When I mentioned the announcement of the Payson Temple last week, I said that it appears that Mapleton would remain a part of the Provo Temple district. I was wrong. I learned yesterday from our high councilor that Mapleton will be part of the new temple district.
The address for the new temple is only 14.3 miles from our house. The Provo temple is 10.1 miles from our house.
Last quarter, the Provo temple saw a 20 percent increase in ordinances performed. That is the largest growth in a quarter ever recorded in this dispensation. Great things are happening in Utah County. We have much to be grateful for. I am very excited.
