True Father appeared three times and Jesus appeared twice, and the visits of both of them were very quick and they looked like they were very busy. I also had a very long conversation with the spirits for whom I did collateral liberations this time, but I did not see them; these were only mental conversations. In general, I felt deeply touched by the absolute energy we received from our lecturer brothers and by all the hands that touched my body.

Mr. B.N. (30,000 Couples 2nd generation child, teens) “During the chanyang session today, I could feel my ancestors telling me that they had committed sins and bad deeds, and that I had inherited that burden of sin from them. They said, ‘You should remove the evil spirits more strongly in order to repent and be completely free of them.’ So I started to work harder to remove the evil spirits on all parts of my body. I felt that my body has been refreshed and energized and at the same time I became free from evil spirits.”

Koya Mountain is a sacred place for Japanese Buddhists founded by Kobo, a Buddhist saint, in the early Heian period of Japan (794-1192). They offered sincere prayers for the success of the Wakayama event, entreating the good Buddhist spirits to cooperate with them so that amazing heavenly works would take place in Wakayama. The following day, on August 26, a splendid 2019 Wakayama Hyojeong Offering Ceremony for the Inheritance of Heavenly Fortune was held in Wakayama District in Region 4 of Japan, with 1,965 participants.

One participant at this event, Ms. J.O. (30,000 Couples, 50s), who came from Wakayama District, shared a testimony of hearing True Father’s voice saying to bring more light to brighten the country of Japan: “Earlier that morning, Kobo, a Buddhist saint, had sent a message saying, ‘We are very grateful. We will never be able to repay what you have done for us.’ Thinking of this, I realized that today’s event was one of the miraculous works in this era of True Mother who has the legend of a Maitreya connected to her ancestor Han-joon Cho in her background. As the drums rang out and sound of clapping for chanyang grew louder, I felt the spirit of the HJ Heaven and Earth CheonBo Training Center enveloping the venue. I also heard a loud voice and laugh that resonated throughout the hall saying, ‘That’s good. The Maitreya’s promise has been fulfilled,’ followed by joyful laughter. During the chanyang session, while I was on the second floor working hard to remove the evil spirits attached to my body, I looked down at the first floor. When I asked, ‘True Father, are you here?’ I heard his voice answering, ‘When the light is strong, the darkness becomes smaller. Bring more light to brighten the country of Japan.’”
On Oct. 6, Japanese Workshop Department Director Beom-seok Lee, and Japanese Workshop Team Leader Toshiaki Yokoi traveled to Japan for the Hyojeong Culture Blessing Festival: Rally for the Hopeful March Forward of Heavenly Japan Region 3, which was held in attendance to True Parents in Tokoname City in Aichi Prefecture.

Mizuguchi Seiichi, the leader of Fudomyo-o (不動明王), which is a religious group in the area, attended this Nagoya event and he became convinced that the savior has come to Korea. “I saw the evil spirits disappearing during the event and the absolute good spirits embracing the entire hall. Then I felt sure that God had sent the savior to Korea. I saw a brilliant huge light when I looked at Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon. I saw a massive wave of all the religions harmoniously flowing into the arms of Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon. Gathering 40,000 people is not an easy thing to do. I felt great joy deep in my heart.”
Also on October 26 and 27, a Hyojeong Culture and True Love Family Blessing Festival is planned for Taipei City, Taiwan, and latest reports from Taiwan as we go to press indicate that about 1,500 participants are expected (According to the current information by October 22).

One woman (30,000 Couples) who attended the Wakayama North Hyojeong Offering Presentation Ceremony for the Inheritance of Heavenly Fortune (August 2) shared her testimony of meeting True Parents at the venue: “When the chanyang session started, True Father and True Mother came. As they looked at the faces of all of the participants, they said, ‘2020 will come soon, but we are still waiting with our arms open wide, waiting for the children who are not able to leap forward yet. We have been anxiously waiting for them, but they have been very entangled with their struggles and hampered by their short-sightedness, so they rarely come to see us. We couldn’t wait any longer, so we came to meet you.’ Jesus was there as well. When we heard a lecture on the history of restoration about accepting True Mother, Jesus cried out, ‘Oh! Finally my resentment has been solved.’ I was surprised to think that our True Mother is also Jesus’ True Mother. About ten minutes after the start of the chanyang session, my body suddenly lightened as I felt the evil spirits that had been attached to me rapidly removed.”

Southwest Region Director Rev. John Jackson, who attended this event, shared his testimony of hearing True Mother’s voice during the chanyang session: “During the chanyang session, I had a strong emotional reaction to one particular person, a sister I had never met before. I realized this woman had gone through many difficult experiences. I could literally hear True Mother saying, ‘This child has suffered very much and I want to love her through you.’
Another participant, Women’s Federation for World Peace USA President Angelika Selle, shared her testimony of hearing the voice of a spirit during the Ancestor Liberation Ceremony: “Today, when we did the liberation, I heard a voice saying, ‘You have no idea how long we have been waiting for this.’ I heard that over and over.”
