HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
—Malachi 4:5–6

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Waterproofing the Walls of the Praia Cabo Verde Temple

The concrete block walls of the Praia Cabo Verde Temple are being coated with a waterproofing sealant to protect the structure against the island's high humidity. In preparation for interior work, the window openings are being covered and the building is being enclosed. The concrete frame for the meetinghouse has been erected.

Sod Laid at the Mesa Arizona Temple Grounds

The once-dirt north lawn of the Mesa Arizona Temple has now been covered in strips of rich green grass. During the annual Easter Pageant, the lawn will be filled with chairs for the audience. Numerous flowers have been planted on the east side of the temple in the garden spaces where the palm trees stand. The renovation is expected to be completed early next year, but it is unknown when an open house may be held.

View of the Quito Ecuador Temple from a Nearby Roundabout

Standing on the hill next to the roundabout at the Quito Ecuador Temple offers a beautiful view of the temple site with the peaks of the Andes mountains creating a natural backdrop. Cladding of the exterior of the temple continues at various locations including around the walls of the spire. Ornamental details have been incorporated over the windows and in the portico.

Video of the Puebla Mexico Temple Site

Watch a video published last month of the beginning phases of construction of the Puebla Mexico Temple. With the help of a drone, video is captured of the excavation for the temple and a Church facility that will stand behind the temple. Construction trailers are parked in a staging area in front of the temple. Footage is also taken of the beautiful neighborhood that surrounds the site.
