Temples in Spain and in American Fork, Utah, Announced

Temple work and temples were frequent topics of general conference addresses, primarily because of the 1993 commemoration of the dedication of the Salt Lake Temple a century ago on 6 April 1893. Several General Authorities also referred to the San Diego Temple, scheduled for dedication April 25–30.

In addition, in his Sunday morning address, President Gordon B. Hinckley, First Counselor in the First Presidency, commented on the Church’s progress in preparing other previously identified sites for temples. He also announced, “A site in American Fork, Utah, which the Church has owned for many years, will become the location for another.” That site is approximately twenty acres at 900 North and 700 East. The land was once part of a Church welfare farm.

“Construction is proceeding on another in Orlando, Florida,” President Hinckley continued. “Hopefully sometime this year we shall break ground for the St. Louis Missouri Temple. A site has been secured in Connecticut, and yet another in northern England,” he continued. Architectural work is proceeding on projected temples in Bogotá, Colombia, Guayaquil, Ecuador, and in Hong Kong, and we are in the process of acquiring property in Spain and at least three other nations.”
