Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

‘Abdu’l-Bahá contemplates future travel plans to further proclaim the Word of God

Mahmud's Diary
October 31, 1912
En route from Denver to Chicago

The Master remarked this morning:

It is now more than two years that I have been far from the Holy Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh. Now I must return. If God wills it, I shall make another journey in another direction according to a special program which I have already thought out, so that I can proclaim the Word of God in another way. Let us see what is the will of God. Now we are traveling from California to Chicago. Praise be to God that this journey has passed most pleasantly. At the time of leaving Haifa, I had several ailments and did not expect to cross oceans and plains with such ease and comfort and to make such a long journey.
