I'm glad to see the details as well.. Your ESTIMATES must be close for the Vienna Austria or East Europe areas. If growth continues at the 2016 rates, we'll CERTAINLY need a temple in that area in 5-10 years tops. Budapest Hungary is a possibility, if not Vienna.. (more stable wards/ history/ members in Vienna, though :)
