Common Bonds

This story comes from a member of the Area Teaching Team in Florida.  She shares about the bonds created with a new neighbor as they explore their common religious backgrounds and questions about religion.   

We became fast friends and I told her about the Faith. Crystal was raised Roman Catholic so we had common backgrounds.  She had the same questions about religion as I’d had. As she learned more within just a few days she started asking me to sign a card!  I read her the story of the martyrdom of the Bab from Dawnbreakers and her eyes were as big as saucers.  Then I sat her at the computer and she declared online on my 40th Baha'i birthday!  
After the reflections gathering today we stopped at Crystal's parents’ house and I did some direct teaching with her parents.
