On October 3, 2021, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the La Paz Bolivia Temple at the October 2021 General Conference. This will be the third temple in Bolivia, where there are more than 212,000 members. The Cochabamba Bolivia Temple was dedicated in 2000 by President Gordon B. Hinckley, and the Santa Cruz Bolivia Temple was announced by President Russell M. Nelson in 2020. The temple will serve members in the cities of La Paz and El Alto, where the Church has seen significant growth.1
