Letter of 7 December 19341

7 December 1934
Dear Friends and co-workers:
Shoghi Effendi was deeply moved by your beautiful message dated November 27th, and he has directed me to convey to you on his behalf the expression of his loving appreciation and gratitude for the sentiments of love, devotion and loyalty which that message expressed.
He was, indeed, so pleased to learn that you had gathered at the home of our dearly-beloved sister and co-worker Miss Johanna Hirsch, and that you had heard from her the story of her pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
It is his hope that you may also one day have the privilege of undertaking a similar journey and of visiting the Holy Shrines in ‘Akká and Haifa. 30
Shoghi Effendi is continually praying on behalf of each and every one of you, and is entreating Bahá’u’lláh that He may continue sending you His blessings and guidance, that as a result your efforts for the promulgation of His message may be crowned with success….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved of our hearts guide and strengthen you, bless your efforts, add to your numbers, remove every obstacle from your path, and deepen your knowledge of the fundamentals of His Cause, and the distinguishing features of His glorious Revelation.
Your true and grateful brother,
1. to the Bahá’ís of Gôppingen   [ Back To Reference]
