On October 19, 2004 the Baha'i World News Service reported, "A message from one of the Baha'is who introduced the Baha'i Faith to Togo was a highlight of the jubilee celebrations held here. 'I love you all so much, pray for your spiritual growth and that you may continue in faith and teaching the Cause of Baha'u'llah -- the Cause of God,' wrote Mavis Nymon, 82, who now lives in the United States and was unable to attend the celebrations in this West African country. Ms. Nymon, originally from Fargo, North Dakota, was 32-years-old when she and 59-year-old Vivian Wesson of Chicago, Illinois, took the message of the Baha'i Faith to what was then called French Togoland on 2 May 1954."
