12 City Tour in District One - November 19, 2007
October 20, 2007
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The momentum is building around the country for True Parents final tour of America this Jubilee Year!
I hope you have been able to read the memos that have come out about this 12 city tour as it is taking shape. The feeling is that the main program will have Hyun Jin Nim introducing his parents, True Father will begin to read and set the stage, then he will have True Mother finish the speech.
It will be beautiful family affair. I may even expect Shin Goon Nim to come out at some point. 3 Gens on one stage, Wow!
Our venue will most likely be the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. It is the best available location we have found. One of the themes will be a Pacific Rim Peace Award, honoring Pacific Rim national representatives. We have many in our area. India, China, Russia, Korea, Japan Philippines, etc. This may be part of a Summit for Peace (still being planned).
In order to get the foundation going we need your participation with ideas, people power and financially. We hope to have great entertainment. So, let me know of any professional groups you can suggest. Light, Bright and Exciting is best.
The suggested donation, as mentioned in the national memo copied below, is $500 for each BCF, $250 per Individual and $100 for 2nd gen adults.
You may give this as a separate offering at Sunday Service or send it by mail.
Make checks to: HSA-UWC (write: TP Tour 11/19/07 on memo line)
Mail to: 1610 Columbia Rd. NW Washington, DC 20009.
Let us bring a glorious success, and offer our fruits to True Parents.
Thank you, with deep hope and gratitude,
Rev. Randy Francis along with the Events and Financial planning teams.
TO: All FFWPU leaders, leaders of related organizations and blessed central families

May the blessing of God and True Parents be with you.
