Keep your eyes and ears open

At the Bahá’í House of Worship in Wilmette, IL, visitors can fill out cards to request more information on the Faith, on Bahá’í activities near them, to be put in touch with a local believer, etc.  The card also has a box that people can mark if they want more information on how to join the Faith.
When someone who visited the House of Worship from another part of the country filled out such an “interest card”, the regional seeker response coordinator for her region was notified:
Would you be willing to investigate further, either directly with __ or through your contacts at the cluster level, to determine if anyone has asked her about her interest in becoming a Bahá’í?  This is not an actual declaration, but we would also not want to avoid missing this important request of the seeker.
The regional seeker response coordinator later reported:
Thank you for prompting me.  I got a hold of __ and she said she wanted to become a Bahá’í, so I affirmed her.  A very receptive soul.
The registration was completed online.
