Huehuetenango Guatemala Temple
During the 192nd Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, on October 2, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct a fifth temple in the highlands of western Guatemala. The Huehuetenango Guatemala Temple will join the Guatemala City Guatemala Temple (1984), the Quetzaltenango Guatemala Temple (2011), the Cobán Guatemala Temple (estimated 2024), and the Miraflores Guatemala City Guatemala Temple (announced 2020).
Guatemala is home to nearly 300,000 Latter-day Saints organized into 51 stakes and 12 districts. The first missionaries were sent to preach the gospel in Guatemala in 1947 with the first official church meeting of 66 congregants occurring the next year in a rented hall.
The Huehuetenango Guatemala Temple is currently in the planning stages. It will be built at 18 Avenida, Zona 4, El Terrero, Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Plans call for a single-story building of approximately 10,787 square feet.
