Panama Temple Open House begins
Temple at night, after rain
This was one of several TV and radio programs associated with the opening of the temple. Of the 22 press people who attended the press conference, ten left comment cards, three of whom asked for visits and three of whom asked for additional literature. One radio comentator was very enthusiastic in his praise of the temple on his program the next day, telling everyone that they HAD to go. Many of the VIP visitors have had very positive comments to make about what they felt. Several have said it is the most beautiful building they have ever seen.
