Support the Hyojeong CARP Trip to Japan and Korea
June 14, 2018
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Happy Day of All True Things! We hope you had an inspiring and uplifting celebrations.
We’re writing to share about the Hyojeong CARP (Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles) tour to Japan and Korea. Last year, 120 CARP members and young Unificationists traveled to Japan and Korea on a pilgrimage to visit providential sites and to meet Korean and Japanese CARP members. When True Mother learned of it, she invited them to Cheon Jeong Gung to a special banquet. On that occasion, Naoko Hiraki, LA Kodan leader, and Teresa Rischl, CARP USA President, promised to True Mother that this year they will bring a group 3 times larger. And indeed, from June 25 to July 11, 360 youth from all over America and some from other countries, will be joining the 2018 Hyojeong Trip.
On July 1, Family Federation of Japan is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a rally of 20,000, which True Mother will attend. Our 360 youth will also be joining the celebration and will perform for True Mother and in gratitude to our movement in Japan. True Mother was so moved to hear this that despite her demanding schedule, she decided to host a special banquet in Japan the next day, July 2, and personally welcome the hyojeong trip participants. For many of the participants, some new to our movement, this will be their first time to directly meet True Parents.
True Mother has been constantly investing in our youth, and teaching all of us about hyojeong, filial true heart. Sending our young people to meet True Mother is how we can give back our loyalty and love to Heavenly Parent and True Parents. We know they will have an unforgettable experience.
These young CARP members, with the help of pastors and Kodan members, have been working hard to encourage college and high school age youth to participate in this precious trip, and have been fundraising to support their own expenses. There are participants from all around the nation: 62 from the Northeast, 16 from the Southeast, 14 from the Midwest, 58 from the Southwest, and 140 from the West, with additional 40 international participants.
We are deeply moved by the dedication of these young people, those who committed to travel, and those who support this providence with their efforts. We are grateful to Heavenly Parent and to True Parents for the grace of being welcomed by True Mother. And we’d like to invite all of our family members to join in support of this hyojeong trip with our prayers and donations. By supporting this providence we offer our own hyojeong to God and join in attending True Parents.

God bless you and your family
