Sunday morning he held a 3 Stake Conference at a Conference building on the Fair Grounds. It was Villahermosa, Gaviotas and Cardenas Stakes- 2,200 people attended. It is a rare opportunity to hear from an apostle in person and many people took advantage of the opportunity.
President and I both spoke at the 3 Stake Conference. Elder Oaks had all the full-time missionaries in attendance stand up, we all stood up, then he asked all the Ward and Stake missionaries to stand up, a few more stood up, then he asked all the missionaries to stand up - it took a minute for everyone to realize that they should all be standing! Then he made the point that we should all be working together to help find those that are seeking the truth in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
