Mr. G.V. Tehrani was a well-known travel teacher and pioneer that settled in Sapporo in response to the call made by Shoghi Effendi, Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith, for the need of travel teachers to take in Faith to Hokkaido. Mr. Tehrani, now a widower, elderly and declining in health, arose to the task. He is known for his loving spirit which deeply affected those that came into contact with him and inspired and helped form a group of interested souls in Sapporo with newly declared believers, Mr. Sasaki and Mr. Shimatani. Along his many travels, Mr. Tehrani also spent time in New Zealand.
