Victory Celebration of the World Africa Summit
This morning, True Mother spoke at the victory celebration of the World Africa Summit in Dakar, Senegal.
In her speech, True Mother reaffirmed her message of hope from the opening plenary, remarking happily that, “Africa means the motherland—Africa is the light. This means that Africa is a continent that heaven has prepared. It is a continent that is united with Mother.” True Mother was so inspired she spoke for longer then she had planned to the great joy of those in attendance.
Unificationists all around the world stayed up to celebrate the success of the summit with True Mother in heart. At the 5th Japanese-English workshop at the International Peace Education Center (IPEC), which continues until the January 26, many of the participants watched the celebration together at 1:00am, shouting cheers of victory together with True Mother.
This is the most exciting time to attend True Parents and God’s providence! The mountain has been climbed and True Mother stands at the top, encouraging us to join her and our True Father. She has invested everything to make a heavenly Africa a reality.–Rev. Jeffrey Schmidt, District 7 Pastor
True Mother saw the jewels of the African people and encouraged them to work with her while she is on earth. I can imagine that the people of Africa have hearts that are filled to the brim and they feel much more confidence to accomplish miracles with faith in True Mothers directions. –Rev. Kevin Thompson, District 11 Pastor
My tears overflowed as True Mother recounted going to Goree Island and how deeply she felt the 500 years of pain and suffering of God’s children in Africa. I am so proud of and grateful for the continent of Africa for uniting with you so completely to bring a smile to God and inspiring us all.–Rev. Mari Curry
I was so moved by True Mother’s explanation of the importance of finding those who are prepared by Heaven. This evidence is clear in your work regarding Africa. I am determined to keep this perspective in my outreach to non-Unifciationists.–Rev. David Rendel, Midwest Sub-Regional Director
