The Board also expressed their heartfelt appreciation to Mr. Bruce Moore and Mrs. Donna Seyed Mahmoud whose term of service as Deputy Trustees has concluded.

In its letter to the National Spiritual Assembly announcing these appointments, the International Board of Trustees of Huqúqu’lláh shared the following regarding the functions of the Board of Trustees:

The primary function of a Board of Trustees is to educate the friends on the spiritual significance of the mighty law of Ḥuqúqu’lláh, enabling them to better appreciate that obedience to this law is “bound to attract divine confirmations, heavenly blessings and incalculable favours, and to promote the manifold interests of the International Bahá’í Community”. Appointing suitable Representatives and nurturing them to assist the Board in undertaking this task will be a vital element of this effort.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Board of Trustees directly ( or the Representative serving your community, with any questions. We know that you will join the National Assembly in remembering these distinguished servants in your prayers.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,
Karen McKye, Secretary
