To the Bahá’ís of Ketchikan
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your loving letter of December 3rd was received by the Beloved Guardian. He has directed me to acknowledge it on his behalf. The contribution which you have made to the International Fund is greatly appreciated. Receipt is enclosed.
The beloved Guardian is hopeful the friends will arise, each and every one, with renewed vigor and spiritual power, to teach the Cause of God. Everywhere the goals of the Ten Year Crusade are being won, with exception of teaching on the Home Fronts. The Guardian hopes you will 31 be most active in this great spiritual upsurge in the teaching work, and win many seeking souls to the Faith.
The Guardian was very happy to learn of the enrollment of another (the third) Indian. 1 He welcomes these three into the Faith and sends them his loving greetings. He hopes they will arise and teach their own people. He will pray for them and for the success of their teaching work among their people.
He assures you all of his prayers and for the success of your teaching efforts.
He sends his loving greetings.
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas
