HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"We know that Elijah did return—at least twice—after Malachi's promise.…At the Kirtland Temple, April 3, 1836, Elijah appeared to the Prophet and Oliver Cowdery and said, 'The keys of this dispensation are committed into your hands.'"
—Russell M. Nelson

Walls Rising for the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple

Concrete laborers at the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple are moving swiftly to erect the structural walls of the temple, beginning with the foundation and moving to the main floor. The second floor and a central tower are yet to be built. Plenty of work remains below grade around the foundation of the temple, including the construction of underground water cisterns and a parking garage.

Cladding of the St. George Utah Temple Annex Begins

White stone panels were hoisted by crane yesterday and attached to the exterior of the newly constructed annex of the St. George Utah Temple. The structure will beautifully complement the temple proper and serve as the main entrance to the building. The interior will be finished in dark hardwood floors and white moldings with arched windows and doorways and Victorian-style fixtures and furnishings—true to the design aesthetic of the late 19th century when the temple was originally constructed.

Phase 2 Reopenings Continue Next Monday

On Monday, October 5, the following four temples will move from Phase 1 to Phase 2 of reopening: the Asunción Paraguay Temple, the Córdoba Argentina Temple, the Kona Hawaii Temple, and the Laie Hawaii Temple. This brings the total number of temples in Phase 2 to 107. The Santiago Chile Temple will begin Phase 1 of reopening on the same day.
