On Why So Many Baha'is in Faraway Places: Why so many Baha'is in Phoenix?

Baha'is reside in more than 100,000 localities. Auki is one of them.
A question posed on Yahoo! Answers about 6 months ago: Why are there so many Baha'is on small Pacific Islands? An answer:
The Baha'i teachings and the life of Baha'u'llah resonate strongly in various cultures at particular times. About a decade ago, Guyana had the largest percentage of Baha'i population of any country. And Baha'is expect that efforts to reach out to neighborhoods around the world and share Baha'u'llah's teachings with people who formerly were strangers, will ultimately result in questions like yours that ask: "Why are there so many Baha'is in Phoenix, Arizona?" Or in Sakhalin Island? Or in Patagonia?
