Connecting contacts to core activities

These brief vignettes from the New London, CT (B) cluster show the high interest in core activities. The friends are inviting their contacts to core activities and quickly following up on requests.

G has an interesting teaching story! After the children’s class on last Sunday; he picked up his friend and brought him over to watch the video The Promise of World Peace and to ask questions about the Faith. His friend is a young single father like him. So G invited him to attend the next children's class which is this Sunday. Let's keep them in prayers.

In another town in the cluster:

Yesterday, one of our former neighbors saw us outside and came over to say hello. She told us that she remembered our invitation to come to prayers, but that she had moved away and was unable to come. However she has been saying prayers with the devotionals in mind, and asked at what time the gatherings are so that she can say the prayers "with" us in spirit.

Also, yesterday I received a phone call from a man who Bahá’í quote on He is very interested in exposing his son to all religions, and wants to know if there are children's classes in the area. I have called him twice and left a message for him with the information. I will keep following up and try to speak with him personally.
