The idea of establishing a museum of Mexican Mormon History came from a humble but unique collection left by my paternal grandmother's daughter, Consuelo.
As we pondered and prayed on the matter, we realized the significance that such legacy could have on future generations and felt challenged to preserve such history.
Without knowledge, education or experience in museum studies, we relied on the Lord and the scripture in Alma 37:6: "Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise".
My cousin Raymond had been the keeper of such memorabilia, with his help and that of Sergio Pagaza Castillo, a museum in Mexico City was started in 1991 and an extension was opened in Provo, Utah in 2011.
The endeavor has been a labor of love. With help from above, us four, Raymundo, Sergio, my wife Enriqueta and I, have made a dream come true. Others have taken a dream and with the help of the world have benefited many. Others have done great service for humanity with wealth and power. Us, with limited resources have brought to life a forgotten history - A legacy for the future.
