Associated Press 3Apr00 N1
By Hannah Wolfson: Associated Press Writer

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- In final comments made at the close of the LDS Church's 170th semiannual General Conference, President Gordon B. Hinckley announced plans to build six new temples, raising the total number of temples operating, under construction or planned to 121. 76 temples are currently in operation, with 2 more to be dedicated this week.

Three of the new temples are planned for the United States. Hinckley announced that temples will be built in Lubbock, Texas, Snowflake, Arizona and the Tri-Cities of Washington state (Kennewick, Pasco and Richland, Washington). The other three Temples, to be built outside the United States, will be in Aba, Nigeria; Asuncion, Paraguay and Helsinki, Finland.

Hinckley made it clear that building temples will continue as the Church grows, "And so we will go on building temples,'' he said in remarks following the final Conference speaker.
