Scaffolding Returns to Concepcion Chile Temple

Hello again, everyone! Having passed along earlier today those resources regarding the open house for the Jordan River Utah Temple, I also wanted to post and pass along some information that has been reported for the Concepcion Chile Temple. Up until now, there has been a lantern in the temple that was without a window, an uncovered cupola, and only a placeholder instead of the angel Moroni.

All of that will soon change. Scaffolding has gone up for the steeple and cupola, and if current plans hold, the remainder of this week will see progress made on all that has, up to now, been left undone. It is exciting to think of the developments that may soon occur as this temple gets ever closer to its dedication, which is, as previously noted, set for about 7.5 months from now.

You can rest assured I will be monitoring all temple-related developments and will be passing those along to you as I learn 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.

VIP/Media Tours Underway for Jordan River Utah Temple; Public Tours Begin Friday

Hello again, everyone! I had started this post yesterday but had not been able to finish it before now. I am pleased to be able to report that VIP/Media tours began yesterday for the Jordan River Utah Temple, and that public open house tours will follow starting Friday.

In relation to all of that, there have been several wonderful resources published, and the rest of this post will overview those resources. First, we have this Church News article, highlighting this temple's history and detailing what the renovation process involved, in addition to sharing some quotes from Church leaders involved with managing the temples of the Church.

Next, for those living in Utah or surrounding regions that are interested, the Church has provided a link to their online reservation system. For those interested in seeing the temple who may not be able to make it to the open house, a virtual tour is a great option.

And finally, from Mormon Newsroom, those interested in doing so can find additional information and images. It is wonderful to see so many great resources about this temple. As I may have mentioned previously, President Kimball attended the original dedication of this temple, but at his request, President Romney read the prayer, which is why this temple is the one temple in the Church that is listed as having been dedicated by President Romney.

And, as also previously noted, since this is the first major temple-related event of President Nelson's administration (aside from the private rededication for the Houston Texas Temple, which, as noted, will be done by President M. Russell Ballard), it seems logical to assume President Nelson himself will preside at this rededication.

It also seems safe and logical to assume that since this temple is in the Salt Lake Valley, several other Church leaders will also be in attendance. Whatever might occur in that regard, you can find a report of it here.

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.
