“O ye two advancers towards the Kingdom of God!…”

O ye two 1 advancers towards the Kingdom of God!
I supplicate God that ye may be enkindled, like unto two candles, with the light of the love of God; that [your children] may be educated under the shadow of the Tree of Life; that all the family may discover the way to the temple of the Lord and gather in the Kingdom of Abha.
You have written that the Cause of God is progressing in that city. Through the showers of the glad-tidings of the Cause of God a small mustard seed hath become a fruitful spreading tree—its roots in the hearts of the people. I pray, also, that God may in such wise cultivate and nurture that Tree that it cast its shadow over that vast and great country, distributing to all the fruits of divine knowledge and eternal life.
O ye two lovers of the Beauty of Abha! Ere long the Word of God will display a wonderful influence and finally that region (America) will become the paradise of Abha. Consequently, strive ye bravely that this aim may be accomplished in the near future. Striving means this: Ye must live and move according to the divine commands and behests, be united in loving with ecstasy and joy; do not take any rest but engage continually in the service of the Cause of God.
