Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your loving letter of March 16th has been received through the courtesy of Mrs. Tuttle.
We have prayed at the Shrines for the solution of your problems; that all obstacles may be removed from your path, and that your true field of Bahá’í service may become clear and evident.
As a general principle, the Guardian has established the order of importance in Bahá’í service as follows: First, Pioneering in one of the virgin areas of the Ten Year Crusade. Second, Pioneering in one of the consolidation areas of the Ten Year Crusade. Third, Settlement and Teaching in one of the goal cities of the home front campaign. This of 57 course would include developing the Faith in Communities where there is already a Group or isolated Bahá’ís.
The Guardian feels that it is advisable for every individual, after his own prayers and meditations and seeking of guidance, to consult with the appropriate committee appointed by the National Assembly. They are in touch with the ramifications of the Campaign, and are qualified to give sound advice.
So far as your personal affairs are concerned, the Guardian assures you of his prayers in your behalf, that they may be clarified for you. Of course the question of love and marriage is something that can only be determined by the individual.
So far as the publication of the pamphlet in Eskimo is concerned, it probably would be advisable for you to write the National Assembly on this important matter, asking them what the present status is, and if you can assist in any way.
With loving Bahá’í greetings, I am,
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas
