Temple in the Amazon
The Amazon is a remarkable place, and now the LDS Church has concrete plans to construct and dedicate a large Temple in the Amazonic Basin's main city of Manaus. Already, the Church has temples in the Brazilian cities of Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Campinas, Porto Alegre, and Recife. Church members from the Manaus region have to travel up to two days by bus to attend the Temple, so this will be a great blessing to many of those Amazonians.
I took this picture when we were in the Amazon a little over a year ago. Later, I will provide pictures of the temple and the construction site, as they become more readily available.
