Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Anchorage
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
The beloved Guardian is following very closely the activities in connection with the Ten-Year Crusade throughout the entire Bahá’í world. He has been encouraged by the reports reaching him from all centers.
The Guardian is happy over the development of the Faith in Alaska. Inasmuch as one of the very important goals of the Ten Year Crusade is the establishment of a National Spiritual Assembly for Alaska, the Guardian is hopeful that the friends will very seriously undertake the establishment of the Faith in the important cities, and the development of as many assemblies as possible. This can be accomplished best, of course, by “scattering” from the larger communities, and in settling in new areas.
The beloved Guardian was greatly encouraged to learn through a letter from Mr. and Mrs. Caldwell addressed to me, that at the Alaska State Convention on December 6th, a fund was started for the Hazíratu’l-Quds. The Guardian attaches great importance to the development of the Hazíratu’l-Quds even before there are prospects for the establishment of the National Assembly. The Guardian is arranging for a gift to this fund of $500 as his personal contribution. It will be sent you by the Treasurer of the American N.S.A. He hopes this will stimulate the friends to contribute to this important fund, as time goes on.
The beloved Guardian sends his loving greetings to all the friends in Alaska.
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas
