Video: Why Elder Soares says, ‘We all need God’

Ministering in South America, Elder Ulisses Soares encouraged people to keep God in their hearts

During his recent 11-day ministry to Chile, Uruguay and Argentina, Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught that people need to have God in their hearts. 

“We all need God regardless of our life’s condition,” he said. 

But he said he is concerned that people fill their hearts and lives with other things that cannot bring the joy and peace the Savior can provide. 

This Church News video, titled “We All Need God,” features photos of Elder Soares from his ministry in Santiago, Chile; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina. The audio includes Elder Soares — a native Portuguese speaker — sharing his thoughts in Spanish about the blessings that come from keeping God in their hearts as part of their spiritual foundations.
