Summer Break Concludes in Africa

Crews have returned to the Durban South Africa Temple site following their annual summer break. Work has resumed on attaching and waterproofing plywood decking on the temple and missionary housing facility. This layer will provide protection to the buildings from high humidity.


Construction Barrier in Raleigh

The Raleigh North Carolina Temple has already entered full construction mode following its closing last week. A temporary fence, trailers, and heavy equipment are new features on the temple grounds. Some trees are being fenced off for protection while other vegetation on the grounds is being cleared.
