Portugal: Celebrating Foundation Day Events
By FFWPU Portugal: The day February 14, 2016, corresponding to 1.7 in the 4th year of the Cheon il guk, was a very special day for the Portuguese Unificationist community, as it was the day in which we celebrated all together three very special occasions: the 49th Heavenly Parent’s Day, the 15th Anniversary of the Coronation Ceremony of God`s Kingship and True Parents’ Birthday during our Sunday service.
We began with the reading of 49th Heavenly Parent’s Day Card sent by our continental leader, Jack Corley and then with reading a significant content submitted by our national leader (from Korea) on “The Meaning and Value of the advent, of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind”, as well as we visualize some photos of the celebrations the day before in Korea.
It was with great joy and emotion that we saw some of the most significant parts of the video from the celebrations that took place in Korea, with True Parents, in particular and above all, graced in the opening with the joint song from True Parents, the video presentation of their achievements, the entry of True Parents, the powerful testimony about True Parents life, given by our international president Sun Ji Nim and the beautiful songs of the Joint Choir.
The environment was also high while we sang three times the Happy birthday congratulations for each special occasion, shouted in unison three Eog Mansei and made the distribution and sharing of Food from the offering table by all the present.
We were also awarded in honor of Heavenly Father and True Parents with songs from one of our lady ambassador of peace who composed a song especially for True Mother, from our youth choir of HARP and also from our sister responsible for WFWP in Portugal. We then ended with a final prayer and Tongil song, before our lunch time shared among all.
