A Letter from the President: Our Spirits are High!
Claiming and celebrating our victory was a core theme of our national and subregional Famicon events this year, and we have hundreds of amazing testimonies from participants.
We are so proud of our American families. With all the efforts that we’ve accumulated on the 2020 Offering Table, True Mother claimed the victory with the launch of WCLC in the USA, and the World Summit in Korea. All of us were a part of that in our own unique and important way.
We are now starting a new 7-year course. I am sure that more direction from True Mother will be forthcoming, but it is clear that she wants us to continue all the great works we have been doing with an emphasis on establishing Cheon Il Guk in every state of America. Brothers and sisters, it’s to be expected that we will face new types of challenges, but I am 100% convinced we will also experience never-before-seen miracles!
Now, as we watch the news unfold about spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), I recognize the worry that it causes. It is an absolute miracle and blessing that after seven years of preparation, True Mother was able to conduct the 2020 World Summit without one single reported case of infection from any of the 6,000+ VIP’s that attended from all over the world!
At the same time, True Mother has asked us all to exercise caution. The situation in the USA doesn’t seem as urgent as in Asia and Europe, but as you can see, a National State of Emergency has already been declared, and several states have had to take drastic measures to combat the spread of the virus. It is better for us to be proactive.
For example, we have postponed large national-level events, and we are asking local leaders to carefully limit their large gatherings. Roland Platt and the GPA leadership team are conducting a response plan for some of the GPA participants in more Coronavirus prone areas, and we are setting up a whole new system for most if not all of our HQ staff to be able to work from home temporarily if the need arises.
Thanks to the loving leadership of our True Mother, we are working as proactively as possible to ensure everyone’s safety, and keep our spirits high as we embark on the next seven years of total victory!
God bless you and thank you,
Rev. Demian Dunkley
