Yes, it was freezing but, it was totally worth it.
Here was the first time we got to see the Angel Moroni. It brought tears to my eyes the spirit was so strong. It was really amazing to be that close.
Here he is being hoisted up by the crane.
I took pictures of the whole process as they hoisted him up to the top of the temple.
Here they lined him up with a hole in the spire to put the "pole" Moroni is attached to in the spire.
They slowly guided Moroni into the spire.
Here he is all the way in!
They unhooked the crane and there he is atop of our magnificent temple!
This is the only view I could get a picture of Moroni w/out equipment in the pictures.
Here is a picture of the temple as we were leaving. It is amazing how much work they have done since the last time we were here, which was just a month ago. I feel so blessed to have a temple being built so close to our home. It is just 30-40 minutes away. Compared to our 3-4 hour trips to St. Louis it will be a breeze to attend the temple. I can't wait for it to be finished!!
