Following the Easter Service and Grand Spring Service and Easter Sunday, a Profession Ceremony was held under the presence of Kyoshu-sama on April 16 at the Kunitachi Church in Tokyo. The new members who gathered under the leadership of Kyoshu-sama took a step forward on their new journey wearing their Ohikari. After the ceremony, a welcome party was held, to which Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama made a surprise appearance right before they departed the church. When Kyoshu-sama bestowed his Sacred Word to the newly joined members on the spot, the room erupted into applause. The faces of the new members were filled with striking expressions of surprise and joy at this sudden occurrence.
Jesus Christ. Jesus has risen within me. It is due to the existence of Jesus Christ that I have been guided to the true faith in the name of Messiah and that I am allowed to wear this Ohikari right now. I cannot help but think deeply about this truth that was made known to us by Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama. How blessed I am to be under the leadership of Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama, who are linked to God in a straight line. There is not the slightest room for doubt on this path. With those who newly joined our faith, let us simply walk together earnestly on this path!
