Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple

While Brady was visiting his Dad for his birthday, they were able to attend the open house for the new Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple.
His Dad was kind enough to email me some of the pictures of their visit.

There is my handsome son at the entrance of this beautiful temple.
I am always excited that he has had the opportunity to attend temple open houses and attend the temple in general to perform baptismal ordinances. He's been to the Boise Temple, The Rexburg Temple, The Twin Falls Temple and now the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple.

I'm trying to think how many I have have been in.... I've been to the Salt Lake Temple, Jordan River Temple, Boise Idaho Temple and the Logan Temple, Provo Temple. I'm pretty sure that is it... Oh... I did attend the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple open house.
If you can see, the Angle Moroni has been struck be lightning. He will be replaced before the dedication.
After he is taken off of the Oquirrh Mountain temple, he will be refinished and used on another temple. This will be the only Angle Moroni to have set on two different temples.
From the Oquirrh Mountain Temple, You can see the Jordan River Temple and the new Draper Temple.
Brady couldn't believe they built another temple in that area. He was amazed that there were three temples in a small geographical area. I told him it was a good thing. Just the fact that they need lots ot temples to be accessible to all the worthy people. So many people who attend the temple that they are over flowing. Isn't it wonderful!
A temple is such a blessing. I'm am thankful for temples, the House of God.
Holiness to the Lord!

Oh my! Brady was just down the street from me! I wish I would have been a usher on the day he was there.. that would have been so much fun! :) There are alot of "other" things that are going to be replaced.. so it will be a little more different after the temple is dedicated!

Wish YOU could have been here! I'm hopeful.. one day...
