Festival of Lights Begins at the Washington D.C. Temple
"As we turn the lights on to illuminate these beautiful grounds, I want everyone to know that I believe with all my heart and soul that Jesus Christ came to earth to be the light in the world," said Elder Dale G. Renlund of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles at the lighting of the 2023 Washington D.C. Temple Festival of Lights. He was joined by the Philippines Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission Mr. Jaime Ramon T. Ascalon, Jr. In addition to seeing more than 400,000 Christmas lights, visitors will see Nativity créches, international Christmas tree decorations, and nightly holiday performances. Entrance and parking are free, and no tickets are required.
A Wintery Day at the Lindon Utah Temple
Blankets of snow have settled over the foothills and grounds surrounding the Lindon Utah Temple. On the west side of the building, granite cladding has reached the top of the main level, and on the east side, cladding has begun along the base. Sheathing of the north portico and framing of the south portico have been completed. Window frame installation is progressing in the rectangular openings.
Curbing Installed at the Willamette Valley Oregon Temple Site
Hardscape installation has begun at the Willamette Valley Oregon Temple site where concrete curbing for the parking areas has been poured and cured. The main floor walls for the temple have been formed, and the upper walls will soon follow, rising from the center of the building. The joints in the insulated concrete forms are being sealed, leaving a brick pattern of dark lines.
Enclosing the Ephraim Utah Temple
With winter fast approaching, glass is being installed in the window openings of the Ephraim Utah Temple to enclose the structure and allow work to progress on the interior. Sheathing boards continue to be attached to the exterior studs, and a dark sealant is being applied. Materials are being staged on the roof where they are more accessible to the crews. Work has begun on manufacturing the domes that will top the steeples.
