Brazil is the largest country in South America. More than a million members of the Church live there.

Soon there will be 11 temples in Brazil! On page 10, you can read about a Brazilian boy’s first temple trip.

The main language spoken in Brazil is Portuguese. This is the Book of Mormon in Portuguese.

The Amazon River is the longest river in the world. And the Amazon rainforest is the biggest rainforest in the world! It’s home to many amazing animals, like this red-eyed tree frog.

Football (soccer) is the most popular sport in Brazil.

Meet some friends from Brazil!

I like going to church with my little sister and my parents. I feel the Savior’s love when I am with my family in sacrament meeting. I feel it when I am in Primary too. I know that Jesus lives and loves us.

Before my baptism, I was afraid of drowning because I could not swim. My father said I could trust Jesus to be with me. After that I felt great courage and knew I was not alone. The day of my baptism was one of the best days of my life.

Ana Luiza M., age 9, Paraná, Brazil
