Additional Temple Updates Reported

Hello again, everyone! A number of new temple developments have been reported within the last 12 hours or less. So let's get right into talking about those. First, the last time we had an update on the Abidjan Côte d'Ivoire Temple was almost four months ago, on November 17, 2018, at which time we learned that construction poles were being installed. Today, a new report shows that the construction barrier has been erected around the temple site, which is a major step setting the stage for the construction of the temple to officially begin.

We turn now to a couple of the temples that have a groundbreaking scheduled. At the Pocatello Idaho Temple site, a groundbreaking tent has been set up in preparation for the groundbreaking ceremony, which, as we know, is scheduled to occur this upcoming Saturday March 16 at 11:00 AM.

Barring anything unexpected occurring, I would anticipate that construction will be able to begin for that temple within the week following the groundbreaking ceremony. In the meantime, surplus items from the Yigo Guam chapel are being sold today and tomorrow in order to clear that chapel out before it is demolished.

And I have one other update to report by way of progress on the Raleigh North Carolina Temple renovation process. That temple's latest status update still notes that stone cladding has been completed, but also provides new updates indicating that decorative fencing has been delivered, and that landscaping is underway.

Given the fact that 1 new temple will be dedicated and 1 temple currently undergoing renovation will be rededicated in June, I stand by my earlier offered assessment that the rededication of the Raleigh Temple will likely be announced within the next month or two, but set to occur at some point in August, following the conclusion of the annual July recess for the General Authorities.

Additionally, I should note that, because of the many unexpected temple-related announcements we have seen within the last several months, I am anticipating a few more of those in the not-too-distant future. I do continue to monitor any and all Church news in addition to all temple developments and will do my level best to bring word of those to you all here as I receive it.
