Brethren, as it has been an un-official  trend of this blog, if I find videos that I think are inspirational or worth spiritual understanding, I post them here for all to see. My friend Seth Adam Smith has made another great Temple video of “The Construction of the Kyiv Ukraine LDS Temple” and I wish you all to view it. I hope it brings the Spirit as powerfully to you as it did to me. Enjoy!

As of April 2010, the exterior of the Kyiv Ukraine Temple is finished, and landscaping and fence installation are underway.

On Saturday, September 19, 2009, about 680 members of the Kyiv Ukraine Stake, outlying mission branches, and their friends gathered to witness the raising of Moroni atop the spire of the Kyiv Ukraine Temple. This event marks a major milestone in the construction of the temple, which is expected to be dedicated in late summer of 2010.

Nearly nine years since its announcement, ground was broken for the temple on Saturday, June 23, 2007, coinciding with the 97th birthday of President Gordon B. Hinckley. The event was indeed a fitting tribute to this inspired leader, whose program for accelerated temple construction worldwide paved the way for this temple in Ukraine.

Though only recently introduced in 1991, the Church has grown steadily in this eastern European nation. At 8,500 members strong, the Church in Ukraine reached a milestone on May 30, 2004, when Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles organized the first stake of seven wards in Kyiv. Elder Nelson blessed members to love their neighbors as Christ that many more stakes might be organized. He also encouraged them in their family history work in preparation for the temple.
