Music and Inspiration Highlight Mormon Latino Devotional

 
Choir sings at this year’s annual Latino devotional, “En la Luz de Su Amor” (“In the Light of His Love”)

 

Spanish-speaking members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints enjoyed this year’s annual Latino devotional, “En la Luz de Su Amor” (“In the Light of His Love”). Elder Claudio D. Zivic of the Seventy, a native of Argentina, and Elder Gary B. Doxey, of the Seventy, shared uplifting messages associated with the conference’s theme, and a large choir provided beautiful music sung in Spanish.

As in past years, thousands of Spanish-speaking members from the community gathered for the event held at the Conference Center at Temple Square.

“We have a large Latino community in and around Utah with a rich heritage,” said Loren Ashcraft, a senior producer for Latino events in Utah. “Our goal is to bring the regional Latino community together for an evening of music and inspirational messages.”

This year, Spanish-speaking members outside of Utah were also able to enjoy the annual event. For the first time a live broadcast of the devotional was delivered via satellite to congregations across the United States, Mexico, Canada and Central and South America. The full devotional is also available online for download on the Church’s website.
