The Words of In Jin Moon from 2012
In Jin Moon -- September 11, 2011
There are tickets still available for In Jin Nim's Youth Concert being held at Nihon Seinenkan (Setagaya) tomorrow evening from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Price is 2,000 per seat.
If you are interested in attending this exciting event, please contact Rev. Takemura, directly to arrange tickets.
Wow--why is this information about the concert in Setagaya just getting to us now?
This is not to accuse the IFA staff in any way --I know that you guys didn't know anything about this either. Is the arrival of the True children in Japan a private event only for a chosen few? Is it not that important so the general membership doesn't need to be informed and have the choice to attend or not? This is confusing.
What is the thinking here?
Hi! It's a great chance, isn't it!
Actually, if I have it right...the story goes...
When In Jin Nim's 2 children, Shin Go Nim (Rexton) and Shin Son Nim (Ariana) were around 8 or 9 years old, They participated in a competition organized by a Japanese lady named Mrs. Davis (spelling I don't know.) She is (was) the 4th wife of the King of Indonesia. Mrs. Davis had an organization in Japan which educates and raises aspiring artists and they gave awards to those they felt deserving. Rexton participated in the competition and was noted as worthy and received an award from her at age 8. So, they came to Japan to receive the award. While they were here, In Jin Nim met with 2nd gen and others and her children played a small piano concert for those who would like to attend.
Then, she encouraged the 2nd gen up and coming artists. She came back the next year and now it is an annual event. Now, Not only do her children preform, but 2nd gen from all over Japan practice very hard and she encourages them as they perform in front of her and others.
So, in the Moon World magazine (2nd gen church monthly magazine in Japanese), we can find the article about where and when she is coming, and encouraging 2nd gen. This year She will not only be at Tokyo but also at Fukuoka or somewhere close.
So, Local Churches all have tickets to this and have known about it for years...
I'm sorry until this year, we haven't made it available to IFA list (often it has been sold out).
If anyone can go, it is really a wonderful chance to see excellence in action!!
So, that's why she is in Japan...for these concerts. She had some time on Saturday morning so we could arrange a time with her as international families.
I'll see many of you soon
