Monrovia Liberia Temple
There are over 17,000 Latter-day Saints spread throughout 58 congregations in Liberia.
- In 1985 Joe C. Jarwleh read the Book of Mormon and shared it with fellow members of the Temple of Christ Church, a group interested in early Christianity. When senior missionaries came to Liberia two years later, many members of this group were baptized. By 1989 a district was organized in Monrovia, but that December the First Liberian Civil War began.
- During the civil war, many members were scattered or killed. Some fled to other nations and built up the Church there. Others stayed and found ways to minister to each other through the conflict. The Saints endured faithfully through the conflict, and in 2000 the first stake in Liberia was created.
The Monrovia Liberia Temple is currently in the planning stages. No location has been announced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
