For over a century they had rejected Christianity

Our Beloved Faith is advancing and making significant progress throughout the world, specially during this auspicious period of the Holy Year, the Bicentenary of the Birth of Baha'u'llah, The Law of Huququ'llah (Right of God) is also reaching various corners of the world including the Baha'i community of Tanna which is an island in Tafea Province of Vanuatu, Pacific Ocean.

Tanna: The people of the village of Yapkisip were very strong in their customs and culture. For over a century they had rejected Christianity and followed their traditional beliefs. Due to a vision by one of their elders this past year, they are now all Bahá’ís. The Representative and the Deputy Trustee consulted that though they are new Bahá’ís, the laws are for everyone; and their approach with the education on Ḥuqúqu’lláh should be gradual. The Representative mentioned that the chief of the village attended the National Convention and was very touched by the presentation on Ḥuqúqu’lláh and now wanted to make his payment. They made plans to visit the village. They were welcomed with cultural dances and speeches. The Secretary of the new Local Spiritual Assembly said: “Welcome to the new Home of Bahá’u’lláh.” “In this village there is no Right or Left, there are no prejudices, all are welcome.”
