True Mother's Faith and Courage

October 14th is the day, 56 years ago, that True Father was liberated from Hung Nam Communist Prison in North Korea and 2 years and 8 months in a death camp. On this same day, October 14, 2006 we celebrated the victory of True Family and the completion of the Third World Peace Tour with three generations going to12 cities every day through 40 countries. Many beautiful testimonies are coming from our UPF Ambassadors for Peace throughout the world and the response is getting stronger and stronger. I wanted to give a short testimony as to what I saw of Mother's determination to fulfill God's will.

Only a few people, such as Father, Dr. Walsh, Won Ju McDevitt and a handful of others really know what it's like to go to 120 nations in 120 days. I can testify from having gone 50 days with True Parents throughout America that after 30 or 40 days a certain state of stress occurs in your physical body that is very hard to describe because every moment you're in the public or in travel, except for a couple of hours sleep. Other than that each nation or city has to be embraced and loved with 100% heart and conviction. Otherwise the seeds of love are not planted the way God would like them to be.

Mother gives everything during the tours, and in her moments of preparation before the speeches she's usually reading her speech over and over again, just as Father did in every city. It is an overwhelming and quite taxing journey. We can't imagine what Father and Mother have gone through to hold the course. We can't imagine the kind of reaction Mother felt when, just as she was starting to see the end of the 120-city tour, it was announced that there would be another world tour.

Although internally it is not easy to accept the sacrifices that God requires of us, I can testify after traveling with Mother during seven tours that she has no resistance to God's will as it manifests through True Father. Zero resistance. That doesn't mean that internally there aren't many tearful moments, but she hides her tears, never showing her struggle or difficulty. The only time I saw tears was in the Bahamas, when she expressed her sorrow that she was not able to bring God's children home more quickly and she felt sorry to God and True Father. This was on the 100th day of the 120-city tour. Can you imagine having this heart after 100 days of not having one moment to yourself, having embraced nations and peoples with the mother's mission to resolve enmity between Cain and Abel, in every racial and religious condition of strife, every enmity between brothers? With love she had to embrace and overcome - in Africa, Asia, South America, Oceania, North America, Europe, Eastern Europe. Sometimes there was stiff resistance, sometimes there were mountaintop experiences meeting presidents and prime ministers.

At first we thought Father would go together with Mother on the third world tour, but then it was decided Father would only do Korea, and Mother would carry the children and grandchildren worldwide, Father would watch every night by web cast. During this time Father kept the most difficult schedule that anyone has seen. Each morning after Hoon Dok Hae Father would go out fishing and set conditions in prayer. The difficult point was that he would not come back until dark each and every day. Sometimes he would go after 5 am Hoon Dok Hae and stay out until Midnight, in the heat, in the storms. Father never missed, either at Chung Pyung Lake or at Yeosu, Father made a total sacrifice.

When Mother arrived in America on September 1st she looked incredible fresh and beautiful. We could see that Mother is in total command. When Father is not with her, she absolutely manifests Father's spirit and ability because of her oneness in heart. Every day they communicate by telephone, wherever she is in the world. The September 3rd events in America were great victories. Mother led the way in New York.

At one event outside the US we were having lunch with Mother and giving reports. During lunch Mother got a fishbone caught in her throat. Many of us have had that experience but this one was quite painful and so uncomfortable that Mother requested a doctor. Unfortunately it was a holiday and clinics were closed; only emergency rooms were open. The country leader and myself went to two hospitals to see how long it would take for True Mother to go there to have the fishbone removed. There were 42 people waiting for 2 doctors in the first hospital, meaning it would be five hours minimum to see a doctor. We felt so difficult about what to do. The second hospital was a little better but not much.

When we reported this to True Mother, she decided, I'll just go forward and give my speech. So in discomfort so painful that she could not drink liquid or eat, still Mother went forward and gave God's word to that nation right on schedule, with her beautiful smile, and only a few of us knew what she was going through. This is really true love. It was an amazing testimony to Mother's determination and willingness to overcome impossible circumstances where she was on the battlefield in physical pain, yet she went forward. She didn't complain. In fact, she was comforting everybody and smiling, and even once said, don't worry, it's just a small bone.

When she gave her address with great poise and dignity, with incredible love and heart, the audience, composed of all races, were overwhelmed with her love. To our amazement and surprise at the end of her address, when she returned backstage, she said the bone was gone.

Let us take to heart that our True Parents themselves are taking on every possible condition to hasten the day of total liberation and release of all people from the bondage of suffering, to open up the beautiful gateway to God's true love, true life and true lineage. Let us take to heart Mother's courage, and ourselves determine during this 7-year course that there will be no obstacle or difficulty that we will not digest, to bring true love to all humanity so we can liberate God's heart and save the people, from our communities to the world. All of this is done with Mother's warm smile and true love.

We can rest assured that True Parents will absolutely fulfill the third world tour, no matter what, and also they will fulfill their pledge and proclamation that is given on each one of these three world tours, that by 2013 the guns will fall silent and the Peace Kingdom will be fully realized on this earth. They will fulfill. The more we fulfill, the faster the liberation of mankind will occur.

Proverbs 31:10-12, 25-30
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. ... She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
