Barranquilla Colombia Temple Workers #LightTheWorld

As part of the Light the World campaign, workers at the Barranquilla Colombia Temple site wrote inspiring Christmas messages on pieces of paper that were attached to helium-filled balloons and released into the air. The intention is to gift the unsuspecting recipient of a balloon with a message of light.

Construction is continuing forward. Decorative fencing is being placed and scaffolding around the tower is being removed.


Cupola Framework Installed in Brazil

The Fortaleza Brazil Temple reached new heights this past week. The steeple base is now topped by steel framework for the domed cupola. Workers continue to make progress on cladding the exterior walls.


Roofing Progress in Africa

Crews are laying roof decking at the Durban South Africa Temple site. Once the decking is complete the black waterproof sealant will be finalized. Backfilling of the foundation is nearly complete, and wall panels are being cast. Only a few more roof trusses remain to be set atop the missionary housing facility.

Progress in Portugal 

With main exterior walls complete, workers at the Lisbon Portugal Temple site are turning their attention to the roof slab and steeple base walls. They have placed rebar and concrete forms to assist in the process. The on-site meetinghouse is still covered in scaffolding and netting as exterior cladding continues.


Scaffolding Removed in Utah

The steeple of the Bountiful Utah Temple is fully visible again after scaffolding was removed this week. In this photograph, the low lying layer of inversion smog is visible to the left of the temple.
