Temple Announcement

On April 3, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Brazzaville Republic of the Congo Temple at the April 2022 General Conference. Brazzaville is the capital and largest city in the Republic of the Congo. This will be the nation's first temple. The Republic of the Congo has over 8,000 members in 29 congregations. The Church has been present in the country since 1990. The temple there will make access to the house of the Lord much easier for members of this central African nation. The Church is growing rapidly in the entire region. There are three temples in the neighboring country of the Democratic Republic of Congo.1
