Update: Asuncion Paraguay Temple Closure Confirmed/Changes may be made to estimates for temple-related events for 2019

Hello, everyone! After reaching out to the Church and to some of my contacts for temple-related developments, I have been able to confirm for certain that the Asuncion Paraguay Temple has closed for renovation, as previously stated.

Aside from that, I also wanted to note that I may be rethinking the potential sequence of temple-related events for 2019. I have been reminded that, because work has not yet begun in full for the Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple, it is more likely than not that both the Rome Italy and Durban South Africa Temples will likely be dedicated prior to the dedication for Haiti's first temple.

As with everything else, I am keeping my eyes open for any and all temple related developments, and I will post any updates ASAP after receiving them. That does it for this post. Any comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time. Until my next post, I wish each one of you all the best and pray the Lord's blessings upon you all.

Slight Update to my thoughts on the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple Construction Process

Hello again, everyone! I wanted to post some updated thoughts about the process of construction for the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple. While many sources available to me have offered a general estimate that full-scale construction may begin at some point during the first half of 2018, I have done some further study about the climate in Winnipeg. That study has led me to conclude that full-scale construction will begin once the winter season ends. Since spring comes near the end of March, it is my new feeling that earnest work can begin on that temple somewhere around the beginning of April. If that happens, and if the redesign of that temple does not change the estimate we have been given of 20 months for that process, then the construction of that temple will be wrapped up as 2019 ends. That being the case, the dedication would likely follow in February or March 2020. If weather conditions cooperate enough to allow construction to begin a month or two earlier, then the dedication could take place before the end of 2019. It will be interesting to see what happens in that regard.

That does it for this post. Any comments are welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time. Until my next post, I wish each one of you all the best and pray the Lord's blessings will be upon each of you in all that you do.

Changing my original thoughts about the potential name for the second temple in Manila

Hello again, everyone, as we mark the beginning of the month of November. As some of you may remember, at one point a month or two ago, I had expressed my opinion that the second temple to be built in Manila Philippines might be named the Alabang Manila Temple. Since that time, I have not published any update on that, and when I published a full version of that report earlier this week, I had removed any unofficial name for that temple. It is anticipated that the Church may announce the official name at any point in the future, whether prior to the groundbreaking for that temple, or at very least during that ceremony, whenever that might happen.

So then the question arises, what might that temple be named. I have heard a few possibilities floating around, and any one of them could be possible. I list those here, in no particular order, with the exception of the last one, which seems to be the most likely possibility.

Manila Philippines Temple (the idea behind that one seems to be that, since the temple currently known by that name is actually located in the area known as Quezon City in Metro-Manila, that temple would be renamed the Quezon City Philippines Temple)
Manila Philippines Muntinlupa Temple
Manila Philippines Muntinlupa City Temple
Muntinlupa Philippines Temple
Muntinlupa City Philippines Temple
Manila Philippines Alabang Temple

That is the complete list of possibilities I have heard floating around. That said, I want to hear your thoughts on these possibilities. Have I overlooked anything? Which do you feel are most likely? That does it for this post. Thank you for the privilege of your time. Until my next post, I wish each one of you all the best and pray the Lord's blessings will be upon all of you.
