Forever Servants of Bahá’u’lláh

The Mansion of Bahjí. Artist: Keith Eldridge

A life of service to Bahá’u’lláh is a never-ending journey. Keith and Janet Eldridge, through the telling of a fellow community member, share how their love for Him has shaped their lives over the past 70 years and will continue to do so in the years to come.

Keith and Janet Eldridge are the oldest Bahá’ís in Sussex, N.B. at the ages of 97 and 93. Keith became a Baha’i in 1947 and Janet joined the Faith eight years later. Since then they have traveled to China three times to teach the Faith and have said they would like to travel to China again, but, now in their 90s, have chosen to stay in New Brunswick, much to the joy of their fellow community members.

Mr. Eldridge is a renowned artist whose work has been greatly inspired by the Faith, including paintings of the Shrine of the Báb and the Mansion of Bahjí. They continue to remain active in the Faith, often opening their home for children’s classes and sharing what they have learned through their many years of faithful service to the Cause.
