Mi Vida, Mi Historia — stories of Latin American Latter-day Saints. See an online version of the exhibit that was in the Church History Museum. Mi vida, mi historia es la expresión y el testimonio de los Santos de los Últimos Días latinoamericanos que protagonizan esta exhibición. Sus relatos personales de convicción y creencia representan, en forma colectiva, la historia épica de los millones de santos que han aceptado el evangelio de Jesucristo en Latinoamérica. Esta exhibición nos ayuda a comprender la forma en que los santos de Latinoamérica, quienes aportan individualmente las bellezas de su patrimonio nacional e identidad cultural, enriquecen el cuerpo de la Iglesia y fortalecen a cada uno de nosotros, llevándonos a la unidad de espíritu y a un sentido de unión.
