Mt Timpanogos Utah 5x7 Temple Sketch
The Indian name of the mountain, Timpanogos, in the Aztecan-Nahuatl language can be translated as an exalted golden mountain across water. In October 1993, members of the First Presidency broke ground for the new temple named after the majestic, mountain to the east. President Gordon B. Hinckley mentioned how many people in the church wondered why a ninth temple was being built in Utah. The answer lies in the pressure on the Provo Temple and the Jordan River Temple, he said. The two are the church's busiest, accounting for 20 percent of the work among the church's 45 operating temples worldwide. Thus, the Mount Timpanogos Temple is positioned about halfway between the two. (Deseret News, LDS Presidency break ground for new temple, Dennis Romboy, 10 October 1993) In this temple drawing, Chad has intricately sketched Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, cradling one of his sheep, with his flock among the clouds and snowcapped mountains. I visited the temple while it was under construction early in the spring, explains the artist. As I was studying the temple and its setting, I noticed winter's last traces of snow remaining on the mountain peaks. These conditions provided an ideal opportunity to depict the sheep following their master. . . to the temple. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom . . . (Isaiah 40:11).
