AGUA AZUL, Colombia — In Norte del Cauca, a steady stream of developments continues to unfold as the community prepares for the completion of a local Baha'i House of Worship.

Although this area of the country has experienced decades of rich developments in the spiritual and material advancement of its people, the announcement in 2012 of plans to construct a House of Worship there have inspired surrounding communities to reach new heights of service, enrich the devotional aspects of community life, and strengthen the bonds of fellowship and unity.

Just released, new video footage highlights recent progress in the construction process, which began in January 2017.

Foundational work for the surrounding auxiliary structures has also been initiated. In time, these buildings will be painted in the bright colors traditional to buildings of the region.

Norte del Cauca is one of five localities designated by the Universal House of Justice in 2012 to have a local Baha'i House of Worship. The Temple is expected to be completed in early 2018.
