BREAKING TEMPLE NEWS: Groundbreaking Held for Pocatello Idaho Temple

Hello again, everyone! I am pleased to be able to bring you news that the groundbreaking for the Pocatello Idaho Temple took place this morning as planned. Elder Wilford W. Andersen, who serves as president of the Church's Idaho & North America Central Areas, presided at this groundbreaking, accompanied by his counselors, Elders S. Gifford Nielsen and Brian K. Taylor. The size of this temple has been compared in size to some other temples, including the Meridian Idaho Temple that was dedicated roughly 16 months ago.

Construction of this temple is anticipated to take between 2-3 years to complete. Having noted that, I wanted to pass along some other temple information as well. A few of the sources I have available for some of the things I have passed along on this blog have revisited their thoughts about the time-frames for the completion of each of the three temples that are now considered to be in a "Construction pending" status. Particularly, those sources list the completion estimates for both the Pocatello Idaho and Urdaneta Philippines Temples somewhere between late 2021 and early 2022, while pushing the estimated completion for the Bangkok Thailand Temple to sometime in 2022.

I mention these changes because, depending on other tidbits I can glean elsewhere, I may need to thoroughly revisit my recently-offered altered observations about the more specific time-frames for the completion of each of these temples. Stay tuned for more on that as I figure it all out. In the meantime, I do continue to monitor any and all Church news and temple developments, and will do my level best to bring word of those you to all as I become aware of such updates.
