Bahá’í Community of Ketchikan, Alaska
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your loving letter of August 15th was received by the beloved Guardian, and 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.
Spiritual success can be won today, only by teaching the Faith of God. The people are seeking, dying from spiritual thirst. The Bahá’ís must disseminate the Water of Life freely, so seeking souls may find eternal life.
If the friends arise with consecration, devotion, and zeal—so the Holy Spirit may descend through them, to those who are wandering the deserts of material chaos—they will be surprised at the victories which will be won.
The Guardian hopes you will take a most active part in this quickening of mankind. May the blessings of the Holy Spirit, and its confirming power be with you at all times.
The Guardian will pray for you, and for the success of your work. He sends his loving greetings.
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas 43
