Marion Jack Teaching Project
THE MARION JACK XII TRAVEL TEACHING PROJECT WILL BE GOING TO RUSSIA AGAIN
THIS SUMMER - WILL YOU BE PART OF IT?
Imagine an area three times the size of the United States. Imagine how
it must seem to have only about 2,000 active believers spread across that
For the twelvth time, the Marion Jack Project, under the sponsorship of
the Los Angeles Spiritual Assembly, will be spending July and August
assisting the Russian friends in their proclamation, teaching and
consolidation work. A four-day orientation will be held in Los Angeles
prior to departure.
The National Teaching Committee of the Russian Federation has written
that it needs many travel teachers with a wide range of skills. Certainly
not limited to, but particularly mentioned, are experience with Youth
Workshops and working with children.
They have also pointed out the importance of having mature (not
necessarily in age) serious Baha'is, with a firm understanding of the
tenets of the Faith; social skills; ability to deal with stressful
situations; flexibility; people who are prepared to uphold the high moral
standards of the Faith; freedom from all forms of prejudice; sensitivity
to and familiarity with cultural diversity, and the ability to give reasoned
explanations of the teachings and their relationship to the very real
problems facing Russians.
The needs are so great. Can you lend your assistance through joining the
project or helping to deputize worthy teachers who are free to go?
