HOLINESS TO THE LORD

Main Floor Slab in Place for the Fort Worth Texas Temple

The main floor slab for the Fort Worth Texas Temple has been poured and cured, except for the portion over the basement. Floor joists will be installed around the opening for the baptismal font, which will transfer the weight of the floor to the load-bearing basement walls. It is the second temple to be built in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. A third temple, slated for the McKinney suburb of Fairview, is facing opposition from local residents.

Spring Flowers at the Grand Junction Colorado Temple

Spring flowers are abloom around the Grand Junction Colorado Temple construction site. Scaffolding has been fully removed from the completed stone exterior, and the installation of stained glass continues. The warmer weather is bringing an acceleration to the landscaping efforts on the grounds of Colorado's third temple. A fourth temple has been announced for the state for the city of Colorado Springs.

In the accompanying photograph, the operator of the machine surveys the progress and determines his next steps. The iconic panels that once surrounded the upper floors have been completely removed, and the east and west sides are gone, leaving just the core of the upper structure on top of the remaining ground floor.
