TToonnggiill GGrroouupp NNeewwsslleetttteerr** ❇ Hoondokhae at the Cheon Jeong Gung - 9.26 by the Heavenly Calendar (Saturday, October 22, 2011) The hoondokhae session for the day, presided over by True Parents, was held at the Cheon Jeong Gung, and was attended by more than 130 blessed members and ambassadors for peace from the northern Seoul region, as well as the North Chungcheong, Busan and Ulsan regions. True Father had woken up at 3:00 AM and began his day by offering devotions. Members bowed to True Father, and then Father immediately began speaking. He said, “As of today, all ceremonies held to establish the number 26 have been fulfilled. It is the day of completion and perfection [centered on the providential numbers]. From 53 to 59… How can the number 26 be transplanted? We experienced all kinds of difficulties in the process of doing so.” He emphasized again that this day was an important one because it was the day on which everything [centered on the providential numbers] was brought to a conclusion. He also told the hoondokhae readers, “Read the speech that deals with today’s subject. You all should know what an important day today is and bear that in mind. Listen attentively,” thus indicating that the audience should listen closely to the hoondokhae readings. Won Ju Jeong, True Mother’s personal assistant, began by reading the title, “Prayer and Life,” from page 295, volume 31 of the collected volumes of True Father’s speeches. True Father intervened at times to address the audience. The reading was followed by Rev. Jung Soon Cho’s report on activities based in Las Vegas and the providence centered on Happy Health [an electronic therapy equipment company].
