The Ciudad Juárez Mexico Temple is located in the border city of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, and serves about 12,000 church members in northern Mexico and the adjacent U.S. state of Texas. About 1,700 members attended the groundbreaking ceremony on January 9, 1999, and after the temple was completed over 25,000 people attended a week-long open house. LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the Ciudad Juárez Temple on February 26–27, 2000, and the dedication ceremonies were attended by approximately 8,100 members from El Paso and Juarez.
