One response to “Program

  1. Dear Friends,
    What a wonderful program! Congratulations to the organizing team. I will be following the presentations/discussion with interest. We do not yet have broadband so will not be able to see U-tube. However, as much as I can, I will share the information and inspiration with the Baha’i community and other friends here. Dale and I will be with you in thoughts and prayers,
    Irma Allen
