Here is an excerpt from an email from an individual who recently declared their belief in Bahá’u’lláh online The regional seeker response coordinator had first called them to affirm their declaration, and then later followed up with an email that provided more information about the Faith. What this email from a new believer makes crystal clear is the immense importance of the “conversation between two souls” emphasized by the Universal House of Justice in its Ridvan 2010 message. Such conversations can have far-reaching and lasting influence!
I want to thank you for the wonderful conversation yesterday! I was exhilarated for quite some time afternoon, and I find it quite interesting that my friend also telephoned you! I had not known that. After our lovely talk I came into my home beaming and enthusiastic and I imagine I perhaps piqued the interest of the others around me.
I cannot wait to begin exploration of all the materials within your email. Thank you again for your most loving welcome into this Faith. I am grateful to you for your time and joy and shall ever remember my first conversation with a Bahá’í member as being as a fountain overflowing with that for which I was longing, parched, for quite some time.
