Pioneering


Ábdu’l-Bahá told a Bahá'í to prepare to go to India to teach the Faith. So he prepared by studying Indian culture, languages, etc. However, at the last minute, the Master changed his mind and decided to send him to America.
"But I thought I was going to India," said the Pioneer.
Ábdu’l-Bahá answered, "So did Columbus."
