Rafael E. Pino

First Quorum of the Seventy (April 5, 2008 – present)

General Conference Addresses

  • April 2015 General Conference
    • The Eternal Perspective of the Gospel
      • “It is interesting to note the sequence in the teaching process. Our Heavenly Father first taught Adam and Eve the plan of redemption, and then He gave them commandments. This is a great truth. Understanding the plan will help people keep the commandments, make better decisions, and have the right motivation.”
      • “Not knowing or disregarding “the dealings of … God” is one way of losing eternal perspective, and murmuring is just one of the symptoms.”
      • “The Lord knows what He wants to accomplish with each one of us. He knows the kind of reform He wants to achieve in our lives, and we do not have the right to counsel Him. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.”
  • April 2009 General Conference
    • Faith in Adversity
      • “Even when the pain of these families cannot be compared to the agony the Lord endured in Gethsemane, it has enabled me to better understand the Savior’s suffering and Atonement. There is no infirmity, affliction, or adversity that Christ did not feel in Gethsemane.”
      • “It is interesting to notice that the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew against both houses! Living the gospel does not mean that we will everlastingly escape adversity. Rather, it means that we will be prepared to face and endure adversity more confidently.”
