Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Anchorage
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your letter of June 25, 1954, with enclosure, has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was indeed happy to learn that, through the dispersal of the friends in Anchorage to three other cities, the goal set by the Alaska Teaching Committee for the last year was achieved. This is indeed most encouraging news.
The rapid expansion of the Faith in Alaska has delighted the heart of the Guardian. The way the believers have scattered in order to create new Centers, shows their great devotion and courage.
He is now looking forward to the time when the friends there will have their own Hazíratu’l-Quds.
Please convey the loving greetings of the Guardian to all the Alaska Bahá’ís; and assure them of his deep appreciation of their sacrificial services, and their determination to broaden the basis of their Faith in that country. All these efforts will hasten the day when Alaska will have its own National Spiritual Assembly.
His prayers are ever with the friends as they pursue their noble task.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
R. Rabbani 22
[From the Guardian:]
Assuring you of my loving prayers for the success of your deeply appreciated endeavours for the promotion of our beloved Faith,
Your true brother,
