Concepcion Chile Temple Reaches Another Milestone Towards Its' Completion

Hello again, everyone! I am posting again today with another reported update on the Concepcion Chile Temple, which is getting ever closer to its' completion. New information of which I became aware just a short while ago indicates that the plastic sheeting has been removed from the decorative fencing which has been installed around the grounds of the temple. Landscaping and interior work also continues to make progress. And it appears preparations are also underway to finish installing the monument sign that many temples feature on their grounds.

This report is significant. As previously noted, from what I can ascertain, the dedication of this temple has been anticipated for a while to take place sometime in the latter half of this year. Since July is the typical month in which the general Church leadership takes their annual recess, it seems most likely that this temple's dedication could be set for mid-August of this year.

While no additional updates have been reported on the construction of any other new temples or those undergoing the renovation process, I did want to note that, as of today, the Church has 12.1 years in which to finish the construction of the 23 temples in various phases and to announce and complete 18 others, which would result in at leat 200 temples being in operation by the 200th anniversary of the reestablishment of the Church. Whether or not an official goal is made to do so, I think the Church may reach and very easily exceed that number in the near future.

And that is especially true in light of a few temples that may be able to have a groundbreaking set in the near future. As I have noted previously, my research  points to the idea that the next two years could be significant ones, not just for temple groundbreakings and dedications, but also particularly for temple announcements. I am keeping my eyes open for all temple updates and will bring those to you as I become aware 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.
