Blessing Festival Held in Ukrainian Capital
Kiev, Ukraine, July 8, 2019

Members in Ukraine used the occasion of Family Day to hold a Family festival with a Blessing ceremony in Kyiv. Svetlana Gribkova conducted the ceremony for 18 couples, organizing a beautiful celebration for them with a banquet and dancing. As most of them were elderly, some families came as three generations of couples. Some couples who have stayed together more than 40 years spoke of their experience of sharing all difficulties and joy together. Introducing True Parents’ values to the festival participants, we emphasized the importance of promoting strong, traditional families and expressed gratitude for the example they are providing to the younger generation.

Beirut, Lebanon, July 13, 2019

By Jong-in Park
We are happy to share our news from Lebanon. We had a great celebration, on July 13, of the One Year anniversary of our HJ center. We had very good guests who came to show us their support. Many of them either received character education lectures or DP lectures. Among them were two nice families who signed FFWPU membership. We played Yoot and sang Karaoke. There were Lebanese and Syrian guests, and people from different denominations. We all felt the joy to be truly as one family under God.
