LDS Church Dedicates First Ukrainian Meetinghouses

KIEV, UKRAINE -- The first two meetinghouses built by the Church in the Ukraine Kiev Mission were dedicated on September 7th and 8th by members of the Europe East Area Presidency. Elder Robert F. Orton of the Seventy, second counselor in the area presidency, dedicated the Borshagovs meetinghouse in the Svyatoshinsky District on Sept. 7, while Elder Keith K. Hilbig, also of the Seventy and first counselor in the area presidency, dedicated the Voskresens meetinghouse in the Livoberezhny District on Sept. 8. The buildings were renovated from existing buildings with the assistance of local members and completed a year ago, but the Church only recently received final documentation confirming Church ownership. The Ukraine was dedicated for the preaching of the gospel 10 years ago by President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve. Since then it has grown to include 4,500 members. One meetinghouse in the Ukraine Donetsk Mission was previously dedicated.
