Alma 43:1-2; 44:24; 45:2-8, 15-19: The End of Alma’s Record
During his dedication of the Uintah Stake Tabernacle on 24 August 1907, Joseph F. Smith, the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, told his audience that he “would not be surprised if the day would come when a temple would be built in your own midst here.”
The Tabernacle was a beloved building in the relatively small and quite remote Utah town of Vernal. But it eventually became obsolete. It hosted its last stake conference in 1983 and, in subsequent years, fell into disuse and disrepair. The idea of converting it into a temple was raised already in 1984. In 1993, that proposal was approved. The interior of the Tabernacle was completely gutted, and a temple was constructed inside its walls, underneath it, and in attached structures. Today, the Vernal Utah Temple bears two dedication dates, 1907 and 1997 — representing its first consecration as a tabernacle and its second consecration, its remarkable transformation into a temple.
