“Thirty Temples to Be Built,” Ensign, May 1998, 103
Some 30 new temples are to be built “in Europe, in Asia, in Australia and Fiji, in Mexico and Central and South America and Africa, as well as in the United States and Canada,” announced President Gordon B. Hinckley at the conclusion of general conference.
“This will make a total of 47 new temples in addition to the 51 now in operation,” President Hinckley continued. “I think we had better add 2 more to make it an even 100 by the end of this century. … I will not give you the specific cities at this time. Stake presidents will be advised as property is secured.”
