True Mother Says, “America is Ready”
On March 16, 2018, True Mother joined the national leaders and representatives for their last day at Famicon, displaying her trust in the American movement and encouraging them to unite with True Parents.
True Mother was very clear in her message to Famicon participants: there are only two True Parents—True Father and True Mother. Thus, it is only by uniting with them and Heavenly Parent that the nation, and eventually, the world, can be brought back to God. She then discussed why she chose Senegal as the location for Africa Summit 2018, explaining that it shows her unity with True Father in the spirit world and Heavenly Parent. She ended her message by showing her faith in the American movement:
“I spoke to all of you that I would build and prepare a foundation that would enable all of humanity throughout the world to experience internally and externally the achievements of True Parents, agree with True Parents and understand easily their providence. Did I achieve this goal or not?
Furthermore, how would the world of peace that Heavenly Parent and humanity yearn for look like? …I am working so hard [to achieve this world]; should you or should you not expand Heaven’s foundation in your respective nations and throughout the world?
It is because I saw that potential [in America] that I suddenly came here. We shall realize the restoration of the nation and the restoration of the world without fail!”
When True Mother finished her hopeful message, the Famicon participants roared with cheers of gratitude. Apple Heaven USA then performed for True Mother, bringing a smile to her face. After enjoying Apple Heaven USA’s performance, True Mother again took the mic before all the participants played a game of yute, a Korean board game: “Unite in shimjung (heart) and harmony through yute!” she said warmly. And thus, after learning deeply about True Parents’ life course in the first three days, getting to know other members of their subregion, and enjoying the last day of Famicon with their beloved True Mother, the participants officially closed the conference with a passionate game, in which they practiced unity with one another, as one true family.
