Steeple Scaffolding in Chile

New scaffolding stands above the Concepción Chile Temple, signaling that the structure’s steeple will soon be complete. The steeple has remained mostly unfinished for months, with a windowless lantern, uncovered cupola, and Moroni stand-in. Crews will be completing the unfinished parts and replacing the temporary Moroni with a gold-leafed permanent one shortly. The temple is set to be dedicated on  Sunday 28 October 2018.
