Novo Templo Annunciado por Belém Brasil 03 Apr 2016
President Thomas S. Monson began his address in the Sunday morning session of the 186th Annual General Conference by announcing that in the coming months and years, four new temples will be built.

Their locations are Harare, Zimbabwe; Quito, Ecuador; Belém, Brazil; and a second temple in Lima, Peru.

Belém, Brazil

Nearly 1.3 million of Brazil’s 204 million people are members of the Church. Six operating temples (Campinas, Curitiba, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, and São Paulo) currently dot the country. Another temple is under construction in Fortaleza and two others are announced for Rio de Janeiro and now Belém.

Brazil, a federal republic with a Portuguese-speaking population, covers almost half the continent of South America.

The first known Church member in Brazil was Max Richard Zapf, who was baptized in Germany in August 1908 and immigrated to Brazil in 1913. After many years with no Church contact, Brother Zapf and his family learned that Augusta Kuhlmann Lippelt and her four children, who had also joined the Church in Germany before immigrating to Brazil in 1923, were living in the small southern Brazilian town of Ipomoea. Augusta's husband Roberto, although not a member when he moved his family to Brazil, was baptized several years later. The Zapf family soon relocated to be with their new friends, the Lippelt family. These two families represented the beginning of the Church's permanent presence in Brazil.

The president of the South American Mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina, first visited Brazil in 1927, and returned with the elders to begin missionary work in September 1928. A branch was organized in Joinville in 1930 and the first Church-owned meetinghouse in South America was dedicated a year later in Joinville.

A mission was created and headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 25, 1935. A Portuguese edition of the Book of Mormon was published in 1939.

In 1954, President David O. McKay became the first Church president to visit Brazil. At the end of the 1950s, membership totaled 3,700 and by the time the Sao Paulo Temple was dedicated in 1978 it had reached 54,000. After 1978, in part due to the revelation extending priesthood to all worthy males, Church growth became extraordinary. By 1990, membership exceeded 300,000 and as the 1990s ended, membership totaled more than 700,000.

The Brazil Area was created in August 1987. On February 2, 1986, with the creation of the Campinas Brazil Castelo Stake, Brazil became the third country outside the United States to have 50 stakes. When the Sao Leopoldo Brazil Stake was created December 5, 1993, Brazil reached 100 stakes, the second country outside the United States to do so.

In October 1993, construction began on Missionary Training Center in Sao Paulo, the Church's second largest MTC. The seven-story building, capable of accommodating 750 missionaries, was dedicated May 18, 1997, by Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. In October 1998, North American missionaries called to Brazil began receiving nearly half of their training at the Brazil Missionary Training Center. The program to send North American missionaries to Brazil for four weeks of training enabled them to be immersed in the Brazilian culture and Portuguese language in a controlled environment.

The program was so successful that in April 2000 the first 22 North American missionaries were sent to Brazil for their full eight weeks of training.

The Sao Paulo Stake, the first in South America, was organized on May 1, 1966. Ten years later, Brazil had 10 stakes, and a temple had been announced for Sao Paulo. President Spencer W. Kimball presided over a cornerstone ceremony for the temple on March 9, 1977. The temple was dedicated Oct. 30, 1978. President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Recife Brazil Temple on December 15, 2000. While President James E. Faust, second counselor in the First Presidency attended the groundbreaking of the Porto Alegre Temple, he also was made an honorary citizen of Sao Paulo, in recognition of his lifelong ties to that city and to Brazil, where he served as a missionary. President Hinckley dedicated the Recife Brazil Temple on December 15, 2000; the Porto Alegre Brazil Temple on December 17, 2000, and the Campinas Brazil Temple on May 17, 2002. President Thomas S. Monson dedicated the Curitiba Brazil Temple on June 1, 2008. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf dedicated the Manaus Brazil Temple on June 12, 2012.

