A World of Fun

From the temple lot, over the roof of the police station, you can see Worlds of Fun, an amusement park in Kansas City, North.
Not pictured but seen to the left of the roller coaster is the RLDS temple or what is now known as the Community of Christ temple, located in Independence.

With the removal of hills and soil, the view of the surrounding area is appearing. We have had some snow and extreme cold weather so work has slowed down quite a bit.
Information about open house and dedication dates for the Gila Valley Arizona Temple is now posted at This temple was announced in April of 2008...just 6 months before ours was announced. These are fun times....I think even funner then a roller coaster.

Progress Report in December

Here's what the west entrance to the temple site looked like in August...Here's how it looks December...
That's quite a change. The property is almost unrecognizable now. It's shaping up nicely. Hopefully we'll have some news on a ground breaking ceremony soon!

Moving Heaven and Earth

Much is being accomplished at the temple lot in our FABULOUS fall weather right now. These cooler dry days are being taken full advantage of.

There are dozens of tractors moving earth all over. Little boys would be in heaven with all the equipment roaming the dirt hills. The entire face of the property is being moulded and shaped and changed. Even some of the original chain link fencing is coming down. It's like watching a little bit of heaven being created on earth. It's a pretty exciting time to be a Chaser...

For the Strength of the Youth

Fellow Temple Chasers are sighted this week!

These pictures were taken just a couple of days ago at the beautiful round-a-bout across from the temple lot. It's so great to see the youth get excited about the new temple.
Thank you to Nathan, Tyler and Jordan!

Mom says, "Oh how I can't wait to take some groundbreaking pix. Like my mom said..."patience is a virtue!" So now we wait..."

What's the Difference between a Temple and a Chapel or Meetinghouse?

This is a common question. There have even been questions as to why our meetinghouses, where we worship each Sunday, seem so understated and not elaborate in architecture and design. I have found several articles that can help give answers. I've also included links to them on my sidebar for quick access.

What is the difference between a temple and a meetinghouse?

"Regular Sunday worship, instruction and other social and recreational activities occur in Latter-day Saint meetinghouses, or chapels. In temples, on the other hand, faithful members receive specific instruction about the purpose of life and their relationship to God. There they take part in family-oriented ordinances, both for themselves and in behalf of deceased ancestors. Sacred ordinances available only in temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally."

I think that would explain why our meetinghouses are generally understated and not ornately decorated or embellished. We utilize our meetinghouses for a variety of purposeful activities, not only Sabbath worship. It has always been my opinion, however, that generally the chapels in our meetinghouses, though understated are beautiful, as that is where we perform the sacred ordinance of the Sacrament.

I thought this paragraph found in this article, might be helpful as well.

"Often local Mormon Church buildings include more than a chapel. Such multi-use buildings include classrooms, administrative offices for local lay-leaders (bishop and clerk’s offices), a library, a kitchen, and a cultural hall. Mormons sometimes call these local buildings the “meetinghouse,” “church” or “chapel,” but they generally refer to the building itself instead of some specific section. Most LDS meetinghouses display the Church’s logo, meeting times and a “Visitors Welcome” sign somewhere on the building or on a small marquee in front. Additionally, there is the ubiquitous spire or steeple associated with such buildings that tend to reflect, despite architectural nuances, a sense of familiarity and connectedness no matter where they are found throughout the world." - I think this is one of the reasons why our meetinghouses are less stately then our temples, because they are uniform. This gives a great feeling of continuity and enables our churches to be recognizable wherever they may be.

A truly great reference for Questions that are frequently asked about the temple can be found here.

Here is an article explaining the differences between Temples and Meetinghouses or Chapels.

President Gordon B. Hinckley sums up the differences between temples and meetinghouses perfectly in this article when he said,
"These buildings (temples), different from the thousands of regular Church houses of worship scattered over the earth, are unique in purpose and function from all other religious edifices. It is not the size of these buildings or their architectural beauty that makes them so. It is the work that goes on within their walls."

