On September 18, a Profession Ceremony took place at the Takamatsu Kokusai Hotel in Kagawa Prefecture, and for the first time in Japan, Masaaki-sama, Kyoshu-sama’s successor, bestowed Ohikari to new members as Kyoshu-sama’s representative. Overseas, Masaaki-sama has bestowed Ohikari to new members in Germany in September of 2018 and in Australia in December of the same year.

Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ entrusted Meishu-sama with the final and decisive salvation. Kyoshu-sama inherits the heart of this Meishu-sama. Masaaki-sama, with all his heart, soul and strength, inherits the heart of Kyoshu-sama and bestows Ohikari to each and every new member.

Masaaki-sama stands with dignity and command on this one line of salvation that comes from God without the slightest distortion! I must confess here that I have conviction of that truth, and a feeling of awe and reverence welled up within me. Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama—we who are under their leadership have nothing to fear. How grateful I am to have conviction of this.

I, together with those who joined our faith on this day, pledge anew with solid determination to press ahead on this true path of salvation.
