Dear Blessed Wives,
As we write this letter we are filled with emotion and gratitude at the thought of the faith you as North American blessed wives exhibited in the last 24 hours. Many who had made such painstaking preparations for family, work, mission and children were unwavering in this time of trial. In city after city across America our women were at the airports about to leave when they heard the news.
We're told that in Los Angeles many wives had already completed the first phase of their journey from other American cities were waiting in the airport for the flight to Korea. It was at that moment that others who knew of the new direction came to them and told them that Father wanted them to stay. One sister could not hold back the tears as she informed one of our women - why ? Because when she told our sister that a change in direction had come the sister said, "OK if that's what Father wants I'll follow !"
For some the confusion was and continues to be almost unbearable and they cried out to heaven in anguish. When the emotion and shock subsided many were able to find the original substance upon which their faith was originally founded. A faith that God has been longing for. These are the women of destiny upon which God can reestablish his covenant with America! We are proud of you Unificationist Women. Holy Blessed Wives of Absolute Faith, Absolute Love and Absolute Obedience. Please rest assured that this direction is official. This is the will of heaven as directed by our True Parents. When we received the call of this massive change in dispensational direction we also were shocked. Having just spent time with True Parents at Kodiak, there was no indication that such a providence was upon us. Just the day before during the Pal Jeong Shik address True Father spoke of the crucial meaning of this 21 day workshop and the National Level Blessing and how this third group was most important for God's providence.
Historically it was always women who led God's dispensation. It was Tamar who faithfully obeyed heaven's direction to give birth to a new lineage from which Jesus would come. It was Zipporah who saved Moses through her faith.
It was Mary who obeyed heaven's call so that Jesus might be born in purity.
It has been True Mother who restored the Bride of Christ.
Through this direction we can see and feel how much True Parents love and trust the American Blessed Wives. We know that True Parents are very concerned about the difficulties you are facing. Yet they are confident in your ability to represent True Mother in this time of tribulation and give new birth for the nation and the world. Now, representing True Mother you are asked to manifest extraordinary and historic faith.
We are being asked to focus our energies on the Million Family March on October 16th in Washington, D.C. We will join the great blessing of marriage there. Please pray and consider the positive possibilities that exist with this. Several million people will gather. In this great and historic millennial year we believe that God prepared a world stage upon which the family could become the focal point of world peace. Father would like all religious leaders and heads of state to join in this moment of triumph for the Family of God. He would like to ask all of our VIPs from all of our educational efforts to join us to lift up the Family of God.
All members in North America are asked to support this Family movement as God's hope for America.
At this time of preparation for October 16th we ask that you remain prayerful and patient as a new direction is developed. We would like you to join our mobilization effort and work side by side with our VIP allies, friends in faith and especially our brothers and sisters of the Nation of Islam. Our immediate direction should be to work with the local chapters of the Million Family March and support their existing efforts for success.
We must seek God's guidance at this time as to how we are to fulfill His will for America. Father would like all blessed women to make the Million Family March and Blessing a great success for His will connected to the National Level Blessing.
We are grateful to you. Your attitude will become part of the historic treasure of the Unification history and will be marked as a turning point in the American Elder Son providence. You are the mothers of a new America in which all races and faiths can join as one family together with God and our True Parents.
We pray that abundant blessing will come to you and your family at this time.
