안녕하세요 Annyeonghaseyo! (Good evening!)
Kyoshu-sama’s missionary visit to Korea has already reached the last day. Kyoshu-sama and his family visited Imjingak, approximately 7 km south of the Military Demarcation Line.
Imjingak is a facility that was built in 1972 after the announcement of the South and North Korea Joint Statement, with the wish to have a peaceful unification and also made to see displays narrating the scars of the Korean War. In the vicinity is the Demilitarized Zone.
First, Kyoshu-sama made a visit to the Sacred Prayer Altar where North Korean people who are not able to go back to their homes and scattered families hold rituals for North Korean family and ancestors. He said, “There is something that I have been made to think as I come close to the North and South Korea border. Here at this place, I would like to pray to God. With what I say next, I would like for all of you, together, to share the same thoughts as I.”
“We, all humanity, have forgotten our own true home, heaven. Humans have made things like east, west, south and north their own, and used them to boast of their worth and of good and bad. We made east, west, south and north our own human things and neglected what exists in the central part of east, west, south and north. God, please forgive us. The center of east, west, south and north is also in the central part of me. In the name of Messiah, which is one with Meishu-sama, I return to heaven and together with east, west, south and north, I surrender myself as one who has been forgiven and saved. May you govern the east, west, south and north that exists within us. Please use me as you wish. I will serve you.”
Next, under Kyoshu-sama’s lead, all who were with them, including Rev. Narii (President of Su no Hikari Kyodan) and Rev. Shirasawa (President of Izunome Group), prayed the Zengen Sanji.
After Kyoshu-sama’s family viewed the Demilitarized Zone, they made their way to the airport. There, they were seen off by members of the Seoul Johrei Center and made their way back to Japan.
Next year, his worldwide missionary visits are being planned on the stages of North America, South America and Europe. Everyone, let us serve together in this entirely new phase of worldwide missionary work and the sacred work of the true construction of Paradise on Earth and salvation of humanity.
