Thank you very much for Dae Mo Nim's visit to Africa for the 'Special Workshop for the New Beginning of Cheon Il Guk Blessed Families' (New Beginning Workshop). On January 27, most of the brothers and sisters from Southern Africa and Congo were able to gather in Zambia to meet Dae Mo Nim for the first time. For my husband and my self it was the third time to see her.

We all felt being embraced by true love through the presence of Dae Mo Nim. There was no trace of judgment in her divine and constant smile and I felt I was already forgiven, with no feeling of guilt or impurity but joy and being in heaven floating in front of her. The vision of Dae Mo Nim in the spotlight remains in my heart.

The time gap has disappeared and all the memory of our Chung Pyung visits came back to me, the last being in 2001. After her greeting, straight away she started talking. She said she had visited the suburbs of Lusaka and felt the need of much witnessing. "There is much to be done in Africa", she said, "I will come back again."

Then she added: "Don't lie and don't be lazy. Work hard. Don't talk too much with judgmental words. Have a good life." I felt this was a special word for Africa.

When we heard the news that Heung Jin Nim and Dae Mo Nim was coming to Zambia for the first time for the 'New Beginning Workshop', I tried to work out how much we should raise for the Zimbabwe Family. Finally enough money was raised by the British Family centered on the South London Church (together with other churches and members) and other Blessed Families from the United States.

We spent most of the raised money to prepare the 'New Beginning Workshop' to be held in Zambia. Twelve brothers and sisters were able to fully pay for their first 7 generations on the father and mother's side of Ancestor Liberation and Ancestor Blessing. Eleven brothers and sisters, including our selves, paid their own fees, which came to a great surprise. We like to thank you all for your deep heart in supporting the Zimbabwe Family, setting us on the starting line. So from now on, how fast we run is our own responsibility by choosing the right course with determination.

This is my testimony to experience Heaven in attending Dae Mo Nim in Zambia, to receive pardon and liberation and blessing of our ancestors.

We deeply thank God and True Parents in sending Heung Jin Nim and Dae Mo Nim with a great amount of blessing to Africa and for their heart in coming to Africa, where much work is needed to be done. We are also grateful to brothers and sisters in Zambia who helped us so much personally and in their superb organization for the 'New Beginning Workshop'.

With the deepest heart of gratitude and love and prayers.
