Temple Facts

The Kona Hawaii Temple was the sixth temple built in Polynesia and the second built in Hawaii, following the Laie Hawaii Temple (1919).

"And [there were] other choice spirits who were reserved to come forth in the fulness of times to take part in laying the foundations of the great latter-day work, including the building of the temples and the performance of ordinances therein."
—D&C 138:53–54
