This makes me so incredibly grateful for the temples that are so close to me here in Utah. On my mission, I was the furthest away that I have ever been from a temple in my life. The record was 18 hours, when I served in Jaén (or 24 hours, if you count our P-Day trip to Kuelap). Soon though, there will be a temple closer to my wonderful Peruvian Saints. In 2008 President Monson announced that they would be building a temple in Trujillo, about 3 hours south of Chiclayo. They broke ground for it while I was in Tumán over a year ago (Sept 15, 2011 to be exact.) To my knowledge, they haven't officially started construction on it yet, but I hope they will soon. It is going to be a beautiful place, just like every other temple. Except this one will be in Trujillo :)
This is what the temple in Trujillo will look like one day. I love it.
