President Thomas S. Monson announced several new temples, including a second Mormon temple in Provo, Utah — the historic Provo Tabernacle, damaged last year by fire, will be restored and made into a temple.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will also be building temples in Paris, France; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo; Durban, South Africa; Barranquilla, Colombia and Star Valley, Wyoming.
