LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Arched Entrance to the Praia Cabo Verde Temple

A high rounded arch can be seen on the facade of the Praia Cabo Verde Temple, which will hold the inscription stone that designates the temple as the House of the Lord. The cutout for the cornerstone is also visible on the west side of the entrance closer to the ground. The building's structural walls are in place, but work continues on the tower and on the exterior walls for the two wings of the meetinghouse.

Tokyo Japan Temple Monument Sign

Stone monument signs have been installed on the grounds of the Tokyo Japan Temple and annex building. The bilingual markers feature large Japanese lettering with small English translations. The annex building is described as a meetinghouse, an office for the Asia North Area, and a patron facility. The rock-faced garden areas around the temple are filling in with green plants and trees.

A Thank You to the Yigo Guam Temple Crew

On Friday, October 16, missionaries of the Micronesia Guam Mission shared their appreciation to the workers at the Yigo Guam Temple in the form of chilled sports drinks, handing them bottles as they left the construction site. Scaffolding remains on the front side of the temple while work is well underway on building the exterior walls for the meetinghouse behind the temple.

The Urdaneta Philippines Temple: a Temple for Northern Luzon

As a gateway to the northern Philippines, the City of Urdaneta sits at the junction of several major highways in the province of Pangasinan, home to nearly 3 million residents. The Urdaneta Philippines Temple stands directly on one of those highways, providing good access to Church members living in Northern Luzon. The concrete forms around the upper walls of the temple have been removed, but the crew continues to pour the exterior walls for the accommodation center.
