A Few Words from the Next President

Closing Prayer -- Paul Werner

Sunday Afternoon

The National Leaders who were blessed and the blessed couples from Korea and Japan (European Couples) discussed intimate details of talks held in Korea and Japan. This meeting was very helpful in clearing up several misunderstandings.

Monday Afternoon

National Leaders met together and discussed various problems. The first being communication. Fourteen telegrams were sent to Seoul over the blessing and we wondered if they had arrived.

Discussions ranged over a broad field and included finance. Because so many countries had peculiar restrictions the leaders agreed that technically it is not feasible to work in the same manner as USA for example. If the Common Market expanded to include all nations then this would obviously enable us to work together on a very much closer basis.

Owing to the problems of postal communications which vary country to country we agreed that the leaders should meet every two months on weekend for general talks. This would greatly encourage closer working together. The first meeting was arranged for Vienna on January 9th.

The next annual conference was to be held in Vienna on the last weekend in June-27/28/29/30.

It was agreed to restrict the numbers attending to about six per country. Members who are strong and potential leaders.

The discussion then turned to more intimate things concerning relationships between countries and between leaders.

Much was discussed frankly and candidly.

One thing that emerged from all this was how there is a pattern of behavior at each conference. Satan works to cause mistrust between leaders and accusations are made that a leader or the President is seeking to dominate others. It is natural that Satan works this way as he does not want a strong leader to emerge in Europe or even a leader at all. Ultimately Europe must have a Father and Mother to represent Our True Father and Mother and all leaders felt this. Likewise unless the leader or President exerts his or herself then they will be accused of not leading! The Leaders all felt this and that the position of the President of the Conference was not easy, as all saw Satan working in this way.

Although judgment remained strong in this meeting much good came out of it.
