Dear Spiritual Sister:
Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of Feb. 14th. He always feels great pleasure to obtain some news from the friends of that distant land and he hopes and prays that through God’s blessings and your constant endeavours the Cause will develop in New Zealand and bring into its fold many sincere and devoted souls. 29
The news that we daily obtain from the different parts of the world bring in wonderful news of the progress of the Movement. The world is gradually appreciating the significance of this Movement which has been for so long misunderstood and denounced.
Yours ever sincerely,
Ruhi Afnan
[From the Guardian:]
My dear Spiritual Sister:
I wish to assure you in person of my prayers for you as well as the dear and unforgettable friends in Auckland who assuredly occupy a warm and abiding place in my heart. I eagerly await the news of the progress of their work, and trust and pray that the Almighty may guide their steps, and help them to surmount every obstacle.