It is what goes on within their walls that makes them different. Understanding those differences can help explain their design and purpose as well.

Questions are good! We love questions! And I love anwers and can always use help in that department so if anyone has any other great answers or references as to what the differences are between temples and meetinghouses, let me know!
So, here's my Frequently Asked Question: When are people going to start sending me pictures of themselves or their families at the temple lot? Today would not be a good day to go take will get muddy, but the forcast looks good in the future!

Rain or Shine

In this rain...

Business is still going forth in spite of of the rain....and it is pouring here in KC today.
It appears as though the dump trucks are ready to haul away the piles that are forming all over the property.

It's hard to see in these pictures, the little blue and red tractors pushing brush and trees around. It looks like culverts are going in to prepare for.....roads!!

Busy Work

A trip to the newly approved temple lot today gave us a glimpse of busy work. With final approvals in, I suppose it will be more common to see work trucks there.I may need to go there after work hours and see what they've been working on....

Monday, October 26, 2009


On October 22, 2009, the Kansas City Council (watch video) approved the final plat of The Meadows at Searcy Creek First Plat—the subdivision where the Kansas City Missouri Temple will be located. The plat subdivides approximately 26 acres, generally located south of NE Shoal Creek Drive, east of Searcy Creek Parkway, west of Interstate 435 and north of NE Pleasant Valley Road, into one church lot, 22 single family lots, and numerous tracts. A day earlier, on October 21, the Planning and Zoning Committee (watch video) gave its recommendation of approval to the Council.

Yipee...let's go!! Go watch the video!

Saturday, October 17, 2009

On October 21, 2009, at 1:30 p.m., The Meadows at Searcy Creek First Plat—the subdivision where the Kansas City Missouri Temple will be located—will be considered for approval by the Planning and Zoning Committee. The plat subdivides approximately 26 acres, generally located south of NE Shoal Creek Drive, east of Searcy Creek Parkway, west of Interstate 435 and north of NE Pleasant Valley Road, into one church lot, 22 single family lots, and numerous tracts.

Originally, I thought this date to be October 15th. But it looks like we still have time to add this to our list of things to pray for.

In Closer Proximity

From General Conference...October 2009

"We continue to build temples. We desire that as many members as possible have an opportunity to attend the temple without having to travel inordinate distances. Worldwide, 83 percent of our members live within 200 miles (320 km) of a temple. That percentage will continue to increase as we construct new temples around the world. Currently there are 130 temples in operation, with 16 announced or under construction. This morning I am pleased to announce 5 additional temples for which sites are being acquired and which, in coming months and years, will be built in the following locations: Brigham City, Utah; ConcepciĆ³n, Chile; Fortaleza, Brazil; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Sapporo, Japan.

Millions of ordinances are performed in the temples each year in behalf of our deceased loved ones. May we continue to be faithful in performing such ordinances for those who are unable to do so for themselves. I love the words of President Joseph F. Smith as he spoke of temple service and of the spirit world beyond mortality. Said he, “Through our efforts in their behalf their chains of bondage will fall from them, and the darkness surrounding them will clear away, that light may shine upon them and they shall hear in the spirit world of the work that has been done for them by their [people] here, and will rejoice with you in your performance of these duties.”'
President Thomas S. Monson

The New Mark Temple Chasers will be embarking on another monthly quest to Winter Quarters this friday at noon. I am reminded of the privilege we have to be within 3 hours of a temple. Even though we will have one within minutes very soon, I still consider it a sacred blessing to be able to travel to and from the temple in the same day. Great and marvelous things are happening. It is a joy to be here at this time. I'm thrilled for those who live in the areas where the more recent temples were announced to be built and I remember how it felt a year ago when a temple was announced for Kansas City. I felt the electricity in my bosom as I know those saints felt too. It was joyous then, as it still is now.

Let the Temple Chase begin for them.

