A Letter on the Appointing of the New President
December 31, 2018
Dear Pastors, Community Leaders, and Blessed Families,
We heard True Mother’s message for the New Year. She urged us once again to fulfill our responsibility as Blessed Families to complete the national restoration. We would like to reaffirm our determination and commitment to fulfill the vision that Heavenly Parent and True Parents showed us, and build a substantial Cheon Il Guk.
Recently, the leadership team met with True Mother in Korea to celebrate Christmas together. True Mother shared a similar message, and repeated how important it is that America fulfills its role and attends True Parents as a restored nation. One year after creating the five subregions for America, True Mother also recommended a change in the USA leadership.
It is my pleasure to announce that with True Mother’s recommendation, the board of directors have approved Rev. Demian Dunkley as the new president of Family Federation for a Heavenly USA and HSA-UWC. Rev. Dunkley continues in his role as director of the Northeast Subregion as well. Rev. Dunkley is starting this role at the first of the year, and we will work together to offer True Mother a victorious America.
I also wish to express my gratitude to Rev. Richard Buessing, who is stepping down as President of Family Federation at this time. Rev. Buessing served faithfully and we appreciate his leadership, devotion, and loyalty to Heavenly Parent and True Parents. We look forward to working with Rev. and Mrs. Buessing as they continue to serve True Parents in other roles.
Let us join in support of Rev. Dunkley as he takes on this new mission as President of Family Federation for a Heavenly USA. Let us march forward together, unite with True Parents, and in one mind and one heart, win victory of Vision 2020.
God bless you and your families,
Dr. Ki Hoon Kim
Vice President, FFWPU International
Regional Chairman, North America
