Obviously, the biggest news of this past week was the groundbreaking for the Sapporo Temple. As you can see from the map, the new mission home will also be located on the temple grounds.
What a blessing for the Saints in Hokkaido. We were so excited when the temple was announced approximately two years ago. We thought for sure that we would be there for the groundbreaking and hoped for the dedication as well. Unfortunately, we had already returned when they broke the ground. We were able to assist with the preparation and site selection which was an experience that we will always treasure. We do plan to return for the dedication of the temple. Each missionary who served in Sapporo help lay the foundation of this temple. I am grateful for all of the young men and women that we had the privilege to serve with us as well as all of the Mission Presidents and missionaries that preceded us.
