Elder Ulisses Soares Reflects on Recent Visit to South Pacific

Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently posted on his Instagram account some reflections on his recent visit to Tonga. 

"What a blessing it is for me to meet so many wonderful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe," Elder Soares wrote.

"Rosana and I recently visited with members of the Church and friends of other faiths in the Pacific area. I wanted to share a few experiences from Tonga that were particularly special to us.

"In a marvelous cultural celebration, the youth of Tonga shared their faith through traditional singing and dancing. The theme of these performances was the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Their belief and dedication to our Savior was evident."
