5 August 1952
To the believers who attended the first Junior Youth Session, July 3 1952, at Louhelen
Dear Bahá'í Friends:
The beloved Guardian was very pleased to see so many young people gathered for your sessions, and he has instructed me to answer your letter to him on his behalf.
During the next ten years, following our Holy Year so soon to begin, a tremendous amount of Bahá'í pioneer work must be done all over the world. Although there will be many of the older, more experienced friends going out to serve, he feels that the stirring tasks that lie ahead in difficult countries and climates are, par excellence, the kind of work young people can do.
He, therefore, urges you to seriously consider the type of profession or rade that might ensure you a post in a pioneer field in Africa, or the Pacific Islands, or Asia, in which you could earn your living while serving the Cause as well. It is a great challenge, and a great opportunity offered your generation, and he looks forward to your future exploits in the service of Bahá'u'lláh with hope and confidence.
He will pray for you all, you may be sure.
With Bahá'í love,
May the Almighty bless, guide and sustain you always, remove all obstacles from your path, and enable you to further the vital interests of His Faith in the days to come.
Your true brother,
