Traveling Temple Open Houses

We wanted to draw your attention to an interesting announcement from The Church:

https://news-gu.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/yigo-guam-temple-open-househttps://www.thechurchnews.com/temples/2022-05-02/inside-the-new-yigo-guam-temple-and-its-traveling-open-house-252759

A new temple is about to open in Yigo Guam. As is tradition, the temple will be opened for an open house before its dedication.

The local area around Guam though includes many different island nations, and COVID-19 travel restrictions are still abundant in the area. The traveling open house, the first of its kind, will include both photos of the temple’s exterior and interior as well as samples of the materials used in construction so that visitors can better appreciate it.

Traveling open houses will never have the full-impact of visiting the temple, but it may be a way to invite visitors to learn about the temple in increasingly remote areas in the future. We’re excited to see how this open house goes, and if the plan is revisited in the future.
