Colombian Baha’is release open letter for peace
25 September 2016
CALI, Colombia — The Baha’i community of Colombia has released an open letter appealing to all Colombians to seize an “historic opportunity” and work for the cause of peace. The letter comes in advance of the signing of a peace deal between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) on 26 September.

The agreement is a major milestone on the path to peace in Colombia, which has suffered more than fifty years of violence in the world’s longest continuous armed conflict.

Cambodian Temple progress inspires collective action
16 September 2016
BATTAMBANG, Cambodia — It has been eight months since construction work started on the local Baha'i House of Worship in Battambang.

Since the groundbreaking in November of last year and the completion of the earthworks in March, access roads have been built, ponds have been dug, and foundations laid. Construction of the central edifice has also begun and is well underway. Its design was unveiled on 17 July 2015.

New video footage, showing progress of the construction process as well as a tree-planting project, is available above.

Parallel to the construction work have been a growing number of activities that are contributing to the spiritual and material progress of communities in and around Battambang. Inspired by the House of Worship, activities have multiplied and a spirit of prayer and devotion has increasingly permeated the area.   Full story HERE
