There are more than 61,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ in Spain. This will be Spain’s second temple. The Madrid Spain Temple was dedicated in 1999. The first Spanish Latter-day Saint joined the Church around 1870. The Church was recognized by Spain’s government in 1968 when missionary work officially began in the country. Today, the Church has about 135 congregations in Spain.1
