Saturday afternoon, M*’s webmaster Scott Barber emailed me a link to a Mormon Times article announcing a temple for Gilbert, Arizona.
My first reaction to the news was, “Wow!!”
Even today, I am still stunned and excited that another temple is to be built in Arizona. What excites me even more is that I will likely be in the new temple district. While an official site has not been announced, I spoke with someone who mentioned a location where the new temple is likely to be built: vacant land near Pecos and Greenfield.
Here is the link to the Mormon Times article announcing the new temple in Gilbert, Arizona.
“It is my personal priority to make sure members of the Church have access to the blessings of the temple,” said President Monson. “It is here where members learn of their divine origin and destiny; where they are strengthened spiritually as individuals and as families. Temples are sanctuaries from the storms of life.”
