Additional Temple Updates

Hello again, everyone! I am pleased to post today to share some updates on the status of several temples, both new ones that are undergoing the construction process and one temple undergoing renovation as well. So let's get right into all of that.

We start first with the Rome Italy Temple, which had a slight but still significant update on its' status. The latest information I have found shows that landscaping and interior work continues. The new part of that temple's updated status shows that part of that interior work is the installation of more art glass.

Based on that update,  I feel confident that those construction workers on this project were not far off in their assertion that this temple could be finished in enough time to be dedicated in October. But I will keep my eyes open for news in that regard, and will pass along any updates to that prospect as I find out about them.

Moving on now to the Lisbon Portugal Temple, mid-section steeple walls have reportedly been poured, and a netting for the scaffolding of the temple has been attached. This update gives me hope that perhaps this temple could (and likely will) be completed more towards the earlier side than the later side of its' completion estimate (mid-2019 rather than late 2019).

The final update I wanted to pass along relates to the renovation process for the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple that is making steady progress. The newest information I have found shows that construction efforts have turned to the entrance lobby, which is being framed.

As I have repeatedly observed in other posts on this blog, it is great to see the day-to-day updates that are provided for temples everywhere. The subject of that progress is close to my heart, not just because of my time serving as a temple worker, but because the construction of temples is a very important part of Church history. And I will continue to keep my eyes open for all developments in that regard and will post them here as soon as I can after learning of them.

That does it for this post. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time. Until my next post, I wish each one of you all the best and pray that the Lord will bless you all in everything you do.
