He also explained the 16 points Father Moon emphasizes in His Thought and Philosophy.

The Testimony he gave on True Father left people perplexed and shocked. Perplexed because they discovered that what they were hearing was in contradiction with the received and prejudiced ideas they came with. Shocked because they discovered that Reverend Moon’s Thoughts, Philosophy, and Way of Life were not ordinary ones: he teaches what he practices and practices what he teaches. He could forgive, serve and love even his enemies.

This presentation took him the whole morning of May 4th. In the afternoon He presented UPF activities nation by nation in 2005. All this was with the use of PowerPoint. As the VIPs watched the images they were very impressed with the achievement of Father Moon.

Reverend Tokuno also presented Reverend Moon’s Rallies in Korea in the month of April. At the same time, he asked the Ambassadors for Peace to prepare and welcome True Mother and True Children during their visit to Cameroon in July 2006. They were stunned by the immensity and the vast scope and fields of activities in which True Parents are involved. They had to put their wine into the new wineskin. They changed from being slaves to media prejudices to servants of Peace.

In the evening of May 4th, Reverend TOKUNO, had time to inspire members who had gathered at the FFWPU centre in Yaound? He informed all the members that Cameroon been nominated as one of the countries to receive True Mother and True Children during their 120-nation Tour. This is because there is no leadership struggle among members and the country is politically stable.

To prepare for True Mother’s visit he asked 3 things to all the members in Cameroon; to start a serious sincere indemnity condition, to create absolute unity centered on the national leader couple and catch up to establish a stable foundation of VIPs centered on the Head of State.

The Seminar continued on May 5th with other presentations. More VIPs came on this second day. Reverend ASONG Stephen presented the Universal Principles as Foundation for Peace. This presentation inspired the participants. They were showered with the Universal Principles. As some said, this teaching is not some kind of scientific or mystical mechanism of brainwashing people, but it reconciles all religions.
