Dear Co-worker: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Benelux countries , pp58-9
Local Spiritual Assembly of Brussels, 6 July 1948
Dear Bahà’i Friends:
Your letters to our beloved, with photos enclosed, and dated May 10th and 13th have been received, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
It gave him great pleasure to see the faces of the new believers in Belgium, and the formation of your first Assembly there is an event of great importance - however unobtrusive it may seem to have been in the eyes of your fellow-countrymen!
He urges you all to persevere, in conjunction with the dear American Bahà’is labouring with you, in your efforts to establish a sound, well- grounded, united and mature community of believers there, as this is the bed-rock on which all your future activities must rest.
You may be sure his loving prayers will be with you all in your historic labours.
With warmest greetings, R. Rabbání
Dear and valued co-workers,
I was delighted to receive your most welcome message and I rejoice at the great success achieved in Brussels. The Beloved is well pleased with your victory, and will no doubt, watch over you and guide your steps and enable you to achieve still greater victories. I will pray for you from the depths of my heart. Rest assured and persevere in your glorious task. Your true and grateful brother, Shoghi
