Temples!

General Conference was wonderful this past weekend. I am so grateful for the knowledge that God loves us and that He gives us guidance through a living Prophet on the earth when we need it so badly. I was happy to hear the announcement of five new temples! It truly shows that the work of the Lord is moving forward. What a blessing for the people in those areas to have a temple closer. I am grateful that we have a temple close here in Portland. The blessings of the temple are real and we are blessed as we attend regularly.




From LDS.org: SALT LAKE CITY 4 October 2008 Five new temples were announced today by President Thomas S. Monson, leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, during the Church’s 178th Semiannual General Conference in Salt Lake City. With 128 temples currently operating and with another 17 in some phase of planning or construction, these five temples bring the worldwide total to 145.
The additional temples will be built in the greater Kansas City area; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Calgary Alberta, Canada; Córdoba, Argentina; and Rome, Italy. The exact location of these temples will be announced at a later date. Not since April of 2000 have so many temples been announced at one time.

I am so glad that you found our blog. Thanks for coming over, we will have to do it again sometime. I am currently trying to figure out how to do online scrapbooking. So I may need some answers to some questions.
