Yesterday, October 13, 2019, was a blessed day for the members of the church in the area, as the Raleigh North Carolina Temple was rededicated by President M. Russell Ballard, acting president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. The temple was closed in January of 2018 for major renovations, so the saints in the area have been without “their” temple for more than a year and a half! Both the interior and exterior were significantly altered, making the temple look like a whole new structure.
The Raleigh Temple was the 68th temple in the world when it was dedicated on December 18, 1999, by then-President Gordon B. Hinckley. The temple sits nestled among a local forest and evergreen trees in the suburban Wake County community of Apex, roughly 15 miles southwest of the historic colonial city of Raleigh.
