We'll Preach the New Covenant With All Our Heart and All Our Mind

On April 2, 19 brothers and sisters from the United States were greeted at Incheon Airport by members in Korea. Even though they have a different skin color, language and culture, they are all brothers and sisters in spirit. They warmly embraced each other. The foreign brothers and sisters from three regions of the StatesLos Angeles, San Diego and Colorado, visited Korea to celebrate the feasts of God, including the Passover, together with Mother.

Mother blessed the children from the far-off country, saying, "Experience God's abundant blessing, especially the Holy Spirit, until you go back home." And they thank God for giving them the opportunity to experience Father and Mother's love directly, shedding tears of gratitude.

As Jesus washed His disciples' feet just before celebrating the Passover to promise them eternal life about 2,000 years ago, so Mother washed the feet of the daughters from afar. They all shed tears with a repenting heart, as an expression of their gratitude to God for humbly serving them to cleanse their sins.

Participating in the flesh and blood of Christ, the members realized once again that they could have life only through the Passover containing God's extreme love. They pledged themselves to preach the words of life to those who didn't experience God's love through the Passover, and gave more careful consideration to the words of God. The foreign brothers and sisters, having a difficult time getting over jet lag, showed their enthusiasm for the gospel, saying, "We do not want to miss God-given opportunities to receive His blessing."

To those passionate brothers and sisters Mother personally gave teachings through the words of God and let them feel the divine love every day; She encouraged them, and praised them for even the smallest efforts, worrying about whether they were sick or well. They tasted the true freedom in God's love which they'd never experienced.

The foreign members were growing to resemble God, who is light and love, by putting brothers and sisters before themselves and supporting one another in weakness. Pastor Tae Am Park, who is in charge of overseas members, said, "All of them have been born again through God's love." He expected them to show the love, which they'd received from God, to many people and dispense it to them.

They'd celebrated the Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Day of Resurrection. And they spent their last night in Korea seeing the movie "The Passion of the Christ"; they witnessed the suffering of God who sacrificed Himselfgave Himself even to deathfor us. Seeing the terrible suffering of Father and Mother, who warmly embraces and comforts the children with an unceasing smile, they keenly realized how high and deep God's love is.

"Our sufferings are nothing compared to God's. Since we've realized how much God loves us, we will put into practice the love of God." 'With this resolution, they loudly responded, "Amen," when Mother told them to "remember the suffering of Father who sacrificed Himself for our salvation and bear much fruit by preaching the kingdom of heaven where there is no pain or death to many poor people on earth."

As Mother said, "Always keep smiling," the foreign brothers and sisters got on the plane with a smile on their faces, expecting to see again rather than being too sad at parting. Waiting for the overseas brothers and sisters, revived with the water of life, to visit Korea again with the fruits of love, we will work harder to spread the gospel.
