Kansas City Missouri Temple dedicated

In an area of the United States hallowed by the sacrifices of Latter-day Saints in the late 1830s, President Thomas S. Monson dedicated the Kansas City Missouri Temple on May 6, the Church’s 137th operating temple.



Along with the St. Louis, Temple, there are no two temples in Missouri (and 14 Stakes)

While the Church did not mention the Missouri extermination order that legalized killing Mormons in Missouri (from 1838 to 1980) before the Civil War and the 14th Amendment superseded states rights to discriminate, the Governor of Missouri declared this "a time of healing"  There are 67,000 members in Missouri, the most in any mid-western state.
