7-Day DP Seminar
Dec 28, 2015
On Jan 3, 2016, 32 brothers and sisters graduated from the 2nd 7-Day DP Seminar, held at the International Peace Education Center in Las Vegas. There were 4 teams, 1 made up of elders (the VIP Team – “Very Inspired People”) and the other 3 were younger single participants. 6 of the participants were guests, attending the 7-Day DP seminar for the first time.
The participants felt especially blessed to have Dr Kim come on the 2nd day and share about True Parents vision for Las Vegas, why it is an important city, and the reason the Peace Education Center was built.
Many participants felt their spiritual lives were refreshed through hearing the Divine Principle and others were inspired by the amazing content within the Principle – God’s Ideal, God’s heart, the significance of the human fall, God’s enduring effort through history to save us, and the life story of True Parents. In conclusion – explanation was given concerning the Blessing Ceremony, creating true families, and becoming Tribal Messiahs – the key to substantially changing this world and establishing God’s ideal.
Besides the Divine Principle presentations, the participants enjoyed themselves on several outings – to Hoover Dam, a boat ride and prayer on Lake Mead, a visit to the Las Vegas strip, a trip to the Grand Canyon, and a chance to view the night sky (many for the first time actually seeing the Milky Way).
And finally it should be mentioned that there was opportunity to witness the amazing beauty of God’s creation,
make new friends, and have fun together.
I would like to give special recognition to our staff helpers, Chris Ochoa who was the Emcee and a team leader, Emiko Cunningham – team leader, Letisha Ferabolli – team leader, Robin Schwyter – all around supporter and mother figure, Sang Moo Borneman – food coordinator, and Ken Borneman – driver, and last but not least, Lydia my wife, who was a big help.
In addition thanks to Rev Ken Doo who included us in the local church’s year end celebration (an incredible yute game) and midnight prayer, which was beautifully done with campfire and candle-light.
Finally – thank you to Steven Jares and Lorna Todd, the staff at IPEC who were very supportive and helpful.
Thank you everyone!
