BREAKING TEMPLE NEWS: Brasilia Brazil Temple Rendering Released

Hello again, everyone! Courtesy of a comment from Eric S., a long-time reader of this blog who also comments fairly regularly, I am pleased to note that the Church has released the rendering for the Brasilia Brazil Temple. The official announcement sharing this information notes that project leaders will begin working with government officials in that city in the coming months to obtain the necessary approvals. But I am confident enough in the information from the release in question to venture an estimate that the groundbreaking for this temple will take place during the mid-to-latter part of this year, and based on a cursory analysis of the rendering, I'd venture a guess that construction on this temple might take anywhere from 2.5-3.5 years to complete, which would enable it to be dedicated in 2023 or 2024. This leaves just two of the temples originally announced by President Monson which have not yet had any official information announced, and I have no doubt that will change in the future. I am cautiously optimistic that, aside from today's announcement, and the anticipated announcement tomorrow of the open house and rededication information for the Washington D.C. Temple, that there could be at least 3 other major temple-related announcements made between now and the weekend of the April 2020 General Conference.

And in reference to that conference, a couple other notes: First, discussion has recently occurred on the threads of posts on the Church Growth Blog about whether the coronavirus outbreak that is currently devastating the world will impact either or both the April 2020 General Conference plans and the Summer 2020 Olympic games that will be held in Tokyo Japan. Unless I am very much mistaken about the information that was provided on both subjects through the KSL newscasts this evening, both events are, as of right now, anticipated to be held as scheduled. Time could change either or both, but that's where things stand in that regard at this moment, based on information reported by KSL earlier today. I continue to work as I can on my adjustments to my April 2020 General Conference predictions, in addition to monitoring all Church news updates and temple developments and will be sure to pass word of those along to you all as I become aware of such things.

And since it was due to the aforementioned comment on a previous post that I found out the information about the Brasilia Brazil Temple rendering, if any of you know of anything I may have missed, please do let me and the rest of my readers know via your comments on posts such as this one. That does it for now. Any and all comment 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.
