Angel Moroni Placed Atop Campinas Temple

CAMPINAS, BRAZIL -- Today was a great day for the Church in Campinas. At just after 12:00 noon, a group of local members, including the Area President, several Area Authorities, the Mission President and nine stake presidents and their families watched as a gold-leaf statue of the Angel Moroni was placed atop the Campinas Temple.

With the placement of the Angel Moroni, the exterior of the temple is essentially complete, and interior work will now move ahead even more quickly. Landscaping is beginning to take shape, and the overall sense is that the final phases of construction will be finished before we know it.

No dates have been announced for the proposed completion or dedication, and no callings have been announced regarding the president and matron of the temple. Beyond that, the local interest in the temple grows each day. The site has become instantly recognizable as the most beautiful building in Campinas, and curiosity about the temple and its purposes is running high. Members and non-members alike have commented on how the temple is quickly becoming a very significant part of Campinas.
