Newest Revised Estimates for Future Temple Events

Hello again, everyone! Based on newly reported temple developments, further research into the relevant climate factors, and some rudimentary deductive reasoning, I have made further alterations to my estimates for future temple-related events. Those updated estimates 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.

Future estimates for known temple-related events

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 (official closure date confirmation is pending)
Sunday August 12 or 19: Concepcion Chile Temple Dedication (160th operating temple)
Sunday September 16 or 23: Barranquilla Colombia Temple Dedication (161st operating temple)
Sunday October 14 or 21: Rome Italy Temple Dedication (162nd operating temple)
Sunday December 9 or 16: Kinshasa DR Congo Temple Dedication (163rd operating temple)
NOTE: If the completion of the Kinshasa Temple is delayed for any reason whatsoever, that would obviously delay its’ dedication until the early months of 2019. With that said, further research on my part seems to point to mid-December as the best time for this event. I will keep my eyes open for more information and will post updates as further information is provided.

Mid-February: Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple Dedication (164th operating temple)
Mid-to-late April: Frankfurt Germany Temple Rededication
Early-to-mid May: Fortaleza Brazil Temple Dedication (165th operating temple)
Mid-to-late May: Memphis Tennessee Temple Rededication
Early-to-mid June: Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple Rededication
Mid-August: Raleigh North Carolina Temple Rededication
Early-to-mid September: Lisbon Portugal Temple Dedication (166th operating temple)
Mid-to-late September: Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple Rededication
Mid-to-late October: Asuncion Paraguay Temple Rededication
Mid-November: Durban South Africa Temple Dedication (167th operating temple)
Mid-December: Arequipa Peru Temple Dedication (168th operating temple)
Mid-February: Oakland California Temple Rededication
NOTE: Although the First Presidency has indicated that this temple would be rededicated prior to the end of 2019, the fact that it is a considerably older temple leads me to believe that will not take place until early 2020 at earliest, but I could see that being pushed back further as well.
Mid-to-late March: Rio de Janeiro Brazil Temple Dedication (169th operating temple)
Mid-May: Tokyo Japan Temple Rededication
Early-to-mid June Mesa Arizona Temple Rededication
Mid-August: Winnipeg Manitoba Temple Dedication (170th operating temple)
Mid-November: Washington DC Temple Rededication

Mid-to-late April: 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 new 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.
