Video and Model Details

Video

This video is a guess as to what the temple will like like. It is based on the render the church released, The sattelite Images available in Google Earth at the time of its creation, and includes speculations both by myself and Rick Satterfield of ldschurchtemples.org. None of it is intended to be official, and there is a very good chance that, like my first version of the video, I have much of it wrong. For this particular guess I started with the size and shape of the foundation on Google Earth images. Also was the assumption that a spot to the east of the temple is for a Residence to house the president, a practice increaingly common at Temples world wide.

Audio

I tried something new with this video that I think I will do from here on out. I pulled the sounds of native birds from various sources and mixed them over the top of other sounds that had been recorded either locally or near by. (Although, the tropical grasses sound is not actually “near by,” but there were not many close options that I could locate.)

Video

This video is a guess as to what the temple will like like. It is based solely on the render the church released, and includes speculations both by myself and Rick Satterfield of ldschurchtemples.org..  None of it is intended to be official, and there is a very good chance I have much of it wrong. For this particular guess I started with the size and shape of the Tucson Arizona Temple and modified it as necessary to fit the official render. (My earliest guess was based upon the size and shape of the Gila Valley Arizona Temple.)

Looking back on the render now, there are a few things I begin to suspect are just wrong. For one, looking at the sun direction in the render, I would suspect the temple faces either west or south, rather than the east direction chosen here. Only time will tell, and I will update this again when more information is available.

Description

The Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple is an announced temple  to be constructed in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The temple was announced in conjunction with temples to be built in Abidjan Ivory Coast, and Bangkok Thailand.[1]

Haiti is home to more than 22,000 Mormons (out of an overall population of nearly 11 million), 46 LDS congregations, and one mission. The Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple will be the first built in the country and the second built in the Caribbean, where missionary work officially began in 1980. Church members in Haiti currently attend temple services in the Santo Domingo Dominican Republic Temple, requiring nearly a day’s journey. The Church is growing steadily in this island nation where its third and fourth stakes were recently organized in 2012—all four stakes being headquartered in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area, which boasts well over two million residents.

History

Announcement

In the Sunday Morning Session of the April 2015 General Conference on 5 April 2015, President Thomas S. Monson announced the Church’s intention to build a temple in Port-au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti. [2][3]

At a stake conference held on Sunday, 12 March 2017, at the Centrale Chapel in Port-au-Prince, Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles announced that the Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple would be built on land immediately behind the chapel on Route de Frères.[4]

 

Groundbreaking

On July 13, 2017, the church announced that Walter F. González will preside at a groundbreaking, to signify beginning of construction, on Saturday, October 28, 2017. [5]
