The Words of the Jenkins Family
A Prayer Concerning The Car Accident Involving Our Young People
September 22, 2003
We are shocked and stunned by this tragedy. We express deep sorrow and remorse that our beautiful young people are going through such a path of tragedy and suffering. Kwan Jung Lee, son of Rev. Lee our Regional director in Seattle has passed into the next life. We pray for Rev. Lee and his wife and family. Rev. Hun Suk Lee is the Regional Director of Seattle Region. Nam Hi the son of Rev. Hwang is in a coma. We pray for Rev. Thomas and Kathleen Hwang who are national Messiahs to China. We also pray for the families of Alexei Belegrov, Jonathan Bonini, Solomon Pobanz and William Bowles who were in the accident.
Father gave a beautiful calligraphy for Kwan Jung saying he was a patriot on the front line and that he is a great victor. He was immediately connected to Heung Jin Nim in the spirit world.
Our hearts are heavy when we see so much sacrifice in our second generation. We have lost many. We sincerely seek you Heavenly Father during this time of trial and suffering and beseech you Lord that you might surround these families, especially the Lee's and the Hwang's with your infinite love and healing warmth. We pray also for True Parents comfort in this time of sadness. Please dear God, allow us to understand your heart and True Parents heart through all of this. Please dear God, allow the suffering of these fine young people and their families to somehow be marked in history so that their beautiful lives will turn humanity toward you. Please dear God, guide us.
Thank you God.
In my name.
Let us remain in prayer and be much more focused and vigilant concerning our responsibilities before heaven and earth. Let us walk this current 40 day course with more heart and sincerity.
