Under the presence of Kyoshu-sama, a Profession Ceremony was held on June 18 at the Nagoya Church. Each new member received their Ohikari directly from Kyoshu-sama with immense humility, and began walking on the path of salvation of World Church of Messiah that is unparalleled in the history of humanity.

This Profession Ceremony was held only three days after the Birth of the Messiah Service: Celebrating the One-Year Anniversary of the Grand Ceremony. Amidst the excitement that had not yet cooled down, I, the reporter, could not help but think of the posture of the pilgrimage group members from Africa, who were seeking Kyoshu-sama from the bottom of their hearts. I attended the Profession Ceremony on this day, with the strong desire to have an unshakable, rock-solid faith like the pilgrimage group members—transcending borders as we share this strong faith—and to make this ceremony a new step forward for me as well. “I want to become a true holy member of World Church of Messiah that is recognized by God”—I offered this heartfelt prayer as I witnessed the posture of the new members in front of me.

Together with those who joined our faith on this day and with the members all over the world who are under the leadership of Kyoshu-sama and Masaaki-sama, I would like to walk forward with an unwavering determination and pride in my heart that we are the only ones who can respond to the true will of Jesus and Meishu-sama.
