President Nelson Expresses Gratitude for the Reopening of All Temples

The Kyiv Ukraine Temple is the last house of the Lord to reopen during the pandemic

President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today posted a reflection to his Facebook and Instagram pages about the reopening of all the Church’s temples. See the post below.

Note: The Kyiv Ukraine Temple, which reopened today, July 5, is the last of the faith’s 160 operating temples to resume worship since all closed at the onset of the pandemic. Because COVID-19 conditions vary widely around the world, temple operations are adjusted weekly and temporarily paused when necessary. Worship in 10 temples is currently paused and will resume as soon as local conditions allow. Another eight temples are closed for renovation.
