The Russia temple was announced at April Conference, 2018, so coming up on 2½ years...

Here's what I found on WeAreMoreJesusyThanAnyoneElseEVER!.org:

  Russia Temple

"Planning and approval phase;
site location unknown;
city not yet announced;
groundbreaking not announced




"1 April 2018

  Construction Status

"The Russia Temple is currently in the planning stages. No groundbreaking date has been announced.

  Temple Rendering

"Renderings of the Russia Temple and site plan have not yet been publicly released.

  Temple Site

"No city has been officially announced for the location of the Russia Temple.  However, there are currently only three cities in the country where stakes have been organized: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Saratov.

  Temple Announcement

"President Russell M. Nelson made the historic announcement of Russia's first temple at the end of his closing remarks at the 188th Annual General Conference.

"No city was named as part of the announcement—only that it would be constructed in a major city yet to be determined. While serving as an apostle, President Nelson himself organized the first stake in Russia in the capital city of Moscow on June 5, 2011, in the 20th anniversary year of the Church being officially recognized by the Russian government.  There are over 23,000 members of the Church in Russia organized into three stakes and ten districts. (In 2019, the SLTrib had an article claiming there were between 3,500 to 4,500 active mormon

  Temple Facts

"The Russia Temple will be the fifteenth temple built in Europe and the first built in Russia.

"When the Russia Temple was announced, no city was named as part of the announcement as it had not yet been determined."

Is there ANY chance that after Russell swan dives into the CK, that the next Prophet, Seer & Revelationaryer will announce that the April the First, 2018 date proves that the revelation was in the spirit of the day?

Just be patient. In a few years the church will announce that the temple will be built in Moscow Idaho. Anyone who remembers it differently is not following the prophet!

Just announcing it with nothing in place to make it happen is enough to get the bosoms burning about the amazing growth of the church and its conquering of Russia....whether they build it or not.

If'n they don't, they could use the "god wanted a temple in Russia but the adversary was working against them" excuse, but then that really just say's satan is stronger than god. Somehow the members don't see it that way so it works for the church.

The idea is that even though it will be built at some point in the unspecified future, it was on my watch that it was announced!! Therefore I get the credit!!

I think it was about 2 1/2 years ago I also announced my double date with Scarlett Johansson and Margot Robbie.

No details on the swanky restaurant or hotel suite on the Vegas Strip yet, but it's going to happen!!
