Thank you for your hard work on the front line of providence. It has come to this office’s attention that a number of rumors have been recentlycirculated in the mission field and in Korea causing confusion within the organization ofthis movement. For this reason, because we received a number of communications forregion and mission countries, we are sending this clarification from our headquarters. These rumors allege that Sun-jo Hwang was appointed as the chairman of themovement in Korea; that True Father ordered the immediate dismissal of three executives atthe Foundation to Support HSAUWC and providential organizations; that Kook-jin nimresigned from his position and returned to the United States. On April 11, 2011 (3rd month, 9th day of the heavenly calendar) at the VIP WaitingRoom at Incheon International Airport prior his departure from Korea to the United States,True Father clarified this issue in front of Rev. Sun-jo Hwang and other key leaders of ourmovement, and representative ambassadors for peace in Korea. During the 52nd True Parents’ Day celebration on April 3, 2011 (3rd month, 1st day ofthe heavenly calendar) and hoondokhae the following day, True Father had emphasized thatthere is an organizational hierarchy in the Unification Church, where True Mother standsabove Hyung-jin nim and Kook-jin nim and True Father stands above True Mother. He alsospoke about this same topic over the next few days on a number of occasions. True Fatherexplained that the organizational hierarchy in our movement is in the order of True Father,True Mother, Hyung-jin nim and Kook-jin nim, and then those next in line. In relation to this, on the day that True Parents were leaving Korea, Rev. Yong-hyunMoon suggested to True Father twice to have Rev. Sun-jo Hwang appointed as the chairman

True Father,however, made it clear in the Airport Waiting Room that he could not accept that. True Father gave instructions to review the issue concerning the personnel changesof the above-mentioned three and that he would make a final decision regarding this after hecame back from the United States. Rumors surrounding this issue, however, have spreadalleging that True Father had immediately dismissed the three in question. In the AirportVIP Room, True Father (while mentioning that Mr. Bang, who is one of the threeexecutives, has a sharp mind and works very hard) emphasized that all leaders of theUnification movement should love their enemies, forgive them, unite with them in harmonyand march forward toward Foundation Day, January 13, 2013. Contrary to the rumors thatKook-jin nim had returned to the United States, Kook-jin nim is still actively engaged in hismission at the Foundation, in Korea, and in Japan according to True Parents’ directions. All leaders in the Unification movement worldwide should clarify the above issuesto the leaders and members on the field, and guide them so that we can move forward inunison for the providence of creating Cheon Il Guk.Unification ChurchWorld Mission Headquarters
