The Words of the van der Stok Family
Margot and Frank van der Stok in Middelburg, Netherland
Dear Mrs. [Won Pok] Choi,
Now all our physical children have accepted our leader and Mother as their True Parents, we would like to express how grateful we are. Erik, Jan and Gieta and Frank are already a long time in the Head-center in Amsterdam with Pauline and Teddy. Wouter and Susan and the three kids and Johan de la Querra are working very hard for the Father in Capetown as you know.
On account of overdoing, I had to stop working in Amsterdam and in view thereof we had to see for a smaller and cheaper house, which we found here in Middelburg and of which we hope to make soon a center. We send you two photos of this house. The one is marked on the back. We send you also a map of the province of "Zeeland" and her capital Middelburg, so you have an idea where she is situated.
The town of Middelburg was built in the twelfth century and was heavily bombed in the beginning of World War II and at the end of the war, the isle was inundated. The heart of the city is now rebuilt in the old style but the suburbs are newly built after the war.
We walked around the bulwarks of the city every morning from 6.30 to 8.00 AM seven days and after that we rounded the three suburbs in three weeks, also every day of the week one special suburb in order to awaken the physical and spiritual sleeping town. On account thereof we had already several serious contacts with some people. We wish to win the whole town for the Father and will work thus.
Every Monday we fast and Margot (Moses) reads the Principle every day from 5 to 6 AM and I, when Margot is cooking, from 5 to 6 PM.
We have many obliterated stamps from all sorts of countries. Can one of your departments make money with them? If so I shall send all of them. Enclosed we send you an article out of a Dutch newspaper. This is destined for Mr. Young Tyang Chang. We shall try to find and translate more articles in the time to come.
We hope Father and Mother will see their way to come to Vienna this year in June to see and bless the European Family.
We are very glad receiving regularly The Way of the World, in which we have direct contact with our homeland and we were surprised and very glad to read about the many big meetings where so many professors and pastors came to listen to the Divine Principle. It stimulates us here in Holland to go on and to accost also the ministers.
We pray daily for the work of the Unified Family over the whole world especially for Korea, our homeland, and we send our horn eland and we send our deepest love to Father and Mother and to you and all our brothers and sisters in Korea.
In the Name of Our True Parents,
Margot and Frank van der Stok
