HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"The temple is a point of intersection between heaven and earth. In this sacred place, holy work will be performed through selfless service and love. The temple reminds me of all that is good and beautiful in the world."
—David A. Bednar

President Eyring Rededicates the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple

"Don’t forget that our ancestors are real," said President Henry B. Eyring, second counselor in the First Presidency, at the rededication of the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple. "They are waiting and when we do their [temple] work, the warm feeling [we feel] is the Spirit. That warm feeling will stay with you forever." The temple was rededicated following a renovation of the interior and exterior that altered the appearance of the temple and made numerous improvements.

Mesa Arizona Temple Landscaping Structures

A retaining wall has been poured around the northwest corner of the Mesa Arizona Temple, and forms are in the place for the southwest corner while footings are visible for the southeast corner. A grid of rebar has been set for the concrete slab for the north reflection pool. Trees that had been transplanted from the original landscaping are being reincorporated into the grounds as new trees continue to appear. Work has begun on altering and expanding the parking area.

Monument Sign Installed at Lisbon Portugal Temple

Three stones inscribed with the name of the Church and the name of the temple have been attached to the concrete sign holder incorporated into the retaining wall system around the Lisbon Portugal Temple. Landscaping and interior finish work continues. The public will be invited to tour the new facility at an open house beginning in three months.

Landscaping the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple Grounds

A handsome magnolia tree—a favorite of the South—will serve as the centerpiece of the beautiful grounds on the rear side of the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple. A wide variety of trees and shrubs are being delivered to the construction site for planting. Several stained-glass windows have been installed in the temple.
