    “Surely the reason Christ said, ‘Father, forgive them,’ was because even in that terrible hour He knew that this was the message He had come through all eternity to deliver.”
    —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Faith in His Step and a Song in His Heart

The Ensign has a reminder of just what it takes to be a member of the Church in some parts of the world. In “Faith in His Step and a Song in His Heart” you can read about Brother Paulo Tvuarde of southern Brazil. He is a farmer who walks about 40 kilometers to church every week, unless the mud is so thick that he can’t make it. As the article says, “If Paulo attended church three out of every four Sundays, then he spent more than 300 hours walking nearly 1,600 kilometers (1,000 mi) each year just to attend church!”

It’s always great to read about people who are doing extraordinary things for the sake of Jesus Christ, His gospel, and His Church. Brother Tvuarde has a marvelous attitude and even does missionary work while plowing his fields. Read the article, and then think about complaining about the lack of good parking spaces at your meetinghouse.
