Minor Temple Updates (Including a status change for the Kinshasa DR Congo Temple)

Hello, everyone! As I previously mentioned, a new tradition on this blog will be brief updates relating to temple construction progress. In that regard, there are a couple of great things to report.. Let's get right into those details.

First of all, I have mentioned previously on this blog that I have been tracking the amount of time the Church has between the current date and Saturday April 6, 2030, when the Church will mark the 200th anniversary of its restoration. I have offered my opinion previously that the Church could easily have a minimum of 200 operating temples by that time. All it would take is for the Church to announce 18 additional temples and complete the other 25 in various stages. There are 12.47 years between now and then, which means the Church could easily have those 200 temples if 3 or 4 are dedicated per year within that time.

Additionally, as previously mentioned on this blog, we know that the open house for the Meridian Idaho Temple is set to begin this Saturday, and that the open house for the Cedar City Utah Temple will start a week from this Friday. Additionally, we also know that the groundbreaking for the Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple is set to take place ten days from now.

I also learned today that Elder David A. Bednar, who has been traveling in the Africa Southeast Area conducting an area review, has visited the Kinshasa Democratic Republic of the Congo Temple,  where the steeple is being cladded and where roof shingles are being laid.

Aside from these updates, there has been no notable temple progress to report. Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time. May the Lord be with and bless you all until my next post. Until that time, I wish you all the best.


PDF of the November 2017 Ensign is finally available

Hello, everyone! I am pleased to report that I found out earlier today that the PDF version of the November 2017 Ensign is finally available on the Church's website. I am still going over it as time allows, and will post within the next couple of days about how the table of contents I put together compares with what that actually looks like. In the meantime, any comments are welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time, and may the Lord be with you all until my next post. Until that time, I wish you all the best.
