At the close of October 2022 general conferencePresident Russell M. Nelson announced 18 new temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including four in metropolitan Mexico City, Mexico.

In his concluding remarks of the Sunday afternoon session, President Nelson first announced the following 14 locations for new temples:

  • Busan, Korea
  • Naga, Philippines
  • Santiago, Philippines
  • Eket, Nigeria
  • Chiclayo, Peru
  • Buenos Aires City Center, Argentina
  • Londrina, Brazil
  • Riberão Prêto, Brazil
  • Huehuetenango, Guatemala
  • Jacksonville, Florida
  • Grand Rapids, Michigan
  • Prosper, Texas
  • Lone Mountain, Nevada
  • Tacoma, Washington

But he didn’t end there.

“We are also planning to build multiple temples in selected large metropolitan areas where travel time to an existing temple is a major challenge,” he continued. “Therefore, I am pleased to announce four additional locations near Mexico City where new temples will be built.”

The four are:

  • Cuernavaca, Mexico
  • Pachuca, Mexico
  • Toluca, Mexico
  • Tula, Mexico

‘Focus on the temple’

Before announcing the new temple locations, President Nelson showed a clip from the upcoming season 4 of the Church’s Book of Mormon Videos — a depiction of the Savior Jesus Christ appearing to the Nephites.

“It is significant that the Savior chose to appear to the people at the temple,” he said, emphasizing that the temple is “His house” and “filled with His power.”
