Letter received. Blessings upon blessings. -gw

Dear Baha’i Friends,

In response to your letter indicating your preferences for pilgrimage dates, we would like to inform you that you have been scheduled to come to Haifa for pilgrimage starting 13 April 2009 and finishing in the evening of 22 April 2009.


During this time, the celebration of the First Day of Ridvan will be commemorated on 21 April. To allow for the attendance at this Holy Day observance, the House of Justice has decided to extend the period of this pilgrimage by one day.

With loving Baha'i greetings,
The Department of Pilgrimage

The time will pass more quickly than you realize. There is so much that can be seen and done there, I wasn't able to do it all, though I certainly did the most important things. My pilgrimage journal is available on the web now; you can either read it for a preview of what to expect, or hold off on reading it until after your pilgrimage so you DON'T know what to expect.
