Cultural Event

The three areas of the Church in Utah will present a special Latino youth and young adult cultural event titled “Luz de las naciones: Juventud de la promesa” in the Conference Center on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, October 22, 23, and 24, 2015, at 8:00 p.m.

David Archuleta will be the featured guest artist. The program will also include a youth and young adult choir, musicians, and dance groups performing a variety of contemporary and traditional dances from Latin America.

The presentation will be in Spanish with a limited number of headsets available on a first-come, first-served basis for those who speak English or Portuguese.

Members are encouraged to bring their friends and relatives. Ward mission leaders can use this free event as a member-missionary outreach opportunity.

Sunday Devotional

There will also be a religious devotional in Spanish in the Conference Center at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 25. Elder D. Todd Christofferson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, will preside and speak. David Archuleta will also share a message. The devotional is a separate ticketed event from the cultural event.
