It is great Misagh to hear that. That is my view too! Get educated so you can help others. In my case I am suffering from a lack of patience. I do not plan to do consecutive years of study. Personally To get certfied to teach English for example is a goal I have then to go pioneering...Where ever. The five year plan does have a call for pioneers. Yet not underlined is the constant and ongoing call, regardless of which plan or phase we are in, for those to rise up and go pioneering. It is dis-heartening to see those beleivers who only strive to gain recognition through their academic accomplishments. NUTS However few they may be I hope they may read this dialogue and gain some real perspective on spreading the word of Baha'u'llah...litterally. Not to mention that work is worship...it is, but making a specific and selfless effort to go from one place to another carrying the banner of Baha'u'llah, is said repeatedly the most meritous of deeds.
