As we hear more and more news of the situation of our beloved brothers and sisters in the Cradle of the Faith, our hearts long to do whatever we can to come to their aid. Along with much-needed prayer and ever-increasing victories in teaching, funds are needed to come to their defense. As the National Spiritual Assembly recently shared:
“This is a deeply distressing situation, and we know that the hearts of our entire community go out to these long-suffering and steadfast friends. We assure you that the Bahá’í International Community and the National Assemblies of the world, under the unerring guidance of the Universal House of Justice, are doing everything possible to bring this injustice to the attention of the media and the community of nations.” (National Spiritual Assembly, January 13, 2010)
How wonderful it would be for those of us in service to the Fund to engage in dialogue with our fellow believers about the various ways we can show our love and support for our brethren in the Faith residing in Iran, which includes sacrificing for the Fund. We are assured of the success of your consultations.
