilingual RM, I can’t tell you how awesome it was to hear Spanish being spoken over the pulpit during last conference, but my disappointment was short lived when I got a very pleasant surprise. Just before Elder Christofferson got up to speak, the translator announced that he would be giving his own talk in Spanish.
