Jake is a senior in high school who also plays the baritone sax. He was an atheist for a few years and was looking online and came across the Baha'i Faith. He shared with me that the Faith makes sense to him and is what he has believed all his life. He shared that there is truth is all religions; one is not better or more important than another. He found the Faith "captivating" and he is happy to be part of something. His mother is very supportive of his discovery.
He understands that Baha'u'llah is the most recent Manifestation and that another will come "ere a thousand years". We discussed the importance of prayer and reading from the Holy writings. We discussed the three obligatory prayers. I told Jake about the youth gathering scheduled for his area, and encouraged him to attend.
He is now enrolled as a member of the Baha'i Faith.