“Our labors in the temple cover us with a shield and a protection, both individually and as a people. The Lord will bless us as we attend to the sacred ordinance work of the temples. Blessings there will not be limited to our temple service. We will be blessed in all of our affairs. We will be eligible to have the Lord take an interest in our affairs both spiritual and temporal.”
Boyd K. Packer
See you in Winter Quarters on Friday, Sept. 25th, noon

A "Source"

Infra Source has been seen at the site this week.
If you google them, you will find...

"InfraSource is a leading provider of infrastructure services for electric power, gas, and telecommunications intensive industries in the United States. InfraSource designs, builds, and maintains transmission and distribution networks for utilities, power producers, and industrial customers."

I've seen trucks from Kansas City and Henderson, Colorado on site. I know they see me coming now and think..."here comes the crazy lady with the camera". I guess they just don't know that I'm the Temple Chaser! I think I need a business card. What do you think?

There's Power in the Poles

KCP&L, the local provider of electricity in this area, including mine...was found today erecting power poles and lines along the west side of the temple lot along Searcy. In my unprofessional opinion, it looks as if these are temporary power lines, maybe just to provide a source of electricity for the improvements and preparations about to be commencing on the church property.
This is exciting.
I've thought a lot about power today. We talked about it in Insitute class. Because of the Priesthood Power on the earth today, the Light of the Lord has been brought about through that Restoration.

Because of the symbolism between light and power I get even more excited when I think about the addition of electricity to the temple lot. The Light is coming.

Prepare Ourselves

This video is a beautiful message to help our Young Women (and Young Men or anyone applicable) to prepare to attend the temple. It would benefit us all to live a life of virtue so that we may always have His Spirit and His blessings of attending, partaking, and serving in the temple.

The symbol of virtue, white and purity are synonomous with the Temple. Let us seek after these things.

Friday, August 28, 2009


I got a tip from a fellow spotter to go see some action at the temple site today...located close to 68th and Searcy intersection...
So, it's not fact, the machinery is unmanned, but it's still action!
Speaking of action. I've set up a once-a-month Relief Society Temple Chasers trip to Winter Quarter's. I'll be there on September 25th, at noon. You're welcome to meet me there. Come introduce yourself as a fellow Chaser...see you there...I'll be dressed in white. :)

130th Temple

The dedication of the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple has been taking place this weekend and will conclude today. I am so excited for those saints who live in close proximity to this temple. Even though there are many temples in Utah, it is still wonderful to be able to live so close to one. Did you know this is the 13th temple to be built in Utah? I tried naming them all the other day and I came up to 12...I missed the Monticello Temple. See if you can name them all...
St. George
Mt. Timpanogas
Oquirrh MT.
Jordan River
Salt Lake City
To celebrate the newest temple dedication, have a Family Home Evening discussing temples and see how many Utah temples your family knows!

And I think what I'm most excited for is this picture.. taken on Friday the 21st, just a couple of days ago. Can't you just see our Prophet dedicating the Kansas City Temple??? I envy those who are in attendance in Utah but I know our time will come when the doors to our very own temple will be opened and we will witness the dedication of His Holy House right here in our own city.

Please let me be there when that day comes!

Blog worthy news

I love that the church public affairs department has put together a blog!
I'm looking forward to receiving current info this way. As always, I will continue to strive to keep up to date on our temple.

Speaking of from

This morning the City Plan Commission met to approve a final plat,
named The Meadows at Searcy Creek, on about 28.8 acres generally
located at the northwest corner of NE Pleasant Valley Road and I-435
in District R-5 and R-1a to allow the creation of 25 lots.

District R-5, a district for high apartments, was recently established
at this location to allow for the height of the Kansas City Missouri
Temple and an adjoining meetinghouse. District R-1a is a district for
one-family dwellings.

Submission of a final plat is one of the conditions set forth in the
preliminary Community Unit Project recently passed by the City Council
for the entire 56-acre development where the temple will be located.
Some site preparations are already underway.

Although no date has been announced for the groundbreaking of the
temple, it is anticipated to occur in the spring of 2010.

