Letter of 21 May 1957
21 May 1957
To an individual believer
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
He has read your letter and the sheets of correspondence with the European Teaching Committee which you enclosed, and he feels that you are not seeing the situation in a clear light; according to the Administrative Order laid down by the Master it is the bodies responsible for the work who bear the full responsibility. Now that you have in full detail acquainted the European Teaching Committee—and through them the American National Spiritual Assembly—with the situation as you see it, your duty is done, and you should stop worrying over the Cause there and leave the entire matter to the new National Spiritual Assembly for Scandinavia and Finland. In fact, as this entire situation has upset you so deeply, he advises you to pioneer elsewhere, if not in Europe then on the Home Front in Canada, where the need is also great. As the European Teaching Committee is willing to pay your fare home he thinks this may be the best plan for you. As I said, Canada needs workers very much at this time.
He deeply appreciates the spirit of service which animates you, and will pray for the success of your future work for our beloved Faith.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved bless your efforts, guide your steps, and aid you to promote the vital interests of His Faith,
Your true brother,
