The Words of the Fuchs Family
We would like to invite all Blessed Parents who have children of matching age or younger to our upcoming European Parents Matching Convocation. There is a great deal of useful information for parents who will be preparing to match their children in the future, as well as those who are already in the process now.
The Convocation will take place in the youth Hostel Grävenwiesbach, Germany from the 19th to 21st November 2010.
The purpose of the convocation is to support parents in their responsibility of matching their children. True Parents have given the responsibility of matching our 2nd Generation to the parents, and it is our responsibility as Blessed Families to fulfill the expectation of our True Parents and to establish a tradition preparing and matching our children. For this difficult task we need to make our full effort and work together well, supporting each other in facing the different challenges, guiding our 2nd Generation well through the matching process and setting the right foundation for their future Blessing.
The Convocation will include plenty of education and guidance on issues relating to the matching and Blessing, also about Treasures of Heaven (special needs children) and Jacob's children. There will be opportunities to meet and share with other Blessed Families. It will also be possible to display and see applications of matching candidates from around the world.
Please register early. There are 120 spaces available. As there are people who were not able to attend the last convocation, they will have priority in being accepted as participants this time.
For those planning to attend please prepare the Blessing application for your child and send it to the 2nd Generation Blessing Department, so that it can be prepared in advance. For details concerning the Blessing Application and for Forms, please go to the Blessing website www.bfdeu.org/BFD/blessing/index.php
Also we encourage all families to prepare beyond the application some further details about the candidate to present. This is to help other parents get to know a bit more about the candidate, about his / her character, life of faith, background, future aspirations, limitations, etc...
Invited are: All Parents of present or future 2nd generation matching candidates and candidates over the age of 25 (born before born before 21st November 1985).
