UPDATED: Specific Estimates for Known Temple Events in the Near Future

Hello again, everyone! Although I am still planning on publishing the latest apostolic statistics on this blog this upcoming Sunday (in addition to providing coverage throughout this weekend on the Durban South Africa Temple dedication), based on my latest updates to my temple construction progress report, I have also taken time to update my specific estimates for know temple events in the near future. A first-time preliminary note I have added to that indicates that the estimates are based on what is currently known about the progress (or lack thereof) on certain temples, and that future projections are subject to change based on what changes going forward. As the preliminary note also explains, the timing of all such events is subject to confirmation in every detail through official announcements directed by the prophet, as the only one authorized to ascertain the Lord's will on that subject. That said, although this year will see half as many temples both dedicated and rededicated (3 and 3 versus the 6 and 7 respective dedications and rededications of temples last year), from 2021-2024, the number of temple dedications that are known will more than make up for the fact that 2020 will be a relatively slower year in that respect. I previously mentioned my hope that, before the end of this month, arrangements for the open house and dedication of the Rio de Janeiro Brazil Temple will be officially announced, along with the arrangements for the groundbreaking of the Auckland New Zealand Temple (the latter of which I currently believe will occur prior to the weekend of the April 2020 General Conference).

For myself, I will be sure to monitor my available resources for all temple developments and will do my level best to ensure that I bring such updates to you all as I become aware of them, and that also applies to all Church news updates. That does it for now. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated, on any post at any time, as long as such comments are made in accordance with the established guidelines. Thank you for the privilege of your time. If you enjoyed what you read here and would like to stay informed of newly added content, please feel free to subscribe. 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.
