Letter of June 27, 1942

He is greatly pleased to note the progress which the young Baha’is of India are making. Year by year he sees them growing stronger in faith, more conscious of their duties and privileges as Baha’is; more anxious to develop their knowledge of the teachings and their capacity to serve in the administration.
He strongly feels that now is the time for them to arise and follow the example of their American brothers and sisters, and begin, wherever possible, to undertake pioneer teaching work. The services rendered in this field by some of the American youth have been little short of astounding, and he sees no reason why the young believers of India should not win for themselves similar laurels in the path of Baha’u’llah.
Their beginning has been excellent, and he hopes that their future will be even more outstanding and praiseworthy.
