Historic Achievements

[From the Guardian:]
The truly splendid and indeed historic achievements of the Indian believers during the concluding months of the first Baha’i century deserve the highest praise. The repeated and striking evidences of their high accomplishments invigorate, encourage, and excite the admiration of, their sister communities in East and West. They are holding aloft the standard of Divine guidance in a manner that cannot but evoke the unstinted praise and the unqualified gratitude of their brethren throughout the Baha’i world. The Beloved is well pleased with their magnificent record of service. I feel 109 truly proud of their stewardship of the Faith of Baha’u’llah, of the spirit which animates them, and of the steadfastness with which they pursue their manifold and ever-expanding activities in the service of this glorious Faith.
