The power of Anna's Presentation

The friends in the Triangle NC (A) cluster are witnessing how their teaching efforts are enhanced with the use of “Anna’s Presentation” from Ruhi Book 6. Here are two brief but moving accounts (note also how children’s classes have helped prepare the ground for the teaching):

“During a collective teaching activity in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood in Carrboro, a woman embraced the Faith after Anna’s presentation was shared with her in Spanish. She is the mother of three children who have participated in Bahá’í neighborhood children’s classes. After her declaration she expressed an eagerness to share her newly found Faith with others and teach.

“. . . on Feb. 2, during an expansion phase of the cluster’s most recent cycle of growth, a collective teaching campaign using Anna’s presentation was held in McDougald Terrace in Durham. The community is a predominantly African American neighborhood where Bahá’í children’s classes have been running steadily for more than five years. Results included a man who not only readily declared his belief in Bahá’u’lláh’s Revelation, but was also enthusiastic to share Anna’s presentation with his nephew.”
