The Words of the Verheyen Family
Dear Father and Mother,
Enclosed you will find one copy of the legal papers for the Anti-communist movement here in Holland. (Translated from Dutch into English) We can now work officially under the name "International Federation for Victory over Communism" (We use the English name).
The Queen of Holland has to give the final approval, but we can already officially work and be representative under the above name IFVC.
I am now informing all the newspaper and magazine in Holland about the WACL Conference in Japan and international blessing of the 700 couples in Korea.
We send our prayers to you in our homeland.
