The Words of the Fuchs Family
Dear Blessed Families,
Dear Second Generation Blessing candidates,
With this letter I would like to inform you of further details concerning the matching and Blessing by True Parents around the time of True Parents Birthday celebrations in Korea. True Parents will conduct a matching for 2nd Generation candidates, and already matched couples of the Second Generation may also attend the Blessing on 17th February.
All Second Generation candidates or couples who wish to attend should register with the European Second Generation Blessing Department by January 31st 2010. Please contact Geros Kunkel. Also if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. For first gen couples, please contact Rainer Fuchs.
The Blessing will take place in the Kintex Hall in Korea on the 17th of February 2010. All matched couples should arrive in Korea by the 15th of February 2010 and may depart on the 18th of February 2010. We will organize a program in Korea for western couples on the 18th of February, so if possible please plan to stay for that and to depart on the 19th of February 2010.
Matching candidates must arrive earlier. Please come to Korea by the 13th of February 2010. The matching by True Parents will be done some time between the 14th and the 16th of February. Those wishing to be matched must attend in person (no photo matching) and participate in the program in Korea from the 14th to the 16th of February 2010.
Second Generation couples may attend if they were matched by their parents. Or they may attend as matching candidates and be matched by True Parents.
