Additional Church News Reported

Hello again, everyone! A few more important Church news stories have come to my attention in the last half hour or so, and I couldn't wait to share those with you all. First, the News & Events page on the Church's official website shares these highlights of a presentation given by Elder and Sister Dale G. and Ruth L. Renlund at the Seminar for New Mission Leadership. They focused that presentation on the what, why, and how of developing Christlike attributes. That article is well worthy of your attention.

Turning now to the Church News, this article shares more details about the video featuring Elder Soares which I shared in my previous post. Meanwhile, missionaries serving in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission recently marched in the Monument Hill Kiwanis Parade, which marked the first time they were invited to participate. You can find more on that in this report

And finally, the Church News continued their series entitled: "This Week on Social". In this week's edition, messages from Church leaders highlight and underscore God's love for all of His children, and shared counsel regarding the ongoing implementation of the Church's "ministering" program.

It is interesting to see Church news being reported and published on a larger scale than we have seen previously. I continue to monitor all such developments and will do my level best to continue to bring those to you all here as I learn of them.

Miscellaneous Church & Temple News Reported

Hello again, everyone! This post will serve as a way to share some Church and temple news which has been reported today via various outlets. So let's get right into all of that. We begin with this Church News report on the address given by President M. Russell Ballard during the Seminar for New Mission Presidents. The Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles described 7 steps whereby the new mission leaders can get the ball rolling in their ministry. He drew on extensive experiences that both he and his ancestors had in their ministries. The article is well worthy of your attention.

Next, a temple update. A new video posted on the LDS Church Temples Facebook page shows progress that has been made on the construction of the Lisbon Portugal Temple, where progress is being made on the interior framework. As far as I know, the last general estimate offered for this temple's completion (mid-2019) has not changed. With that in mind, this temple could be dedicated anytime between August and October next year, but perhaps in the earlier part of that estimate.

We conclude with some additional apostolic news. A new video has been posted which features junior apostle Elder Ulisses Soares discussing the need for kindness and acceptance. And the Church has also announced a regional Face-to-Face event originating from the Philippines for youth in Asia. Elder Gary E. Stevenson and his wife Lesa will be the featured Church leaders at this event, which you can read more about here. Interestingly enough, this event is set to be held on August 11, 5 days after Elder Stevenson's 63rd birthday.

I continue to monitor all Church and temple news and developments, and will do my level best to bring word of those to you as I become aware of them. That does it for this post.
