“New Temple President Called,” Ensign, Jan. 1978, 75
The temple at Laie, Hawaii, will have a new president and matron, the First Presidency recently announced. Brother Max W. Moody and Sister Muriel Parker Moody, his wife, longtime residents of Hawaii, have received the calls. President Moody presided over the Honolulu Hawaii Stake for ten years before being called as stake patriarch in 1972.
The Hawaii Temple has been closed for extensive interior remodeling and expansion since 1 June 1976, and is expected to reopen in mid-1978. The Moodys will succeed President and Sister C. Lloyd Walch, who have served since April 1971.
