Accomplishments we can proudly show our descendants
Rev. Ryu’s rally for the Busan region was held in the 7th floor of the Busan headquarters with 300 central members in attendance. The rally began with a video of True Mother speaking about the ‘Victory in the New Tribal Messiah Mission for Vision 2020’.
Listening to True Mother explain that, just like the monarch butterflies which follow the laws of nature and travel thousands of kilometers up and down every unexplored corner of the Korean peninsula, “We must be a nation who moves without fear or hesitation to pursue victory in the new tribal messiah mission, for Vision 2020,” the members at the rally shed tears of repentance and determination, and offered gratitude through their applause.
Rev. Ryu continued by reading from True Mother’s recent speeches, included her message from the World Joint Worship held at Cheongshim Peace World Center on October 26, proclaiming the depth of the heart and leadership of True Parents, who have come as the fruit of human history and as the owners of true love, true life and true lineage.
Following the reading, he spoke of how we must realize the precious value of True Parents, what a great grace we have received in being able to live and breathe in this time when we can attend True Parents directly, and how precious the tribal messiah mission is, giving us the chance to bring a witnessing victory that we can be proud of in front of our descendents. In order to pursue this goal, he outlined a 100 day special mobilization for the end of the year.
After the rally, Kim Eungnyeong, minister of South Busan church testified that through Rev. Ryu’s rally, he had gained a renewed understanding of the vision of a healthy Unification Church. Lim Jongbo, minister of West Busan church proclaimed that all of us must embrace our identity without the tiniest hesitation, and follow our providential mission and God’s Will, setting up twelve families of spiritual children, by taking on the tribal messiah mission.

Calling on the members to emulate such pioneers as the Smithsonian’s Dr. Langley and the Wright brothers, who made the world’s first airplanes, Rev. Lu stressed, “We can set up the base for restoring sovereignty if we serve True Parents, who have come as the fruit of providential history, while walking the path of the new tribal messiah mission as directed by heaven, with true passion and confidence, and accomplish the first stage by witnessing to 12 families.”
After the conclusion of his message, Rev. Ryu entreated in his prayer, “Please remember and guide these Gyeongnam region blessed families and members who have offered their determination in this new age, to become the true owners and citizens of Cheon Il Guk by standing at the center of the providence and bringing victory through this 100 day mobilization.”
