A Visit with Elder and Sister Holbrook

I spent some time with Elder and Sister Holbrook yesterday at the Temple site. Although it was cold and a bit snowy, there is a warmth there that will make you grateful for the wonderful blessing of the Hartford Connecticut Temple.

The Welcome Center (i.e. Owner's Trailer) is a must see. In it there are several displays about the Church, including a map with pins showing where each of the 170 Temples (141 operating, 13 under construction and 16 announced) are located around the world. Looking at that map you'll spot the Hartford Connecticut Temple easily. How fortunate we are to have Temples so close. My favorite part of the Welcome Center displays are the beautiful artist's renderings of the reception area, baptistry, instruction rooms and celestial room within the temple. Not only does the architecture of the Temple fit the community, but the interior design also reflects a definite New England style.

The artist's renderings of the Temple interior cannot be seen anywhere else. Please take time to visit the site and say hello (and thanks) to the Holbrooks. You'll feel God's love there and the experience will keep you excited for our Temple.
