“Temple Update,” Ensign, Sept. 1999, 77
The First Presidency has announced plans to build two more smaller temples. When the Omaha Nebraska Temple is completed near the site of historic Winter Quarters, it will serve more than 40,000 members living in 14 stakes in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and South Dakota. The Perth Australia Temple, Australia’s fifth temple, will serve about 6,900 members living in four stakes in Western Australia.
In addition, ground has been broken for three previously announced temples: Guadalajara México, San José Costa Rica, and Veracruz México. The Church now has 57 temples completed and 57 temples in planning or construction stages, for a total of 114 temples.
