First Temple Constructed in the Former French West Africa

The Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple will be the first temple constructed in the former French West Africa, a federation of eight French colonial territories that included Mauritania, Senegal, Mali (formerly French Sudan), Guinea (formerly French Guinea), Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), Benin (formerly Dahomey), and Niger. Ivory Coast (or Côte d'Ivoire in French) regained its independence from France in 1960. The temple's primary language will be French.

Construction Progressing on the Managua Nicaragua Temple

Cladding of the exterior walls of the Managua Nicaragua Temple is progressing. Plans to construct the temple were announced in April 2018, and groundbreaking services were held in November 2022. The country's first branch was created in the capital city of Managua on November 21, 1954—nearly 70 years ago. Today, there are over 100,000 members organized into 12 stakes and 4 districts.

The west cupola was added to the steeple tower yesterday, followed by the lantern and finial that went up this morning.

Excavating for the Ribeirão Preto Brazil Temple Foundation

An excavator works inside of a fenced area at the Ribeirão Preto Brazil Temple site, scooping out red soil where the foundation for the temple will be installed. Groundbreaking services were held almost three weeks ago to mark the commencement of construction on Brazil's thirteenth temple. The temple will be surrounded by parking on three sides and stand near an accommodation center.
