Dear Co-worker: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Benelux countries , pp45-6
Melanie Humbert, 30 September 1946
Dear Bahà’i Sister:
Your letter of September 1st announcing the very good news of your intention to pioneer in Belgium reached our beloved Guardian, and he was delighted with this news.
He has been anxious now for very many years that the Cause should be really established there, and a permanent center formed. Now your departure promises the future development of such a center, and you should feel very proud to be able to undertake such a mission to your native land.
You may be sure he will pray for you, and that the doors may open, and your work meet with great success. He would also like you to report to him from time to time regarding your work there, and he urges you to keep in close touch with the friends in neighbouring countries.
With loving good wishes, yours, R. Rabbání
I am thrilled by the news you give and by your noble intentions to pioneer in Belgium. My loving and fervent prayers will accompany you in your glorious mission. Persevere and never feel despondent.
Future generations, if you be steadfast, will extol the work you will be undertaking, and the Beloved will reward you a thousand fold for your meritorious services.
Be happy and confident, your true brother, Shoghi
