From the São Paulo Temple Visitors’ Center on Nov. 10, Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles participated in a Facebook Live, sharing his witness of the Savior Jesus Christ.

“Always remember that Jesus Christ is the King of kings. He is the Lord of lords and Prince of Peace,” Elder Rasband testified.

He invited all to be “preachers of peace” and reminded them of the Savior’s love. “Jesus Christ loves you. He loves the people of Brazil, and His Church is here to bring souls to [Him]. I love Him. I testify of Him — the great Prince of Peace.”

The video was shared on the Church’s Brazil Newsroom Facebook page. It was one of several Facebook Lives Elder Rasband participated in during his 11-day ministry to Brazil Nov. 4–13 — extending the reach of his visit to viewers across Brazil and beyond.

Elder Adilson de Paula Parrella, General Authority Seventy and Brazil Area president who accompanied Elder Rasband during part of his visit, said during the Facebook Live in São Paulo: “On behalf of the area presidency, I testify of the sacred calling of Elder Rasband and of him as a special witness of the Savior Jesus Christ.”

Elder Rasband’s visit to Brazil with his wife, Sister Melanie T. Rasband, included stops in Natal, Recife, Brasília, São Paulo and Porto Alegre. They ministered to members and missionaries and met with government and religious leaders.

While in São Paulo, Elder and Sister Rasband spoke to missionaries at the Brazil Missionary Training Center. They also met with Sérgio Moro, recently elected senator, and his wife, Rosângela Moro, recently elected federal deputy, and Elder Rasband presented them a copy of the Book of Mormon.

Elder Parrella told the Church News: “Elder Rasband’s visit to Brazil has been an expression of God’s love for the country and everyone living within its boundaries. It has been more than a visit; it has been a time of being ministered to one-by-one by a prophet, seer and revelator.
