Abundant Nature Around the Anchorage Alaska Temple Site

The gorgeous natural setting of the Anchorage Alaska Temple was captured this weekend with a stunning backdrop of dense trees and the white-capped Chugach Mountains. In the foreground is the excavation for the basement of the new temple building that will replace the current building. It is currently the only dedicated temple in the Last Frontier State, but plans have been announced for a second temple in Fairbanks.

Exterior Stonework at the Rear of the Bahía Blanca Argentina Temple

Scaffolding has come down from the rear side of the Bahía Blanca Argentina Temple, revealing the beautiful two-toned stonework that decorates the exterior walls. A gray-colored course runs along the base of the building while a lighter cream-colored stone is used for the rest of the temple. The brick and stucco exterior of the ancillary building is nearing completion, and work is progressing on the interior.

Applying a Moisture Barrier to the Managua Nicaragua Temple

A moisture barrier is being applied to the structural walls of the Managua Nicaragua Temple ahead of exterior cladding. Framing has also been added for the pilasters between the archways in the front portico. There are currently six dedicated temples in Central America. The seventh will be dedicated next month, and work is wrapping up on the eighth. Construction is actively underway on the ninth and tenth, while plans have been announced for the eleventh and twelfth.

Mural Added to the Willamette Valley Oregon Temple Site

Visitors to the Willamette Valley Oregon Temple site are now greeted by a cheerful mural that has been painted on the side of a storage container across from the visitors' trailer. A local sister service missionary, who is an aspiring muralist, noticed the poor appearance of the container and used her talents to make it into something beautiful. Visitors are warmly welcomed at the construction site from 1:00–4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays; and from 2:00–5:00 p.m. on Sundays.
