Rev. Jeong Ok Yu's report:
"Which comes first, the Hoover Dam or Las Vegas? It is the Hoover Dam. Since the dam was constructed, Las Vegas came to exist. It is said that to overcome the situation under the Great Depression, the dam was constructed from 1931 to 1935. Father has been researching the Hoover Dam and the area. It took him two hours by boat to reach the starting point of the river, whose source of clean water comes is the grand canyon. Father also went to that point by car."
Father started to sing a song Halmi-Kot (Grandmother Flower) and all joined Father in singing. After singing, Father said,
"My grandmother from the spirit world appeared and taught me this song when I was three, four or five years old. She said, 'I have a song with which I can educate you. Do you want to learn it or not?' She appeared to me with more beautiful looks than my mother and sang the song three times clapping her hands and stepping with her feet, and then I also sang the song following her." (Lyrics below)
"The boat made by the direct negative resin mold is the outcome of my 50-year-efforts. It is worth buying the boat even one gives up all their assets for that sake. Even if an earthquake and tsunami hit Korea, one can penetrate the tsunami and survive with this boat.
Katsumi: this actually happened this time in Japan. When the earthquake hit the Sendai area, those who were on powerful boats went farther into deeper waters (at least 50 meters deep), sailing over against the tsunami, whose waves were not significant yet due to the depth of the sea, and they survived the disaster. When the tsunami came closer to the seashore, the wave became 15 to 30-meter high and became harmful.
I am dumbfounded with the fact that I made the necessary boat and spoke about it at the necessary time. I have no time."
"I still remember the words I conveyed to President Park (1917-1979). I said, 'You can take over any of my ideas like Saemaulundong or Saesaramundong but you are not confident that you can overcome the threat of Soviet Union and China, aren't you? I can stop their aggression for you." Before I became 24, I had prepared myself ideologically against communism."
Tuit-dong-san-eh hal-mi-kot ka-shi-toh-deun hal-mi-kot
Grandmother flower on the back hill, grandmother flower with thorns,
Sak-nal-tae-eh neul-got-na ho-ho-paek-bal hal-mi-kot
Were you old from when you sprouted, grandmother flower with hoary hair?
Cheon-man-ga-ji kot-jung-eh mu-seun ko-chi mot-dwe-oh
You could have chosen from tens of millions of different flowers,
Ka-shi-tot-go deung-go-beun hal-mi-ko-chi dwe-ot-na
Why choose to be a thorny and stooped grandmother flower?
Hahahaha u-seup-ta ko-bu-ra-jin hal-mi-kot
Hahahaha, you are funny, you stooped grandmother flower!
Jeol-mo-so-do hal-mi-kot neul-go-so-do hal-mi-kot
A grandmother flower when you're young, and a grandmother flower when you're old!
