Spanish-speaking members and their friends are invited to attend a special Latino devotional titled “En la luz de Su amor” (“In the Light of His Love”) on Sunday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Center on Temple Square.

The devotional will also be broadcast live to those who live too far from the Conference Center to attend.

Speakers at the devotional include Elder Claudio D. Zivic of the Seventy and Elder Gary B. Doxey, an Area Seventy, who will share messages focused on the “Light of His Love” theme. A special 365-voice regional Latino choir, composed of youth and adults, will provide the music. Prelude music will include a beautiful children’s choir arrangement of “My Heavenly Father Loves Me.”

Event organizers are pleased to announce that tickets will not be required, making the devotional more easily accessible to those who wish to attend in person.

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

Seats at the Conference Center will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The event will also be streamed on the Internet and via satellite broadcast. The broadcast will available to stake centers located north of Brigham City and south of Santaquin in Utah, to stake centers throughout the intermountain region of the United States, and to stake centers in Pacific Coast states, and to meetinghouses in Latin America, upon request.

Members who live along the Wasatch Front from Brigham City to Santaquin are encouraged to attend the event live in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City.

Each year, the Church has provided inspirational events focused on the growing Latino community in the region. Now in its eighth year, this initiative has included Christmas concerts, devotionals, and stage plays, including last year’s first-ever Spanish-language version of Savior of the World in the Conference Center Theater.
