A temple was announced for the Kansas City area yesterday in General Conference. The district will likey include nine or 10 stakes in the area. The Church has announced the that property for the temple is secured, but has not indicated if it will be built on one of the previously dedicated temple sites in Missouri or on a new plot of land.
The stakes in the Kansas City area continue to grow. The newest stake was created back in 2004 and the Liberty Missouri Stake has the most congregations out of any stake in the area (nine wards and four branches).
