Guidance from the Regional President Rev. Bakary Camara
Rev. Camara spoke about Purification of our bodies and our minds. He said that we need to purify ourselves first before we witness to others. He instructed us not to smoke and not to drink. He encouraged us to really try our best to connect to the heart of True Parents and Heavenly Parent through prayer and fasting constantly until we tap into the heart of God. He said that we have to really fulfill our responsibility.
Rev Camara said that we should go out witnessing with a heart of saving the people, not with a heart of making members. He deeply expressed to us that True Parents have carried a heavy burden because of us. He said we are supposed to be blessed when we had 3 spiritual children, who are willing to sacrifice their lives for us. He said that many members received blessing without fulfilling this condition and therefore Satan accused True Parents and they had to pay a huge indemnity. He said all issues arising from the True family are because of us who are failing to fulfill our responsibilities. He also encouraged us not to stay far way from our spouses unless we have a special mission from True Parents. He said that our entering the kingdom of Heaven depended on our tribal Messiahship success. Rev. Camara also conveyed Orientation he received from Mother about Tribal Messiahship to us.
DAY 3 (Sunday Service): Rev. Camara spoke about unity with members and helping each other’s. He said we need to identify our subject partners. Otherwise there is not direct path to God. He also said that we need to pray for our leaders and really invest ourselves in Tribal Messiahship Activities.
He also spoke about his experience with the Kamugisha Family staying on the land that True Mother bought for Uganda. He said that he was inspired by this humble family, which was raising goats and rabbits as a means to pay tuition for their children. And on that background he began a fundraising campaign to construct a church and a center in Lusaaze. Rev. Camara led fundraising by pledging a donation of $3000. This inspired the members to also pledge and offer. In total $13,050 was raised for the construction of the church. During the fund raising Rev. Camara sang a song about True Parents. They are behind me, they are in front of me. They are behind me they are around me so I can not fear”. He thought us to sing this song and every one were inspired to do so.
Rev. Camara was happy with the Uganda family and promised to come back very soon.
