Raising the Angel Moroni on the Sapporo Japan Temple Was a Miracle for This Crane Operator

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

A new video has been released from a Japanese news source telling the story of Brother Masayuki Ota, an LDS crane operator who prayed for 15 years to have the chance to help in the construction of a temple in Sapporo, should one ever be built. Now, he is sharing the blessing it was to lift the angel statue of Moroni on top of the Sapporo Japan Temple this past month.

“When I saw the Statue of Moroni being placed on the Fukuoka Temple, I told my family that I would love to do it – as the Crane Operator. They told me that we will have a Sapporo Temple someday for sure. So let’s pray about it – that I can do it. To get involved with the Sapporo Temple construction project is a miracle for me and my family,” said Ota in an interview.

The video has no subtitles or dubbing, but a transcript with screenshots is available in English below. (Read the left row down, then to the top of the right row down on each page.)