Warm regards,

Rick Satterfield

You better believe I'll be checking on the "site preparations" very soon. One thing I noticed awhile back was that there are large power lines that cross directly over the center of the property that will need to be moved or buried. I'm assuming that will happen soon then later. We shall see! Still looking out for more blog worthy news!

And some more...

On Thursday, July 30, a resolution and two ordinances needed to permit construction of the Kansas City Missouri Temple went before the Kansas City Council. The Council adopted the resolution and passed the two ordinances on to the next phase of the approval process.

During the Planning and Zoning Committee meeting the day before, the project representatives noted that the Church wished to begin site construction by the end of this year with construction on the temple beginning likely in April or May of next year, though no groundbreaking date has been announced. Please follow the link below to watch video of the proceedings.


You really ought to watch the is fascinating and you will have a great view of the proposed temple site. Now we can imagine what it will be like!!

So Far So Good

Wouldn't you know it, I'm out of town the first time news comes about the temple!!

At least it's good news right?!

Yesterday, the Kansas City Missouri Planning and Zoning Committeeheard the proposals being put forth to allow for construction of theKansas City Missouri Temple, an adjoining meetinghouse, and 140 residential units on the designated 56-acre site. The Committee unanimously passed the proposals to the City Council with thefollowing recommendations: (1) Shoal Creek Valley Area Plan amendment: Immediate Adoption(2) Rezoning Ordinance: Advance and Do Pass, Debate(3) Community Unit Project: Advance and Do Pass, Debate The City Council meets on these issues today. It has final authorityin the Plan amendment. The other two ordinances, however, will pass tothe City Plan Commission for final approval.

I love seeing the Lord's work move forward and can't wait for groundbreaking. One of the other pieces of info I am excited about is the adjoining meetinghouse! Our area is growing by leaps and bounds...the stone is rolling forth!

Being in Utah has been wonderful and has made me even more excited for construction to begin.

Kansas City, here I come.

Call Out

I have an idea of something to keep us busy while we wait for our temple....still waiting you know. There isn't a week that doesn't go by that I don't drive over and check out the temple lot still. A couple of nights ago a friend of mine from high school and her family stopped by for a visit on their way from Alabama to Utah. I gave them directions to the temple lot so they could check it out. They mentioned they would like to take a picture of their family there and it occurred to me...why not have EVERYONE take a picture there and send it to me? So, there you have new chase....

Go to the temple lot...take a picture of yourself, your family, your pets...whatever you want and email it to me. In the subject line, please type....Temple Lot Photo...and I'll submit it here on the blog. Be sure to include your family's name and where you are from, without giving away too many details. Let's see how many photos we can get!
Go here to find out where the temple will be and take your picture. Go on!

Thursday, April 23, 2009

No news...

which is not good news. I was hoping by now that I would see some earth movement going on at the temple lot. So far, as of noon yesterday...there's not.
But, the weather is beautiful that's good news!

University of Spirituality

"The temple is the place to grow in understanding of those principles of honesty, Elder Busche observed. 'Temples have been erected as houses of the Lord. They are standing ready to serve as instruments to our own gradual awakening on our inevitable road to eternity.'"
Elder Busche of the First Quorum of the Seventy and president of the Frankfurt Germany Temple

I can't wait to attend the "University" here in Kansas City!

A sad day

It's a sad day but an inevitable one too.

The green chair is gone.

There goes my front row seat.

I guess I'll be bringing a chair with me from now on.
I will miss my friend.

Geocache the Chair

Go here to visit.

