Dates for Dedication and Open House Announced for Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple
Elder D. Todd Christofferson will dedicate this house of the Lord
The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the dedication and open house dates for the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple.
Peru, located along the northwest Andes range and Pacific coast of South America, is home to about 630,000 Latter-day Saints in nearly 780 congregations. The first congregation in Peru was organized in July 1956, and the first missionaries in Peru began preaching in August of that year.
The Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple will be the second in the city. The Lima Peru Temple, dedicated in 1986, was the third house of the Lord constructed in South America. Two other temples are in operation in Peru in the cities of Arequipa and Trujillo. There are also plans to build temples in the cities of Chiclayo, Cusco and Iquitos.
