The series of 41 Baha’i conferences being held around the world continued this past weekend with gatherings in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Kuching, Sarawak, in Malaysia.

The 1,700 people gathered in Brazil and the 1,300 in Malaysia represented the largest Baha’i conferences ever held in those countries.

Members of the Baha’i Faith from Paraguay and Uruguay joined those from across Brazil for the Sao Paulo event, which, like the other conferences in the series, was called to provide Baha’is an opportunity to celebrate achievements in their community-building activities and also consult about plans for future work.
