The North Visitors’ Center on Temple Square has changed a bit with the arrival of three new exhibits on April 2. The three exhibits, “Because He Lives,” “8 Stories,” and “Following Christ Through the Book of Mormon,” are designed to help members and other visitors come closer to Christ.
“Because He Lives” is a series of artistic photographs depicting events from the birth, ministry and Resurrection of the Savior. Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission President David Poulsen said, “They’re very representative of what we’re trying to teach. ... It’s a fresh look in the visitors’ center here. Because they are photographs, they seem so very lifelike.” President Poulsen noted that the new series “gives a little more variety and ability to teach about the mission, Resurrection and Atonement of Christ.”
Also on the same floor in the southeast corner of the visitors’ center is a new exhibit focused on missionary work. “8 Stories” features the journeys of eight young people who served in the California San Diego Mission. They are the same missionaries featured in “The District 2” series.
