  1. Hi Sonjel, I enjoyed this episode of The Journey West. Thank you for making it easily available. When I attempted to access the hyperlink in the paragraph – “You’ll find a treasury of articles about Abdu’l-Baha, the historical context surrounding His travels, and tributes to early believers: http://www.thejourneywest.org” I received the following message: “This site can’t be reached exit.sc’s server IP address could not be found.”

    Just thought I should let you know.
