The Local Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Ketchikan
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your loving letter of July 15th was duly received by the beloved Guardian, and he has directed me to acknowledge it on his behalf. The contribution you have made to the International Fund is greatly appreciated. Receipt is enclosed herewith.
The Divine Confirmations are descending in torrents on those who arise to teach. At this critical time in the history of the Faith, teaching is the one Bahá’í service that is Confirmed.
The Guardian hopes that you will therefore arise with renewed effort to take your part in this great crusade now sweeping the world. America has been called upon by the Master to play the preponderating role in this great World Crusade which is moving forward with increasing momentum. Thus more Bahá’ís must be confirmed in the United States, that America may achieve its Spiritual Destiny.
The Guardian will pray for you and for the success of your teaching work. He sends you his loving greetings.
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas 42
