RE: Upcoming Second Generation Blessing Workshops March 31-April 1 (Miami, Florida); April 27-29 (Portland, Oregon)

Dear Blessed Families,

We expect that True Parents may match and bless the second generation in July during the World Culture and Sports Festival. In addition, there are many who have been matched by their parents, and would like to participate in the next Blessing ceremony in July.

Second Generation youth who intend to participate in the Blessing ceremony are required to have completed a Blessing Workshop no more than 2 years prior to their Blessing.

Therefore, we are happy to announce two 2nd Generation Blessing Workshops in the Pacific North West and Miami, FL for Blessing candidates, those who have been matched by their parents and any Blessed Child 17 years of age or older who wishes to participate. We would like to invite parents as well to attend the whole workshop with their children.

The first workshop will be held in Miami, FL from March 31-April 1 and the second workshop will be held in Portland, OR from April 27-29, 2007 and we plan to hold another blessing workshop on the East Coast in June prior to the next blessing. The details are as follows:
