April 20, 2018

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Thank you for you constant dedication and efforts to further Heavenly Parent and True Parents’ providence. We have some exciting news to share with all of you. Cheong Pyeong team is coming to the USA!

Currently, there are four locations planned for the USA, in the following dates:
New York – July 28-29
Washington D.C. – August 4-5
Las Vegas – October 27-28
Chicago – November 3-4

We are still working on registration and details of these events, but we wanted to make sure everyone knows of this great opportunity.

As you know, True Mother emphasized liberating our ancestors on numerous occasions. This and Tribal Messiahship are the two main responsibilities of Blessed Central Families at this time.

We would like to encourage all our families to participate. Liberating our ancestors and blessing them will greatly support each and every one of us in our Tribal Messiahs mission.

We know that many families have been actively liberating their ancestors, and many would like to continue to do so, but can’t always travel to Korea.  This is a great Blessing to America to welcome the Cheong Pyeong team, and make these efforts to fulfill our responsibility to Heaven and our ancestors.

Please take this time, while we prepare the registration and the announcement of the appropriate conditions, to review your own family’s records and make sure which generations you are planning to liberate and/or bless at this time.

Stay tuned for more information that will be available shortly.

God Bless you and your family,

ABOUT

From July 18-25, 2018 at IPEC, we will host a special Hyo Jeong Divine Principle workshop. The entire program will be offered in Japanese with English translation, so English-speakers are highly encouraged to attend!

The purpose of the workshop is to return to the basics of the Divine Principle and to revive our determination to create a culture of heart through Tribal Messiahship. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to lectures about the Divine Principle and True Parents’ providential course, given by renowned Japanese lecturers Shoichiro Nakamura and Masayuki Kachi, who are coming from Japan especially to teach. Both Rev. Nakamura and Rev. Kachi have taught at educational centers in Japan for over 40 years, and Rev. Kachi has long researched True Parents’ words as a member of Japan’s history department. This is likely to be one of their last teaching events at IPEC for some time.

Please note: you can find details about a few special scholarship opportunities for pastor couples, certain elders, youth, and others when you register. Families are also highly encouraged to attend, though the age limit we recommend for children is 15 and up.

TESTIMONIES

“I think the headquarters staff successfully conveyed to us their zeal for witnessing. Their presentation was appropriately given at the closing of this workshop. During Dr. Balcomb’s prayer, I sensed the presence of True Mother. I am convinced that the seriousness of the Family Federation leaders and staff makes such a phenomenon possible. During the unified prayer my heart was burning and my legs were shaking. I think this prayer solidified my resolve to serve True Mother with the heart of filial piety. Thank you so much.” –Theodore Tadaaki Shimmyo, NY

“The Unification movement is filled with hope, absolutely. Participating in this workshop really moved my heart. I want to leave all my anxieties behind, because I worry too much about many things and I fear too many things. I need to push myself forward from now. I won’t be the person that I was in the past… I don’t know exactly what I can do right now, but I am determined to inherit True Mother’s heart.” –Michael Hirakami, Second-Generation Unificationist, MN

“I also gained confidence. Because of this workshop, I have a new start now…I would like to bring results True Mother now, because I love her from the bottom of m heart. Thank you so much for everything.” –Ayako Heller, NY

CARP HyoJeong Trip 2018

Welcome to the 3rd Annual HyoJeong Trip!

Registration Deadline – May 25th
Start your Registration Process Today

This trip is not just for CARP members.
All young adults who want to inherit the culture of heart are invited

Two years ago, 36 CARP members traveled to Japan to inherit the roots of our movement. Last year (see picture below), True Mother told the 120 students that went that "when America multiplies three times, ten times and becomes 3,000 and 30,000, then America will stand. When America stands, the world will stand." We made a promise to her then that we would multiply our result and bring 360 young people next time (that's this summer!). Since then, they have been working hard locally to prepare, find, and become righteous people who will stand for True Parents. We currently have 200 participants from the US and 40 internationals signed up.

This is your opportunity to join us for international travel and experience the power of the Principle firsthand! Please read through everything, and fill out the form at the bottom before purchasing a ticket. 

The intention for this year’s trip is to unite with Mother Moon’s vision to bring more people into the culture of heart, the HyoJeong culture, and to unite the nations of Korea, Japan, and America. Our goal is to use our influence as America to influence the young people of our nation and inspire the young people in other nations to stand up for a culture of heart, to make a foundation for the peaceful reunification of North and South Korea, to inherit the HyoJeong culture, and to expand CARP after our return.   

This trip will help deepen one's personal life of faith, but the greater goal is to inherit the Heart of Hyojeong and become global citizens by sharing Principle with others. We see this trip as pivotal in educating and raising students to stand for God and True Parents on their campuses when they return. The target audience for this trip is college students but young adults and high school students are welcome to join. This trip is not just for CARP members but for all young adults who want to inherit the culture of heart. To prepare, we are asking all participants to read through the Divine Principle (red, blue, and yellow) before going on the trip.

Our goals for the trip are: 

1) To expand the culture of heart (of hyojeong, filial piety) by standing for True Parents and sharing about them with the world (witnessing)

2) For America, as the elder son nation, to lead in connecting and uniting the CARP students of Korea, Japan, and America to influence the young people of the world
3) To establish a foundation for peace and unity on Korean peninsula, True Parents' homeland
4) To establish and expand CARP in each region after the trip 

Check out our videos from the last two years!  

This year, we will be travelling to Japan and Korea from June 25th to July 11th!

  • Networking with international CARP chapters

Unity in the Korean Peninsula: Step Forward to Lasting Peace

113.png

On June 16, Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) New Jersey will hold its fifth annual Korean Peninsula Unity Event at the Korean Community Center in Tenafly, New Jersey. Hundreds are expected at this year’s gathering, which will feature Korean affairs expert Dr. Yong Soo Seol. Peace advocates and other citizens who dream of reunification are encouraged to attend.

This year’s theme is Korean Peninsula Unity: Step Forward to Lasting Peace. It is the hope of WFWP and its affiliate, the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), that civil society will engage in dialogue and take action to encourage peace on the Korean Peninsula. Therefore, guests will have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Seol and ask questions about his lifelong efforts toward reunification. In addition to the keynote address, attendees will gain a historical view of the challenges facing both Koreas, which further complicate efforts toward reunification.

WFWP hopes that this event will segway to future opportunities, such as pilgrimages for South Koreans to visit their relatives in the north. As always, WFWP is emphatic that “not one drop of blood be shed in the process of peace and Unification.”
