During the past five years, the number of sacred houses available to members of the Church has doubled under a temple-building program given impetus by President Spencer W. Kimball and continuing under President Ezra Taft Benson. Some 259,268 Church members received their own endowments in the five-year period beginning with 1981 and ending at the close of 1985. During that same period, endowments were performed for 22,136,404 people who had formerly lived in mortality.
