PHOTO ESSAY

Thousands of youth gathered in the LDS Conference Center this weekend to sing, dance and tell the history of temples in a cultural celebration in anticipation of the Jordan River Temple’s rededication on Sunday.

They sang, “I am ready. I am ready. Stronger every day. And I know He’ll help me find the way.”

The Jordan River Temple has been closed for a little over two years, while the interiors were dramatically refreshed and work was done on the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as the foundation of the temple. It was first dedicated in 1981 and has been one of the most heavily used temples since then.
