Oakland 8th Ward Anniversary from alvin ahquin on Vimeo.

This video has a special place in my heart. Eight years ago, I served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Oakland, California Mission. It was such a beautiful time for me. The last stretch of my mission I served the people of this vary ward. The Oakland 8th Samoan Ward. In it's infancy, this ward was a small branch of dedicated Samoans who traveled near and far to hold church meetings at Oakland Temple. The bond that these pioneers had for each other grew so much that the younger generation continues that same bond. I had to document this special day and it's a wonderful way to do it with video.
