Announcement of the Fairbanks Alaska TemplePresident Russell M. Nelson
, 17th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, announced
the Fairbanks Alaska Temple on Oct. 1, 2023, during the Sunday afternoon session of October 2023 general conference
. A house of the Lord announced for this east-central Alaskan city was one of 20 announced
by the Church — and the second for the state known as “The Last Frontier.”
When this sacred edifice was announced, Alaskan Latter-day Saint Sarah Buma
burst into “tears of joy,” she reported on social media.
“My mind has landed somewhere between the waters of Bethesda and the great rivers of interior Alaska,” Buma wrote. “My emotions are as ‘the rushing of great waters’; giving thanks for living water, a living Prophet, a testimony of the living Christ that keeps me vital, and deep gratitude that continually stirs, restores and heals me.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouVHuA_7wfs
