Watch Elder and Sister Soares at RootsTech 2022 Family Discovery Day

Quoting from an email announcement from RootsTech 2022:

Elder Ulisses Soares, an apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his wife Rosana, will be the featured keynote speakers at Family Discovery Day during RootsTech 2022 (March 3–5, 2022). Family Discovery Day is a free, all virtual event.

Part of the Soares’s message will originate from their homeland of Brazil, where they have deep roots. Both were born in São Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, and both will draw from and share their family experiences on-location.

“Family history isn’t all about the distant past,” says Elder Soares. “You can look to your own recent experiences and stories or history as it unfolds right here in the present. You can establish your own traditions. It is a combination of the past and the present that makes you uniquely you.”

As a special witness of the Savior Jesus Christ, Elder Soares says culture, heritage, and traditions, along with life experiences, help people understand who they are, but this is only part of their identity.

“You cannot fully understand the breadth of who you are without understanding whose you are! Do you understand that you are literally a child of God? Have you discovered what that divine heritage means for you?”
