The temple was closed so it could be renovated (repaired). Afterward, it had to be dedicated again.

First there was an open house. Anyone could come. They put shoe covers on before walking through the temple.

Elder and Sister Uchtdorf also met with the youth. “When you come to the temple, always think of Jesus Christ and what He means to you!” Elder Uchtdorf said.

Elder Uchtdorf said a special prayer to dedicate the temple. Then the temple was, once again, the house of the Lord!
