The Words of the Sawamukai Family
A Great Pioneer Of America, Mr. Ryoji Sawamukai Has Passed Into The Spirit World
January 31, 2008
A truly great pioneer of America from Japan has transitioned to the spirit world. He was in the first group of Japanese leaders that came to America with Mr. Kamiyama. He is beloved to all Koreans, Japanese and Americans. Elder Americans have deeply profound respect and fond memories of Mr. Sawamukai as an Elder that truly loved Americans and trained so many Americans as a great leader of MFT and later in the business area.
We pray for him and his family. Below is the basic information and the Seung Hwa schedule.
In the Love of True Parents
