Numerous Temple Updates Provided

Hello again, everyone! Given that a number of temple updates have been brought to my attention, I wanted to post again now to share them in sum and total. First of all, after not having an update on the Abidjan Côte d'Ivoire Temple since mid-November of last year, it has been reported that its' foundation is nearing completion. Next, as previously noted, work began in earnest on the Pocatello Idaho Temple today, as site clearing and rough grading is underway. So that temple was in a "Construction pending" status for only around 48 hours after its' groundbreaking.

Last week, surplus items from the Yigo chapel were being sold. With the completion of that surplus sale, that chapel is now being prepared for demolition. And the final two updates I have are on temples undergoing renovation. At the Memphis Tennessee Temple, entrance doors have been installed, and, as noted earlier, open house reservations are now available for that temple (with such reservations being accepted through Saturday April 20, which will mark the last day of that open house).

Meanwhile, on the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple, entrance sconces are being installed, while the exterior lighting is now operational. As noted elsewhere on this blog earlier today, reservations for that temple's open house will be available from today through Wednesday May 1, which will coincide with the last day of such tours. I do continue to monitor any and all Church news and temple developments, and will do my level best to pass word of those along to you all as I receive it.

A Couple of Items of Blog Business

Hello again, everyone! I wanted to take an opportunity to briefly transact some blog business. First, after a lot more research and some experimentation, I have again made alterations to the layout of this blog. Based on the results I see with the latest alterations, or on the feedback any of you might choose to provide about them, further adjustments may be necessary over the next little while. So I'd like to thank you all for your ongoing patience while I continue to experiment in this regard.

In the meantime, I made the determination earlier today that I could be more effective in presenting the progress of temple construction during the year if I were to post my full report once every quarter-year. With that in mind, I will be posting a comparative look at temple progress as it was at the beginning of this year to what it will look like at the end of March, either in the late night hours of March 31, or at my first opportunity to do so on April 1. So stay tuned for the post on that at that time.
