This house of the Lord in Cape Town will be South Africa’s third temple. The Johannesburg South Africa Temple and the Durban South Africa Temple are the other two. Some 69,000 Latter-day Saints worship in nearly 195 congregations throughout the country.

The Queretaro Temple will be the 14th in Mexico. Dedicated temples are located in Guadalajara, Hermosillo Senora, Merida, Mexico City, Monterrey, Oaxaca, Tampico, Tijuana, Veracruz, and Villahermosa. Two temples are under construction in Puebla and Torreon, and another temple was announced for Culiacan. Mexico is home to 1.5 million Latter-day Saints.
