Construction work on Baha’i Houses of Worship in two African communities is steadily progressing.
Less than two months since the groundbreaking for the national Baha’i House of Worship in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, excavation is complete for the main ring of the edifice’s foundations.
In Matunda Soy, Kenya, construction of the local House Worship has continued in spite of heavy rains and other difficulties. The central edifice is now at an advanced stage of completion. Work on the roof and decoration of doorways and external walls is underway. A reception center and other ancillary buildings on the site are also nearing completion.
In both places, the projects are inspiring activities of service and devotion on and off the temple sites.
A selection of photos can be viewed on news.bahai.org, providing a view into the work currently underway.
