BARRANQUILLA, Colombia (ABC4 News) – The 161st LDS Temple was formally dedicated Sunday in Barranquilla Colombia by President Dallin H. Oaks, first counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The dedicatory sessions were broadcast to congregations of the Church within the temple district.

Before the first dedicatory session, President Oaks and members of the local Church leadership participated in the cornerstone ceremony. President Oaks explained placing mortar around the cornerstone block is symbolic that the temple is complete.

The Barranquilla Temple is the Church’s 161st temple worldwide and the second in Colombia, the first having been completed in Bogota in 1999.

Nearly 35,000 people visited the temple during a free open house November 3 through 24.
