SALT LAKE CITY- President Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints announced eight new temples to be built. This occurred during the concluding session of the church's annual general conference this year.
Eight new temples were announced for the following locations:
Pago Pago, American Samoa
Okinawa City, Okinawa
Tooele Valley, Utah
Moses Lake, Washington
San Pedro Sula, Honduras
President Nelson also said plans were in place to renovate old pioneer-age temples such as the Salt Lake City temple, and Manti, Utah and Logan, Utah temples. More plans for the Salt Lake City temple renovation will be announced Friday, April 19, 2019.
“This work will require that each temple be closed for a period of time,” President Nelson said. “Church members may continue to enjoy temple worship and service in other temples nearby. When each project is completed, each historic temple will be rededicated.”
