Steeple Progress & Apostolic Visit to DRC

Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles presided at a young single adult fireside at the stake center next to the Kinshasa DRC Temple. Photos of the event, attended by over 1,400 people, show the temple in the background. The cladding of the temple steeple is progressing.


Massive Storms in South Africa

Devastating storms swept through the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, the location of the Durban South Africa Temple, last week. Fortunately, the temple grounds and landscaping were able to survive the storm untouched, despite heavy rains and 70km per hour winds.


Boston Temple Address Change

The Frontage Road address of the Boston Massachusetts Temple, which created confusion for out-of-town patrons, has been changed. Patrons using GPS to find the temple would be led to South Boston instead of Belmont. To rectify the situation, Belmont civic leaders have agreed to rename the street Hinckley Street.
