The Boise Idaho Temple was rededicated Sunday, 18 November 2012 by Thomas S. Monson, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, after receiving significant upgrades and modernizations.
The president of the more than 14 million-member church was greeted by Idaho and Oregon Latter-day Saints eager to enter the temple since its closure in July 2011 for extensive renovation of the interior, exterior and grounds.
President Monson was joined for the rededication by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and Elder Craig C. Christensen and Elder William R. Walker of the Seventy. Also attending were members of the temple presidency and the temple matrons.
“It shines as a beacon of righteousness to all who will follow its light,” said President Monson of the temple Saturday evening. “We treasure that light, and we thank our Heavenly Father for the blessings this temple and all temples bring into our lives.”
