Statement from Valdeci Machado about the excommunication of Mauricio Berger.

"I declare to whom it may concern, submissive to the will of our Heavenly Father and His laws, that I met my dear friend and servant of our Lord Jesus Christ, Brother Maurício Berger, in a very troubled time of our lives. Great challenges were happening, the opposition persisted strongly, because of what would soon happen to all of us.

I met Mauricio when I was still a member of the LDS, I served on the high council of the stake, I was moved by how he knew the scriptures and the way he treated people, wise man, docile, and permanently willing to share the knowledge of the Holy Scriptures. This is what brought me to him. I know you for being member of the disciplinary council responsible for your excommunication in 2009 (see below). My name is in this document. Since 2008 he has explicitly stated his desire not to be part of the LDS church records anymore. I still have in my mind his majestic, straight and irreproachable countenance before that unjust disciplinary council. It is important to say that despite being an isolated voice in favor of Mauricio, to have made his defense, I still lifted my hand cowardly to support the council's decision. Time passed, and I realized the mistake I had made.

Being instructed by him, and having several confirmations through the Holy Spirit of all his sacred experiences, I then decided to depart from the LDS Church. Since then, we have lived many spiritual experiences together, Mauricio, Joni, I, and a little further on, Brother Wagner. I know, with the conviction that takes my soul and my mind completely, that Mauricio will translate the sealed portion that was once in the possession of Joseph Smith Jr, and that in due time of Lord, Zion will be redeemed.

I testify, and declare all this in the name of our Savior and Redeemer Jesus the Christ."

This work is the "refreshing" of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in these last days brought first through Joseph Smith Jr and comes again through Maurício Berger. This website will post truth irrespective of its conduit. "All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it, to act for itself, as all intelligence also, otherwise there is no existence"  D&C 90:5b RLDS or D&C 93:30 LDS.  Therefore,  postings on this website should be viewed as the endorsement of truth—speaking generally and not specifically for each word, action, person or organization. "And righteousness and truth will I cause to sweep the earth as with a flood, to gather out mine own elect from the four quarters of the earth, unto a place which I shall prepare; an holy city, that my people may gird up their loins, and be looking forth for the time of my coming; for there shall be my tabernacle, and it shall be called Zion; a New Jerusalem." Genesis 7:70
