A week after the ceremony a pre-blessed woman called the church. Her husband had recently died and she wanted to get another copy of her blessing certification. As she cried over the telephone she remembered the name of the Japanese missionary who blessed her couple. It shows the strong impression we have on the people we meet.
One Japanese sister had the experience of suddenly remembering the name of her grandmother and feeling her desperate desire to be recognized. An American brother could hear his ancestors calling out names trying to find everyone to attend the ceremony. Another brother used Dae Mo Nim's name to gain control over his ancestors and have them stand in organized lines at the ceremony.
