SALT LAKE CITY – The locations of 18 new temples were announced during the 192nd Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

President Russell M. Nelson made the announcement toward the end of the afternoon session on Sunday, Oct. 2.

He said the focus of the new temples is in metropolitan areas, such as Mexico City, where travel time to an existing temple is a major challenge.

The new temples will be built at or near the following locations:

  • Eket, Nigeria
  • Naga, Philippines
  • Santiago, Philippines
  • Busan, Korea
  • Chiclayo, Peru
  • Buenos Aires City Center, Argentina
  • Londrina, Brazil
  • Riberao Preto, Brazil
  • Huehuetenango, Guatemala
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • Grand Rapids, Michigan
  • Prosper, Texas
  • Lone Mountain, Nevada
  • Tacoma, Washington
  • Cuernavaca, Mexico
  • Pachuca, Mexico
  • Toluca, Mexico
  • Tula, Mexico

Since becoming the leader of the Church in January 2018, President Nelson has announced the construction of 118 additional temples.

Following Sunday’s announcement, the Church now has 300 temples announced, under construction or in operation.

Along with the temple announcement, Church leadership focused on loving one another and overcoming the complexities and challenges of the world.

“Because Jesus Christ overcame this fallen world and because he atoned for each of us, you too can overcome this sin-saturated, self-centered, and often exhausting world,” President Nelson said on Sunday.

Because of construction around Temple Square, attendance was limited in the Conference Center. On Sunday, about 12,000 people attended each of the two sessions, which is about half capacity.
