Why Mormons Build Temples

This just in....

In anticipation of the announced airing of temple ceremonies on an HBO soap opera, last Thursday, March 12, the Church posted a video on the Church's YouTube channel Mormon Messages titled "Why Mormons Build Temples."

What happened over the next 96 hours was nothing short of a miracle.

On Friday, March 13, the video became the #10 Most-Watched Video on YouTube. This caused the video to be featured on the main YouTube home page, which provided more exposure.

On Saturday, March 14, the video was designated as the #3 most-popular "viral" video on the Internet according to viralvideocharts.com, which described the video on that day as "spreading across the Internet like wildfire!"

On Saturday night, March 14, the Google Videos search page ranked the video as the NUMBER ONE "HOT VIDEO," highlighting it prominently on the Google Videos search page.

Millions of people everywhere have now seen and heard all about the real reasons for temples--people who would never otherwise have given it a thought.

Isn't it interesting how the Lord works?
