Congressional Award for Harlem Missionaries

February is Black History Month and it is celebrated in every state in the Union. The Harlem community takes great pride in being the center of establishing a legacy of excellence within American Black Culture. Religion, art, music, theater, dance, literature and media are among some of the "high quality" contributions made by Harlemites to the world.

Politics plays a providential role in the advancement of God's Providence. Harlem's Congressman, the Honorable Charles B. Rangel is a Korean War Veteran. He has publicly recognized his contribution as a solider to the atmosphere in Korea that allowed the Unification Church to flourish.

On Sunday, February 3rd in the Black History Month Celebration at the White Rock Baptist Church in Harlem, Rev. Charles Kenyatta invited Congressman Rangel to the front of the Church to personally present awards to some special residence of the community. Among this small prestigeuos group were two Japanese Missionaries assigned to work in America through the Harlem Family Church.

Mrs. Yuki Sano and Mrs. Sachiko Sato humbly bowed in appreciation as they recieved "The Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for Outstanding and Valuable Service to the Community"

Centering on Rev. Kenyatta's recommendation, Congressman Rangel signed this community service award for these missionaries with full knowledge that they were Unification Church members sent by Rev. Moon to serve the Harlem community by visiting Churches and working with various ministers and leaders to foster unity and harmony in the world.

As you can imagine both of these sisters were elated and full of the Holy Ghost. Praise God, Amen!

Japanese Missionary Sisters are breaking down walls and building up Heaven. I'm sure that you will join with me in thanking them for their hard work and sacrifice. These missionaries spoke very little English but, everyone heard them speak the language of LOVE.

May God Bless Your Home!
