Dear Co-worker: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Benelux countries , pp44-5
Anita Ioas, 2 September 1946
Dear Bahà’i Sister:
Your letter of August 9th was received, and our beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer it on his behalf.
He was delighted with your suggestion that you enter the European teaching field at this important juncture, and fully approves of your going.
Your dear family has been and is so constantly active in the service of the Faith, and your labours are deeply appreciated by the Guardian. He followed your previous pioneer work, and admires the spirit of devotion that prompts you to again go out in this important field.
Please give his loving greetings to your father, and assure him he is often remembered.
As to the place you will be able to render the greatest service in Europe: that is a matter for the European Teaching Committee to advise you on. If Honor Kempton can manage to go with you, without weakening the work in Alaska, it would be very nice for you both.
You may be sure he will pray for your success in this noble service you are undertaking.
With Bahà’i love, R. Rabbání
I am delighted to hear of the plan you have conceived, and I pray from the depths of my heart for your success and the realization of every hope you cherish for the work you will be undertaking. You will be enriching the record of service associated with your dear family, and particularly your dear father whose outstanding services in connection with the first Seven Year Plan47 will ever be remembered with joy and gratitude. Your true brother, Shoghi
