|Kyle, a little league baseball player, feels torn when he learns that his family's long-awaited pilgrimage date to the Baha'i World Center in Haifa, Israel, is coming up - it will mean his missing the All-Stars game. Although being in Israel is exciting, Kyle can't seem to stop thinking about everything that he's missing at home. To make matters worse, a lively smaller boy, Carlos, latches onto him almost as soon as the pilgrimage begins. The last thing Kyle wants to be is a babysitter!
But slowly the magic of pilgrimage takes root in his heart. As Kyle and his family visit the Baha'i holy sites around Haifa and Akka, Kyle learns what it really means to be a Baha'i and how he can serve others by doing what he loves most.
Gail Radley made her first pilgrimage with her husband, Joe Killeen, in 1997. She's looking forward to another with her daughter Jana. When she isn't dreaming of pilgrimage, she's teaching English at Stetson University in Florida.