Updates from the chair

Dear Temple Chaser,

I am still patiently waiting for the groundbreaking ceremony to happen so construction can begin and you can REALLY get to blogging. Our fans our waiting. However, as my luck would have it, I have come into some attention lately that I would not have guessed. It has been interesting how a green old vinyl chair like myself could attract so many visitors…people who are actually looking for me. I like it.
I have been become a Geo Caching site. As some of your helper chasers cruised by me today, just to see how things were going, you can imagine their surprise to find a little medicine pill bottle on my seat. Upon further investigation (as that is how one chaser is wired….) they found the following treasurers:Geo Caching instructions
A sign up sheet of visitors
A blue and pink fingerprint smudged bouncy rubber ball Even though the chasers were not REALLY geocaching, they found it a great opportunity to leave a pass along card and a handwritten note (fortunately one chaser had a mini Sharpie in her purse). The note went something like this: There will be a Mormon temple built on across the street from where you are standing.
To learn more, go to or google “Kansas City Temple Chaser.” J
They also left $1.20 and a note for the finder to go get a Wendy’s frosty.
I feel so popular!

Love to you Temple Chaser

What's this all about?

I'll tell you.
I posted this entry on my personal blog a couple of weeks's about a recent trip I made to the Winter Quarter's Temple in Omaha, Nebraska. Val suggested I post here on the Temple Chaser so you can see what all this is about.

Grandma Cheryl

You can call me Grandma now.
No...not that kind of grandma. I've decided that Grandma's can come in all shapes and sizes and ages. It's not having a "grandchild" that makes you a grandma necessarily.I became a grandma a couple of weeks ago in an unusual way. I'm Val's grandma.We believe, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that we can be sealed to our families all through eternity. That means, when we pass away, we are still united as a family. Our lost children, our loved ones who pass away too soon...everyone...through all generations can be together forever. We perform ordinances here on earth for those who didn't have the opportunity in this life, that they may have the blessings of being with their families forever too. When I do this for someone else, I become a proxy or substitute. I act on their behalf as if they were here. We also believe that the person we stand in proxy for, has the option to accept or not...the work that is done for them. Two weeks ago, I acted on behalf of Val's grandma as she was "sealed" to her parents for all eternity. What an awesome privilege. I'm pretty sure Val's grandma was pleased and is looking forward to spending eternity with her family....even her grand kids. So, you see...I'm a grandma. Just don't call me Granny.

That's what it's all about.

Remember Me?

Dear Temple Chaser,

Remember your old friend, the green Naugahyde chair? Well, I'm still here. I'm waiting patiently and saving your spot to watch the temple be built. It's been a long time since you visited me. Oh, I see you drive by often and I even see you glance my way from time to time. Do you know it's been cold and wet this winter? When you're in your nice warm car, do you think of me? Remember the time you brought your friends or "watchers" out to see me? I was so proud to wear your "Reserved" sign. I'm still here...reserving. I look forward to seeing you again soon. I know the temple will soon come and when it does I will be ready. I also look forward to better days. Better weather. I hold on to the memories of green grass and blue skies, birds chirping, you screaming from slithering snakes...ahh, the good times. Hurry back.
Until then, I remain ever yours...Reserved.

In the News...

Go here to read about JE Dunn building the temple.

“We are proud and humbled that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would select JE Dunn as their building partner on the Kansas City, Missouri, Temple,” Dunn CEO Terry Dunn said in a release Tuesday. “We look forward to working to provide members of the LDS Church in the Kansas City region a special, holy place to call their own.” give us a sign!!

Morning has broken

It's a glorious day here at the temple lot.
Even with 6 degree temperatures. There is no wind and the light dusting of snow is brilliant in the sun.Last night I heard that JeDunn, a large construction company here in the Metro, has been awarded the construction of the temple.
I couldn't help but drive over this morning and see if they've posted a sign yet. Uh no.
Mr. Dunn sir, I would love for you to get all the advertising you can so get yer sign up speedy! And could you be so kind as to post a schedule of construction. Ah yes, I know, you don't do that for all yer clients, but this is special you see. Yer building the House of the Lord, dontcha know??! You'd think they'd be wanting to stick up a sign announcing to all the world..look at us...we're temple builders! Not everyone shares my enthusiasm I s'pose. But, if it were MY company, I'd be purdy darn excited.
So anyway, I also heard...that pre-construction is scheduled to begin in March with groundbreaking to take place in June. Sounds nifty and fine to me. I'd like to see some action over there.
You can start with a SIGN!
Where on earth did I get the accent from this morning?...I think I just like saying JeDunn...that's J-E-Dunn...roll that off your mouth a few times and see if you don't develop an accent for yerself.

