Atlanta Georgia Temple: Atlanta temple insights

Elder William R. Walker of the Seventy and executive director of the Temple Department has been involved with numerous temple dedications in many parts of the world. Perhaps none has had the personal impact as the rededication of the Atlanta Georgia Temple.

Elder Walker and his wife, Vicky, were living near the temple when it was built and dedicated in 1983. "We had a young family," he said in a conversation with the Church News.
