President Russell M. Nelson spoke during the Sunday afternoon session of October 2022 general conference. He emphasized the importance of focusing on the temple, and he announced 18 new temple locations — including four in metro Mexico City. The following is a summary of what he said.

President Nelson’s conference talk summary

The heavens have been open during the five conference sessions. “I pray that you have recorded your impressions and will follow through with them.”

Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, stand ready to help. “I urge you to increase your efforts to seek Their help.”

Season 4 of Book of Mormon Videos is coming, including depictions of the Savior’s appearance to the Nephites. “It is significant that the Savior chose to appear to the people at the temple. It is His house. It is filled with His power.”

Never lose sight of what the Lord is doing — He is making His temples more accessible, He is accelerating the pace at which temples are built, and He is increasing the ability to help gather Israel.

The Lord is also making it easier for each to become more spiritually refined. “I promise that increased time in the temple will bless your life in ways nothing else can.”

President Nelson’s announcement of 18 new temple locations included four in the Mexico City metropolitan area.

“May you focus on the temple in ways you never have before. I bless you to grow closer to God and Jesus Christ every day. I love you.”
