Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple Wiki

Description

The Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple will be constructed on the site of the stake center for the Cocody Cote I’voire Stake in the commune of Cocody, known for its beautiful residential districts. The Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple will be the sixth temple built in Africa and the first built in the Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire).

History

Over the past few years, Church membership growth in Côte d’Ivoire has been among the highest in the world. The number of members and congregations has multiplied in this West African nation where twelve stakes and thirteen districts operate. Eleven of the twelve stakes are headquartered in the greater Abidjan region. In 2012, three of the five stakes in Côte d’Ivoire were among the top 25 in the Church in the percentage of adults submitting family names for temple ordinances.

The Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire) is home to approximately 20 million people including over 22,000 members of the Church. Missionary work officially began in Côte d’Ivoire in 1988. Church members in Abidjan, the country’s largest city, currently attend temple services in Accra, Ghana, which is a twelve-hour drive.[1]

Announcement

On April 5, 2015, President Thomas S. Monson announced the construction of Ivory Coast’s first temple during the Sunday Morning Session of the 185th Annual General Conference.

Groundbreaking

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple has been announced for Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. Attendance at the services is by invitation only, but the general public is invited to view the proceedings live at local meetinghouses. The groundbreaking will be performed by Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.[2]
