Pioneering opportunity in Wichita Falls

A family from Wichita Falls, Texas, will be moving to Honduras this month as International Pioneers. While they’re teaching school at the El Alba Bilingual School in Siguatepeque, Honduras, Central America, they want to lease their Texas home to someone willing to help the C Cluster community. 

Per the email sent via Texas LSA secretaries:

“Attractive brick home (partially or fully furnished) of Bahá’í family is for lease for home front pioneers in Wichita Falls, Texas. It has four bedrooms, 1 ½ baths, large living room, carport, and updated kitchen. $650.00 lease for 9 or more months; this home is convenient to local Midwestern State University and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex as well as Oklahoma City, OK.  

This is a great arrangement for college students or military personnel assigned to the area. Wichita Falls, Texas is a C Cluster with a Local Spiritual Assembly that needs warm bodies. There are new Baha’is who need deepening too. Receptivity is high in this area for Bahá’í teachers.”

The family leaves for Honduras this month and will live outside the U.S. through mid-June 2010. If you are interested in this pioneering opportunity, contact your LSA secretary or us for further details.
