Updated Future Estimates for Known Temple-related Events

Hello again, everyone! Though I am returning to do so a little later than I anticipated, I am posting right now to note that I have updated the estimates I have previously provided for known temple-related events based on the new information I shared early this morning regarding how both the Rome Italy and Kinshasa DR Congo Temples may be dedicate before the end of this year. Those updates follow below.

That does it for this post. Any and all 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 that the Lord will bless you all in everything you do.


2018:
Monday February 19: Oakland California temple Renovation Closure (date has been confirmed)
Sunday March 4: Washington DC Temple Renovation Closure (date has been confirmed)
Sunday April 15 or 22: Houston Texas Temple Rededication (private)
April or May: Full-scale construction anticipated to begin on the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple
Sunday May 20: Jordan River Utah Temple Rededication/Mesa Arizona Temple Renovation Closure (both have been confirmed)
July: Hamilton New Zealand Temple Renovation Closure (confirmation of official closure date is pending)
Sunday August 12 or 19: Concepcion Chile Temple Dedication (160th operating temple)
Sunday September 16 or 23: Frankfurt Germany Temple Rededication
Sunday October 14 or 21: Barranquilla Colombia Temple Dedication (161st operating temple)
Sunday November 11 or 18: Rome Italy Temple Dedication (162nd operating temple)
Sunday December 9 or 16: Kinshasa DR Congo Temple Dedication (163rd operating temple)
NOTE: In view of new information received in the early morning hours of January 28, 2018, there is reason to believe that both the Rome and Kinshasa temples will be dedicated prior to the end of 2018. Based on that new information, I am optimistic enough to venture the estimated time-frames above. But if either temple has its progress delayed further for any reason, that could push the dedication of one (or both) of them back into early 2019. I am keeping my eyes open for information and updates and will make adjustments as they are needed.

2019:
Mid-February: Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple Dedication (164th operating temple)
Mid-to-late March: Memphis Tennessee Temple Rededication
Mid-to-late April: Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple Rededication
Mid-May: Lisbon Portugal Temple Dedication (165th operating temple)
Early-to-mid June: Raleigh North Carolina Temple Rededication
Early-to-mid August: Durban South Africa Temple Dedication (166th operating temple)
Mid-to-late August: Asuncion Paraguay Temple Rededication
Mid-September: Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple Rededication
Mid-to-late October: Fortaleza Brazil Temple Dedication (167th operating temple)
Mid-November: Arequipa Peru Temple Dedication (168th operating temple)
Mid-December: Oakland California Temple Rededication
NOTE: While the Church has indicated that this temple’s rededication is anticipated during 2019, it is one of the older ones, and, as such, if the renovation process is delayed for any reason whatsoever, its rededication could be pushed back into 2020.
                       
2020:
Mid-February: Rio de Janeiro Brazil Temple Dedication (169th operating temple)
Mid-to-late April: Tokyo Japan Temple Rededication
Early-to-mid June: Winnipeg Manitoba Temple Dedication (170th operating temple)
Early-to-mid September: Mesa Arizona Temple Rededication         
Mid-November: Washington DC Temple Rededication

2021:
Mid-May: Hamilton New Zealand Temple Rededication
NOTE: I heard that 2018 and 2019 could be big years for temple groundbreakings. If that proves correct, then many other temples could also be dedicated during 2020 and 2021. It also seems safe to assume that other temple renovations will be announced, which will in turn necessitate subsequent rededications. As the next two years unfold, I will have a better idea of when such events may occur, and they can then be added to the other estimates above.


Further Temple Updates Provided

Hello again, everyone! I am back with an early-morning post to share some updates I have received on temples. Most significantly, in addition to what I posted yesterday, it would appear that the process of cladding the exterior of the Concepcion Chile Temple with stone has been completed.

Additionally, an article published by a newspaper in Italy has pointed to the idea that the Rome temple could be dedicated prior to the end of this year, and with the steady progress made in Kinshasa, the odds are that it may also likely be dedicated prior to the end of this year.

This information came to my attention recently enough that I am still evaluating it, and with everything I have been working on, I have been up for almost the last 18 hours, so I will be reevaluating things later on today (likely this afternoon or evening) and post those results when I have them. Just wanted to pass all of this along, for what it may be worth to any of you.

That does it for this post. Any and all 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 that the Lord will bless you all in everything you do.
