Making reference to the river that defines this area, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf told the Latter-day Saints during the cultural celebration that they are strong. "The Amazon River, in very many ways, represents your faith," said President Uchtdorf, who presided at the event.
In a region known for its life-giving water and flush rainforests, 1,200 Latter-day Saints danced to the song of the birds and the music of the rain on June 9 — celebrating not only their cultural heritage, but also a new temple -- the Manaus Brazil Temple -- built in the Heart of the Amazon. The temple is to be dedicated Sunday, June 10.
