Elder Gary E. Stevenson and his wife, Sister Lesa Stevenson, traveled to Chile with President Russell M. Nelson and his wife, Sister Wendy Nelson, for a very important event. A new temple was being dedicated in the city of Concepción!

This beautiful new temple is the second one in Chile and the 18th temple in South America.

Many earthquakes happen in Chile. The Concepción Chile Temple has a special foundation to help keep it from being damaged if an earthquake hits.

Laura and Alicia O. helped put the last stone in the outside of the temple. This is called the cornerstone of the temple. Then the temple was ready to be dedicated.

Children came with their parents to hear President Nelson give a special prayer to dedicate the temple.

Worthy members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are now able to go inside to do temple baptisms and be sealed to their families!

I Love to See the Temple

Friend Magazine, 2019/09 Sep

By Janice Kapp Perry

I love to see the temple.

I’m going there someday

To feel the Holy Spirit,

To listen and to pray.

For the temple is a house of God,

A place of love and beauty.

I’ll prepare myself while I am young;

This is my sacred duty.

I love to see the temple.

I’ll go inside someday.

I’ll covenant with my Father;

I’ll promise to obey.

For the temple is a holy place

Where we are sealed together.

As a child of God, I’ve learned this truth:

A family is forever.
