On October 12, 2019 in agreement with the prefecture of the city of Pucallpa, we conducted our first Family Festival at Municipal Theater of Pucallpa, Ucayali. We had around 1000 participants and among them we had 69 couples who received the blessing of marriage from True Parents.
Our program included an introduction to Family Value to create a sustainable peace given by Omar Arias, our National Leader. Then we had an explanation of the blessing ceremony. Which was followed by holy wine ceremony. After that we held the blessing ceremony and at the end couples received the blessing of marriage certificates.
This festival was a great time for us to respond to our True Parents and bless our people as the Heavenly Tribal Messiah and could share the value of the family taught by True Parents. The couples renewed their wedding vows joyfully. Some of participants even shed tears during the event.
In this family festival especially in the marriage ceremony, I was able to determine myself to strengthen my family more and be able to be an example for other people and in the future find hope. __Reynaldo Garcia
