Temple History

The Campinas Brazil Temple was the fourth temple built in Brazil and the second built in the state of São Paulo, following the São Paulo Brazil Temple (1978).

At the groundbreaking ceremony, Elder W. Craig Zwick of the Seventy and president of the Brazil Area remarked, "It was heartwarming to see about 50 buses that had been used to transport the people, and to see the people assembled on the hill; it was a multitude of faithful saints. The whole experience felt Pentecostal." Referring to a letter from an eight-year-old boy, who had worked hard to earn a $100 donation to help with the construction of the thirty new smaller temples announced in April conference, President James E. Faust observed that he and a man who sent in one million dollars that same day "[would both] be equally blessed for their faithfulness, regardless of the size of their donation."1
