Spain: European UPF visit Madrid
By Mario Magaz, UPF Spain
Spain has been greatly blessed this past week. While we had Dr Michael and Fumiko Balcomb for the blessing ceremony in Barcelona, Dr Otsuka and Jacques Marion visited Madrid.
They arrived on Friday 8th and one of their main purpose was to meet with Miguel Cano, who is Ph D. In Philosophy and Education Sciences.
He wrote a few books about “Philosophical Foundations for Peace”, which is a good material we can use to educate our Ambassadors for Peace in Europe. They could spend time with him.
They also meet with Armando Lozano (UPF) and Marcia de Abreu (WFWP). On Saturday afternoon they could visit Prado Museum.
On Sunday morning they spoke in our Sunday service. Jacques Marion spoke about ten minutes about the development of IAPP and the inter- religious organization that Mother is asking to educate the parliamentarians concerning moral values in Europe.
Then Dr. Otsuka gave the main sermon. For most members it was the first time to meet him. He was very close and made a lot of jokes. He gave us his personal testimony about how he joined our movement and how he was matched and blessed to his wife. He spoke about how God prepares everything beforehand. Of course, we have to fulfill our part of responsibility, but God has already prepared 95% beforehand. After he ended his sermon, wetoke a picture with him.
