On the Direct Teaching Successes of the 1970's: Baha'is Savor the Memories

Vahid and Jeannette's site continues to be a wealth of information, both current and historical, to inspire the Friends in their teaching. They outline current content in the following. -gw
Dear Friends,

We are so thrilled to see so many successful teaching efforts all over, and as they become available to us we will share them to the extent that is possible, but for now we are happy to share with you a story of direct teaching on the Navajo Reservation in the 1970’s. The story is dedicated to our youth and children and describes how direct teaching was done then at Window Rock, heart of the Navajo Nation; how Chester and Ben Kahn made home visits to influential leaders of the Navajo Nation; how Howard McKinley, an old Indian Medicine man, who held a great station among his people, being one of the tribal leaders serving on the Indian Council, became a Bahá’í and addressed his people about the Faith.
