3 New Temples in Arizona

On Saturday (24 May 08), President Thomas S. Monson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, announced a new Temple to be built in Phoenix, Arizona.  This is in addition to the two temples annouced for Arizona last month, 1 in Gila Valley, and 1 in Gilbert.  This will put 3 Temples in the Phoenix metro area.  I believe that this will be the first metro area outside of Utah that will have more than 1 Temple.
