Elder Soares Visits Colombia

The Apostles travel around the world to minister to people and teach them about Jesus Christ.

Soares, Ulisses
Friend Magazine, 2019/12 Dec

Elder Ulisses Soares traveled with President Dallin H. Oaks to help dedicate a new temple in Colombia, in the city of Barranquilla [bar-an-KEE-ya].

Many children came with their parents to see the new temple be dedicated.

President Oaks invited a boy and girl to help seal the cornerstone in place. The temple was finished!

Inside the temple after the cornerstone ceremony, Elder Soares gave a talk. Then President Oaks gave a prayer to dedicate the temple to the Lord. Now the temple is the Lord’s house.

Now children will be able to go inside to be sealed to their families and do temple baptisms!

Build a Temple

Temples are being built all over the world! Build this mini temple to remind you of that holy place.

Glue this page on white paper. Then cut out the temple and fold on the dotted lines. Glue or tape the tab to the inside wall to hold it together. Now you have your own pop-up version of the Barranquilla Temple!

More temple-building ideas you could try:

  • Use sugar cubes as bricks and glue them together.

  • Make one with plastic blocks.

  • Mold a sculpture using clay or play dough.

  • Build one out of graham crackers and frosting.
