LDS Church Takes Additional Cost Cutting Measures
New LDS cost cutting measure says temple goers need to put in some labor in construction at the temple during regularly scheduled construction dates before or after regular sessions or weddings. The new policy will go into effect immediately. LDS general authorities say that all the training that is needed for the volunteer workers will be posted on clearly marked posters around the jobsite. Elder John Widstoe of the Presidency of the Seventy said this was a marvelous blessing to be able to actually contribute meaningful service at temple sites around the world. The amount of money the church will be saving in labor expenses was not disclosed, however.
