“O maid-servant of God!…”

O maid-servant of God!
I rejoiced to read thy letter, for it indicated thy progress unto the Kingdom of thy Glorious Lord, thy wish to serve in His vineyard and thy faith in this Cause which has shed its light upon those regions.
Blessed art thou for having opened the door of thy 69 home unto the people to come and hear of the Kingdom.
The maid-servant of God remembered thee in her letter, mentioning thy great joy and progress in the Cause of thy Lord.
Verily, I pray God to make thy home a center for the radiation of light and the glowing of His love in the hearts of His people. Know that in every home where God is praised and prayed to, and His Kingdom proclaimed, that home is a garden of God and a paradise of His happiness.
