"John … thanks so much! I received your book on Saturday and read it immediately. AWESOME! Of course, since I know you, it was that much better.

"...'Every Foreign Land', a personal story of teaching, traveling throughout North and South America, meeting Hands of the Cause of the Baha' Faith, pioneering and working in foreign lands is a rich account exposing a gentle servitude, refreshing in its simplicity, profoundly felt and humorously expressed. A most excellent adventure recommended to all and giving us old timers a pang or two of nostalgia.
"... is pleased to let you know that review has been completed for your book manuscript, Every Foreign Land. ... We would pass along to you that reviewers found your story highly enjoyable as well as informative and inspiring, drawing quite a picture of that era in both the U.S. Bahá’í community and in the pioneering field in South America. Whatever ensues with respect to your plans to publish it, we hope that you will make the manuscript in some form available to both to the U.S. Office of International Pioneering and to the Ecuadorian Bahá’í community."
