A Year of Service Handbook for Volunteers

A practical, funny and inspirational handbook for everyone thinking about serving the Bahá’í Faith away from home.

When Denali Knight Weiler set off on her year of service in Ecuador she packed a suitcase full of bikinis and tanning oil, only to find that she'd be spending the first six weeks in the Andean city of Otavalo, surrounded by snow-capped mountains and woolly alpacas - not a sandy beach in sight! Her dream vacation in the tropics was not to be.

But what she did was even better: she began a period of service to the Bahá'í Faith that took her from Ecuador to Bolivia, the Native American Bahá'í Institute, Green Acre Bahá'í School and Swaziland. Now she has collected her insights into a practical, funny and inspirational handbook for everyone thinking about serving the Bahá’í Faith away from home.

Wondering where to go? What to pack? Worried about being homesick? Or eating the food? Thinking you might not manage living with strangers? And how about, well, um, facilities? Scared of teaching children or junior youth?

Denali's down-to-earth handbook will help you to ‘seize your moment, to make your mark on the destiny of humankind’ and to have a truly fulfilling year of service.

YOUR TRUE BROTHER
Eight letters from the Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith to Bahá'ís passing through their adolescent years, trying to discover their talents and potential.

To the challenge of questions such as 'Where am I going in life?' 'Who am I?', Shoghi Effendi answers boldly and in a straightforward way. 
He encourages the junior youth to commit themselves to the service of Bahá'u'lláh and to let their direction be dictated by the needs of the Faith, by the desire to do 'great, great deeds', and by the knowledge that their generation must provide the 'saints, heroes, martyrs and administrators of future years'.

Robert Weinberg, born in 1965, was a member of the first European Bahá'í Youth Council. 
He has been involved with the development of junior youth activities in the United Kingdom, serving on the first Junior Youth Department and later on the National Youth Committee.
