The newest temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Africa opened to the public Tuesday, ahead of a dedicatory service in April.
The Kinshasa Democratic Republic of the Congo Temple, which will be the fourth operating temple in Africa after it is dedicated, will be open to the public through March 30 daily, except on Sundays. The dedicatory service will then be held on April 14, with a youth devotional on April 13.
Three other temples are currently operating in Africa — in Johannesburg, South Africa; Accra, Ghana and Aba, Nigeria. There is also another temple currently under construction in Durban, South Africa. Temples have also been announced in Harare, Zimbabwe; Nairobi, Kenya and Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The Kinshasa temple in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be the church’s 163rd operating temple, though 201 temples are in operation, announced, under construction or being renovated worldwide.
