Dear Co-worker: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Benelux countries , pp52-3
Melanie Humbert, 5 April 1947
Dear Bahà’i Sister:
Your letter dated March 14th was received by our beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer it on his behalf.
He was very happy indeed to see you are going to have a class of six interested persons there, and he assures you he will ardently pray in the Holy Shrines that you may find and confirm receptive souls and soon establish an assembly there.
This will be an historic achievement, as the Cause has never spread in Belgium before, in spite of the efforts of many Bahà’i teachers.
Your labours are deeply valued, and he will always be happy to receive news of the progress of your activities.
With warmest Bahà’i greetings, yours in the service of the blessed Faith, R. Rabbání.
Dear and valued co-worker:
I am so grateful to you for your magnificent response and I truly admire the spirit which animates you so powerfully in the service of the Faith. You are, I assure you, often in my thoughts and prayers, and I am so eager to learn of the progress of your activities and long for the news of the formation of a spiritual assembly in that country Persevere in your noble task, rest assured, be happy and grateful for the great privilege and honour conferred upon you in these days.
Your true and grateful brother, Shoghi
