Junior Youth

As I adjust to life here I've been getting acquainted with the local Baha'i community which is much larger than what I'm used to. One of my great joys over the last month or so has been helping to establish a Baha'i junior youth group. The participants are all about 11 years old and are full of energy and enthusiasm. Together we have started studying a book called Glimmerings of Hope as well as playing games, learning new prayers and planning a service project. The project they have chosen is to organize a food drive for the local food bank but they are all full of ideas for other service as well so I'm sure we will have much more on the go in the near future.
