New President Called for the Veracruz Mexico Temple

Hello again, everyone! Though I have no wish to detract from the big news of today (which is the artist's rendering and site confirmation for the Pocatello Idaho Temple), I did want to note that a new president has been called for the Veracruz Mexico Temple, which is something I had anticipated would occur.

This brings the total number of new temple presidents called this year to 64. Given that many other first presidents have been announced for most of the temples anticipated to be dedicated next year, I am also anticipating that the first presidents for the Fortaleza Brazil and Lisbon Portugal Temples will be announced in the near future. The only other temple on my personal list of those that might have a new president announced this year is the one in Washington D. C.

I am aware, of course, that that particular temple closed for renovation in March of this year, but my reason for suspecting that a new president could be announced for that temple is that a new president was announced earlier this year for the Asuncion Paraguay Temple, which has been closed since November of last year for renovation, but for which, as far as I know, the renovation process has not yet begun almost a year later.

It will be interesting to see what happens in that regard. I continue to monitor all of these developments and will pass word of them along to you all as I receive it. That does it for this post. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated. Thank you for the privilege of your time.

BREAKING NEWS: Artist's Rendering Released for the Pocatello Idaho Temple

Hello again, everyone! Breaking news has again been published by the Church. In this release, the Church has shared the official artist's rendering for the Pocatello Idaho Temple. I am no expert in temple matters, but I would imagine that this opens the possibility that the temple in Pocatello is likely to have a groundbreaking within the next 3-9 monoths. It joins the Bangkok Thailand Temple (which had an artist's rendering announced earlier this year).

The First Presidency has noted that construction on that temple is anticipated to begin at some point next year, and will take between 2-3 years. The site for the temple has been confirmed as being east of Satterfield Drive and Butte Street in Pocatello in the area known as Crestview Estates - Division 2.

It is interesting that construction is anticipated to begin next year on that temple. I would anticipate therefore that the Bangkok Thailand Temple will have a groundbreaking before the end of this year, and that the Urdaneta Philippines and Saratoga Springs Temples might also have a groundbreaking by the end of this year.

So within the next 4-7 months, we could see groundbreakings for each of these four temples. Either way, this is awesome news, and I was grateful to pass it along to you all. I continue to monitor any and all temple news, and will do my level best to pass word of those developments, along with any general Church news, along to you all as I receive it.
