Matthew Hill, a young Unificationist who has performed for True Parents on several occasions, was the fortunate recipient of the Wonmo Pyeongae Foundation Scholarship Award in Maryland. Rev. Ernest Patton, Rev. Miilhan Stephens and Matthew got together at an Italian restaurant (one of Dr. Kim’s favorites when he is in the area) called Pasta Plus for dinner on Monday, March 23, 2015. To begin the night they offered a prayer and then discussed many different topics over dinner, such as Miilhan’s new calling, the Maryland Church community, health and wellness and how it is related to spiritual health. Matthew gave a testimony about how grateful he was, and later they continued talking about some of their fondest memories with the community. Rev. Patton and Rev. Stephens presented Matthew with the beautiful scholarship certificate and closed the evening commenting on how grateful they are to True Mother and True Parents.
