Letter of 20 November 19341

20 November 1934
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Your welcome message dated November 4th is just at hand, and its perusal has, as usual, greatly cheered our Guardian’s heart. He feels ever so grateful to you for the remarkable spirit and manner 28 in which you are collaborating for the further consolidation of Bahá’í administration in your locality. Your painstaking labours to this end are being surely rewarded and guided by Bahá’u’lláh Who, as so often promised in His writings, will sustain and bless all those who arise to promote His message, and whom, no consideration whatever, deters from serving His Cause.
Shoghi Effendi is specially pleased to realize that you are in such a close touch with the friends in other parts of Germany, and in particular with those two indefatigable and devoted servants of the Cause Mrs. A. M. Schweizer and Miss A. Köstlin. Their frequent and warm visits to Gôppingen are surely of an incalculable benefit to you all, and it is hoped that by their means your centre will come to play an increasingly important role in the spread of the Teachings, as well as in the general administration of the Cause in Southern Germany…
[From the Guardian:]
Dearly-beloved co-workers:
Your most welcome letter rejoiced my heart and served to remind me of the spirit of devotion, of determination and zeal that animate the believers in that promising country. I will no doubt continue to pray for you from the bottom of my heart, that you may each and all arise to diffuse far and wide the fragrance of this wondrous Revelation and to establish its truths in the hearts of your fellow countrymen.
Your true brother,
1. to the Bahá’ís of Gôppingen   [ Back To Reference]