Blessings to come our way

I'm so excited for the members in the Draper area. I can't wait until it's our turn.
If you go to the link, you can see photos of the inside of the temple, a rare opportunity and blessing.
Blessings to all who are waiting for the earth to begin turning at Shoal Creek.

Thrust forth your "scythe"

Last Sunday, Sis. Kraft gave an excellent lesson in Relief Society from the Teachings of the Presidents manual entitled, "How Good and How Pleasant It Dwell Together in Unity". I would urge anyone who hasn't heard this lesson to read it. It is an interesting parallel of how to be unified as saints with the building of a temple, which in this lesson is specific to the Kirkland and Nauvoo temples.
I felt the Spirit so strong as Sis. Kraft related the experience that Hyrum Smith had when the revelation was made known to the brethren regarding where the temple site would be located. Immediately Hyrum ran to get a scythe to begin clearing the land for construction, exclaiming, "We are to build a house for the Lord, and I am determined to be the first at work." I so related to his enthusiasm. If I thought it would hurry along the building of our temple, I would take a scythe and clear off the temple site myself today....even in -5 temperatures.

I found an amazing artist...Tim Johnson, who has made breathtaking sculptures. One of his sculptures is of Hyrum Smith with his scythe....inspired by this very statement made by Hyrum. I love this piece of inspires me.

"The advancement of the cause of God and the building up of Zion is as much one man's business as another's.

...let every man, woman and child realize the importance of the work, and act as if success depended on his individual exertion alone." Joseph Smith

"In order to erect the Temple of the Lord, great exertions will be required on the part of the Saints, so that they may build a house which shall be accepted by the Almighty, and in which His power and glory shall be manifested. Therefore let those who can freely make a sacrifice of their time, their talents, and their property, for the prosperity of the kingdom, and for the love they have to the cause of truth,...unite with us in the great work of the last days, and share in the tribulation, that they may ultimately share in the glory and triumph." Joseph Smith

Even though ground has not been broken, we must not let our resolve fail us and continue "building" and preparing for the temple to be in our midst. There is much we can do. Let us thrust forth our scythe and share in the tribulation and glory and triumph.

I found an interesting article this morning that talks about the effect temples can have on surrounding real estate where they are built. I know this has been a positive effect in many areas I've visited.

One quote in the article, by Steve Brown who lives across the street from a temple, really hit me...
"When I wake up in the morning and look out that window, I have the resolve and determination to live through the day and keep the covenants of being an honest and hardworking person," Steve said.

I know now why church leaders have encouraged us to have images of the temple in our home. Most of us won't have the experience in our lifetimes, of living across the street from one of the Lord's houses. In fact, many will ever only come close by hours of driving. However, the effect of waking up and seeing an image of the temple every day in our home can be just as powerful. I was taught in Young Women's that each young girl should have a temple in her bedroom, to remind her each day as she wakes and prepares for the day, of the goals of attending and making covenants in the temple. I believe that can have a profound impact. We can all have the "resolve and determination" as Steve said, "to live through the day and keep the covenants" and I believe keeping the image of the temple close to us can help. Maybe we could find a desirable piece of real estate in our own homes where we can place or build an image of the temple, that we might see it every day and be edified. Could be a fun FHE....looking for a temple site!

Come and get 'em...

"Every foundation stone that is laid for a Temple, and every Temple completed according to the order the Lord has revealed for his holy Priesthood, lessens the power of Satan on the earth, and increases the power of God and Godliness, moves the heavens in mighty power in our behalf, invokes and calls down upon us the blessings of the Eternal Gods, and those who reside in their presence."
President George Q. Cannon

Who doesn't want to have blessings called down?

"Our labors in the temple cover us with a shield and a protection, both individually and as a people. So come to the temple—come and claim your blessings. It is a sacred work."
President Boyd K. Packer
Come and get 'em!
