Participants of the 1st 7-day training course, January 2nd -- 8th, 1972

United with our True Parents and with all our brothers and sisters all over the world the Austrian Family celebrated God's Day with grateful prayers, renewed pledges and happy activities.

In anticipation of our True Parents' visit all members have been increasing their efforts of finding God's lost children. So we have more than made up for the loss of 14 weaker members incurred at a recent period of judgement.

From the 2nd to the 8th of January 22 members of the Austrian Family took part in a training course under the direction of Peter and Gertrud. The course took place at the Family's new training center, a former farm house deep in the woods 100 km northwest of Vienna. Alone with our Heavenly Father and His beautiful, snow-covered creation the week was used for group study of the 1st chapter of Mr. Eu's book, for discussion on family life, missionary methods, details of future training courses for members and non-members and for lectures about the political situation of the world today.

Austrian Training Center

Throughout the course there was an active, stimulating give and take. A fresh spirit, a renewed eagerness to advance more rapidly, a greater confidence in the possibilities of the Family and of ourselves and a wider horizon both spiritual and political -- these results assured us of the value of a training center and of intense training courses. We are certain that this activity means the beginning of a higher stage in the mission in Austria, and we thank our Heavenly Father for making all this possible. We are enclosing a picture of the first 7-day training course for-- Father.

Please give our love to Father and Mother and to all our- brothers and sisters.

In the name of our True Parents,
Peter and Gertrud Koch
