contention

The prevalence of a spirit of contention amongst a people is a certain sign of deadness with respect to the things of religion. When men's spirits are hot with contention, they are cold to religion. - Jonathan Edwards

Temple in Rio

In May Elder Stevenson will dedicate the temple in Rio de Janiero.

When we were in Rio a few years ago, we were surprised that there was no temple there. It's a fabulous, and enormous, city. It's wonderful to see the temple there, with the dedication coming after two years of delay due to covid.

While we were in Brazil on that trip, we visited the temple in Manaus. It's located on the Amazon river, which is pretty cool. 



Some time ago I spent some time in Iquitos, Peru, on a filming project. Iquitos is also on the Amazon. There are many LDS there, so someday they'll probably get a temple, too.
