Updates from Eastern Europe Subregion By Jack Corley Following the victorious completion of World Summit 2020 and the CheonBo events in Korea, our brothers and sisters of Eastern Europe began the new Cheon Il Guk year with a spirit of hope and optimism. Everyone was inspired by the level of attendance at the summit and the extraordinary preparations and welcome in Korea. We also were amazed by how close we came to having everything canceled due to the coronavirus. All the events in Korea were the culmination and the fruits of True Mother’s seven-year course since the passing of our True Father. True Mother has spoken many times about saving all the 7.6 billion people on the earth. With 170 nations represented in the Korean events, we could say that True Mother shared her love and blessing with the whole world and all the countries and populations that the participants represented. As a follow-up to the Vision 2020 events, we in the Eastern Europe subregion began preparations for a successful 2020 and adjusted our vision toward 2027. The following report highlights some of the activities that have taken place, with that goal in mind. From 7 to 11 March, our regional headquarters in Moscow was the site of five consecutive days of meetings. There was a one-day meeting for Russian National Council, a one day meeting with Russian and Belarusian leaders, a one-day FFWPU-Russia Heavenly Tribal Messiah workshop for VIPs, a two-day assembly of blessed families of Russia, and a one-day workshop of Moscow CARP. In other countries in our region, the European STF team worked busily in Moldova, reaching out and witnessing and also appearing on a very positive TV broadcast. In our Strategic Nation of Albania, outreach continued to the VIPs who attended the programs in Korea. With the support of Dr. Katsumi Otsuka, Gani Rroshi is consolidating UPF work in Albania and nearby Balkan states. The newly appointed FFWPU-Albania leader, Manjola Vasmatics, visited communities around the country to encourage and guide the youthful movement to expand and develop witnessing and education. I myself visited Riga, Latvia, in late February to conduct a Baltic nations leaders meeting for the national leaders of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. During March, in honor of International Women’s Day, WFWP chapters organized special events in celebration of women. Also during March, we confirmed the appointment of new national leaders in three countries—in Russia, Alexei and Olga Saveliev; in Albania, Manjola and Gabor Vasmatics; and in Latvia, Janis and Kermena Vjaters. Ukraine was doing outreach through its one-year leadership training program and also was in the midst of a 21-day workshop in Poland when the participants had to return home due to the coronavirus. Likewise, the participants of the one-year ILTP program organized by the regional headquarters had to shorten their visit to Thailand and Cambodia and return home, due to the virus. The biggest challenge we now face is the onslaught of the coronavirus. This was something we had not expected or planned for, and as a result, has forced many changes in our lifestyle and activities for the foreseeable future. My personal view is that we are in a time similar to the Passover time in ancient Egypt, when the Jewish people who painted their doorpost with lambs’ blood were spared by the Angel of Death and then could make their dramatic march through the Red Sea to the land of Canaan. I feel that the whole world is going through a Passover just prior to moving toward Cheon Il Guk. The financial and logistical challenges that this pandemic poses will be a test for all of us. But I feel that with God, True Parents, and our knowledge of the Principle, we can turn this situation into an advantage for Heaven.

by Rev. Won Pil Kim

We know Rev. Won Pil Kim as one of Father’s very first disciples. Yet he would say that many joined Father before he did, but that many were lost during the Korean War; and that he was fortunate to be able to come south with Father. The humble and kindly Rev. Won Pil Kim showed extraordinary faith in the earliest years of the movement, in the 1940s and 1950s when True Father was virtually alone, gathering just a few members. Because Rev. Kim’s heart was open, he inherited great wisdom from True Father, and when, later on, he was assigned to leadership positions, his words to the members reflected this.

From a talk given on July 11, 1986 in Frankfurt, West Germany

This morning I would like to speak about the manner of bequeathing and inheriting. In the field of science, in our daily activities, and in our life of faith as well, the process of give and take is repeated constantly. For example, in a family the first generation passes its heritage on to the second generation, which thus inherits the family…

    Ruiko Friesacher: I am very happy that I could attend the Japanese 7days WS in Turkey from 3rd to 10th of March. Since 10 years I did not hear DP lectures in Japanese. The hotel was located by Black Sea and it was very beautiful at the sunrise and sunset.

    There were 110 brothers and sisters from all over Europe (around 10 brothers). The Japanese sisters from Italy could not come because of Corona Virus, but they supported us through prayers.

    I could meet some sisters who I worked together about 40 years ago, and I also to know many sisters who I had not met before. We had 10 teams and ate lunch together and shared our experiences.

    There were 2 lecturers, Mr. Nakamura who had experiences in U.S. for 10 years and Mr. Obata who worked in CARP for a long time and from 2018 became lecturer in WS place. I was very impressed about the value of TP, specially 7 years course from 1960 to 1967.

    On Feb 1960, True Mother had a dream that time was coming and she had to be prepared. She met True Father on 26th of Feb. when she was 17 years old.TF had the interview with her for 9 hours. He asked her about the Bible, her faith, attitude, talents (painting) and so on. TM answered very honestly and clearly. When True Father chose True Mother as his bride, everybody was very shocked and surprised because she was very unknown and very young.