Sealed Together The Manaus Temple Caravan 19 May 2015
Artigo e video sobre as caravanas para o Templo de Sao Paulo e os membros de Amazonas/ Manaus.

https://history.lds.org/article/manaus-brazil-temple-caravan?lang=eng

n the 1990s, Church members in Manaus, Brazil, were 4,000 kilometers from the nearest temple, which was in São Paulo. The rain forest, half the length of the Amazon, and most of the Brazilian coast lay in between, and yet their leaders dreamed of helping as many Saints as possible reach the temple. In 1992, they planned a six-day caravan by boat and bus that would make the dream of reaching the temple a reality for many.

In the temple, the Saints were sealed to their families and ancestors. Through the journey, they also developed spiritual strength and unity that laid a foundation for the future growth of the Church in Manaus.

Mormon Helping Hands Revitalizes State School in M 04 Feb 2012
Mormon Helping Hands Revitalizes State School in Macapá, Brazil

By Michelle Sá, Macapá Brazil Amapá District public affairs, with contributions from Melissa Merrill, Church News and Events

3 February 2012

Fifty Mormon Helping Hands volunteers worked on Saturday, January 21, 2012, to clean, weed, and revitalize the state school Ivone Maria Menezes in Macapá, Brazil.

Article Highlights

Fifty volunteers—including members, friends, and missionaries of the Church—participated in the project.
This project was one of several Mormon Helping Hands efforts in the Brazilian state of Amapá. The projects are organized to help build communities and demonstrate Church members’ commitment to follow Jesus Christ.

Approximately 50 Mormon Helping Hands volunteers—including members of the Church, their friends, and Latter-day Saint missionaries missionaries—mobilized on Saturday, January 21, 2012, to help clean, weed, and otherwise revitalize Ivone Maria Menezes, a state school in Macapá, Brazil.

The activity, coordinated by the school board and organized by the Macapá Brazil Amapá District’s public affairs director, Kleber Sainz, drew attention and coverage from several local media outlets. In addition, the school’s director, Adelia Danin, was receptive to and assisted in the project. “We were delighted with the generous contribution [the Church] gave us,” she said. “We will always keep the memory of it with us.”

Mormon Helping Hands volunteer work is continuing throughout the Brazilian state of Amapá. These efforts exist as a way for members of the Church to improve the communities in which they live and to demonstrate that they wish to follow in the footsteps of the Savior Jesus Christ, who “went about doing good” (Acts 10:38).

“The Church in Amapá hasn’t been the same since the actions of Helping Hands began,” said Michelle Sá, who serves in Church public affairs in the district. “To see the love and devotion of families, youth, and children all united, reaching out to those who need help, is very rewarding.”

Those changes Sister Sá described are affecting missionary work too. “Through Helping Hands, people are able to associate very easily the name of the Church with the program,” said José C. F. Campos, president of the Brazil Belém Mission. “The activities are publicized by the media, so when the missionaries talk to people about the Church, the people tell them that they are already familiar with the Church because they saw on television the activities that Church members made possible.”

This, he said, generally leads people to having higher confidence in the missionaries and in their message, and that in turn has improved the image of the Church among government officials, media representatives, public and private entities, and private citizens. “The people have a positive image of us, and they gladly receive us into their homes,” President Campos said.

Mormon Helping Hands has become so well known, he added, that it has become a “trademark” of service. Latter-day Saints have become known for being able to mobilize quickly and recruit volunteers to attend to any community need.

“Actions are much more powerful than even thousands of words in vain,” he added. “Through our example we can demonstrate that we are willing to serve our community. And, as King Benjamin taught, ‘When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God’ (Mosiah 2:17).”

Kleber Sainz, who serves as director of Church public affairs for the district, invited those who have not participated in Mormon Helping Hands to do so. “The feeling is very good,” he said. “Come! Feel the joy and the love. It’s wonderful. Our hearts are glad to participate and to see people happy.”
