Prepared by FFWPU Brazil
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, fifty leaders participated on behalf of the 436 participating members across Brazil. The representatives kept the required health and safety measures by wearing masks and sitting at a distance from each other throughout the workshop.
The first part was the opening ceremony, which highlighted important messages from leaders in Latin America. This first part was webcasted through Zoom so as to give participants the chance to listen to the messages. The ancestor liberation and Blessing ceremonies, however, were not webcasted.
The first leader to speak at the opening ceremony was the national leader of Brazil and head of Sub-Region 1, Rev. Sasaki Koichi. Next to speak was Rev. Kim Sang-seok, chairman of FFWPU Heavenly Latin America. Rev. Kim emphasized the importance of the Cheonbo workshop. Lastly, Rev. Kim Seong-nam, head of the HJ Heaven and Earth Cheonbo Training Center Heavenly Latin America Chapter, gave the opening message.
The workshop program went in the following order: the opening messages, chanyang session, ancestor liberation and ancestor Blessing ceremony. Participating brothers and sisters were greatly moved and some also testified about their spiritual experiences.
This was a wonderful moment that was conducted on the foundation of Cheon Il Guk; participants liberated and blessed their ancestors up to the 430th generation, realizing and further expanding change of lineage not only physically but spiritually as well.
Through this special workshop, blessed families and members offered their resolution to Heavenly Parent, reaffirming their determination to complete their missions as heavenly tribal messiahs.
I would like to first convey my gratitude to Heavenly Parent and True Parents. I feel like this is the best thing that has happened to our country ever since the pandemic. My sincere gratitude goes to True Parents for their love and grace in enabling this workshop to happen amidst such difficult times. This workshop became a time of repentance and gratitude for me. By becoming spiritually refreshed, I believe we will be able to complete our vertical and horizontal missions as Heavenly Tribal Messiahs. We were empowered with much energy for Vision 2027 as well. Though the workshop was short and conducted online, it felt like we were participating in the workshop in person. It was indeed an honor to be given the opportunity to represent my brothers and sisters across Brazil for this sacred event.
