President Monson announced the construction of a Temple in Italy. I am very excited to see the Saints of Italy blessed with a Temple. On my first day in Rome as a missionary we went to what we knew as the viletta. Here we were told of the work we were doing and that we hoped to build a temple on this piece of land. Now that dream has been realized. To get more information on the Italy Rome Temple click here. The outlined piece of land is where the temple will be built. Inside the circles are the viletta and an olive orchard.
Here is President Pacini in the olive orchard. Here he would have each of the new missionaries come and kneel in the orchard and pray for the work in Italy.
