The ending chart was quite insightful.
When I was called to serve in Russia in 1998, we all heard the news about a
temple in the Ukraine and were very excited. It's a shame it took 12 years to
complete, but it was worth the wait! The faithful members in that area had to
sacrifice so much to travel to Sweden and Finland, and this will be a huge
blessing to them all.
This has been a terrible weekend of shootings and death and carnage, and now a
glimmer of light shines forth in the midst of it all. A temple has been
dedicated to our Lord and to our God. Now we know why evil has tried to make a
statement this weekend. “Every foundation stone that is laid for a Temple,
and every Temple completed … lessens the power of Satan on the earth, and
increases the power of God and Godliness.” May temples be dedicated in
ever increasing numbers in the years ahead.
Beautiful pictures. Beautiful setting. I'm certain the choir sang beautifully
as well. Isn't it great?!
