The LDS Church is rolling out another temple video just six months after releasing a new temple instruction video in July 2013.
“An additional temple film is now in use,” said Cody Craynor, spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “As with previous films, this second instructional presentation is rotated with the film released this past July to give variety.
“Like the first film in use there have been no changes to the script. English-language copies of the new film are being sent to temples over the next few weeks and will subsequently be translated into other languages.”
There are currently 141 LDS temples operating throughout the world. LDS temples are different than LDS meetinghouses — meetinghouses are used for weekly Sunday services while temples are for special instruction for worthy members of the LDS Church.
Earlier this week, the LDS Church released information for two new temple open houses: the Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple and the Gilbert Arizona Temple. The Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple will hold an open house from March 29, 2014 to April 19, 2014; then it will be dedicated on May 4, 2014.
The Gilbert Arizona Temple announced open house dates starting this Saturday from Jan. 18 to Feb. 15 2014. On March 2, the Gilbert Arizona Temple will be dedicated making it the 142nd fully operating temple for the LDS Church.
