BREAKING TEMPLE NEWS: Arequipa Peru Temple Open House to Begin on Friday; Church President Russell M. Nelson To Dedicate Temple In December

Hello again, everyone! I am pleased to bring you all some breaking temple news right now. The open house tours for the Arequipa Peru Temple will begin on Friday, and, per information from the Church News and the official Newsroom, that temple will be dedicated on Sunday December 15, with Church President Russell M. Nelson presiding thereat. That dedication will occur just under a month after he returns from the Southeast Asia leg of his ongoing Global Ministry Tour. And it makes sense that he will dedicate that temple himself, as he is a prophet fluent in Spanish. The only question now is who might accompany him on that particular assignment, which we may find out more about in the coming days. With this announcement made, a few other reminders here: Within the next 12-15 hours, I will be publishing a birthday tribute to Elder Dale G. Renlund, who will be observing his 67th tomorrow. With the Arequipa Peru Temple open house commencing on Friday, VIP/Media tours will likely occur within the next day or two. And, as noted earlier in this post, Friday will also mark the start of President Nelson's one-week tour of Southeast Asia, during which time I anticipate we may receive more information about the Phnom Pehn Cambodia Temple.

Looking ahead to the rest of this month, Sunday will see both the rededication of the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple by Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and the day when, at 4:00 PM MST, Elder Gerrit W. Gong, also of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, will join the Primary, Young Men, and Young Women General Presidencies to share more information about the new Children and Youth program for which initial details were shared in the September 29 Fifth-Sunday broadcast.

And the last day of this month (Saturday November 30) will mark both the last day of the Arequipa Peru Temple open house and the day on which the Puebla Mexico Temple will have its' groundbreaking. At this point, I have no idea what (if any) other major Church news and temple developments might be reported before the end of this year, but I am hoping for at least a few more announcementns, including that at least one more temple (but perhaps even two or three) might also have their groundbreakings before the end of this year.

Whatever might happen in that respect, I am as committed as I ever was to bringing word of such developments to you all as I become aware of it. That does it for now.
