Bringing the blessings of the temple to the remote islands of Micronesia, President Russell M. Nelson announced the Yigo Guam Temple on October 7, 2018, during the last session of General Conference. The tiny island of Guam, a territory of the United States, sits in the western Pacific and boasts a population of 166,000 people. Missionaries from the Church first arrived in Guam in 1957, and membership has since grown to more than 2,500 Latter-day Saints.1
