centuries. You can't afford not to hear what he has to say!"

gave Reverend Moon the vision and the truth for this time. As he said,
he's just doing what God told him to do. Who are we to question God?
We just have to follow."

I taught Bible study to my members and told them that if Reverend Moon
can pray 10-12 hours and preach 12-16 hours at a time, I can afford
to give more, give extra, and go longer in our Study. I really want
to work with Reverend Moon's people."

was the second time I shook hands with Rev. Moon. The first time was
27 years ago when I was a 16 year old with an attitude and dislike
for religion and religious people, and anyone who was not black. I
was walking into the the New Yorker hotel, and he was coming through
the lobby. He looked me straight in the eye and shook my hand, smiling.
I had such a negative view of life at the time, I'm sure I was not
so respectful. But I never forgot that look and handshake. So now
I am receiving an award for my organization's work with the homelss
and less fortunate, and get to look him in the eye and shake his hand,
but with a lot more humility and gratefulness. It was the most memorable
evening. Meet my wife, she says the evening was so beautiful.
Awardee for "Reach Out Across Miami"
have been a fireman in Miami Dade County for 24 years, I know what
it means to go into an area unwelcome even though you come there to
save their lives, even risking your own life. And Rev. Moon even stated
that in his words this evening. We are all God's children and should
be united together. I believe in bringing all the races and faiths
together under God.
Deacon for Antioch missionary Baptist Church
Sun Myung Moon is a humble man. I am moved to my spirit with such
a humble man before God who does such mighty works. I can respect
and admire that. The program was so well organized.
Nation of Islam, Assistant Regional leader under Rasul Mohammad
tonight, I was a skeptical man. I did not really want to come. I was
not so positive about this Rev. Moon. But now, after this beautiful
event, I changed my view of Rev. Sun Myung Moon. I now can understand
where he is coming from. Thank you so much for inviting me here tonight.
Guest of Carlos and Ritsuko Soto
was a beautiful program. I loved the singing and praise. Rev. Moon
is a man of God for our time.

spirit of this banquet was exactly like what I experienced in the
early 70's of Father Moon's initial speaking tours."
Visiting Scholar at the Harvard Divinity School
saw God in Rev. Moon with my own eyes. I felt the presence of God
in him and with him. I was so impressed with his speech. And if God
is for you, who will be against you? We all have a lot to learn from
Rev. Moon. Rev. Moon's words are prophecies and every one of them
went right into my heart. The world would be a better place if people
will listen to Rev. Moon. He was right, when he said he was 18 years
old instead of 81. I really enjoyed every aspect of the program. The
Japanese Missionaries are teaching us real life of service and dedication
in doing the work of God. They were here this morning to offer me
Revival Deliverance Edification Center, Mattapan
Moon spoke the truth. I am very blessed, my family, my whole congregation
were blessed. I am grateful and thankful to the FFWPU for inviting
me. I learnt a lot from him. He is a good teacher, preacher, a man
of God and a good example to everybody. Despite all the persecutions,
rejection and attacks on him, he is not mad. Instead he is inviting
everybody to his banquet to fellowship. As a woman preacher, I understood
and appreciated his suffering heart as I compared it with my own situation.
Even Christians cannot understand Jesus' deep heart until they receive
persecution. There are few even among Christians who know real suffering.
Because I have been persecuted as a female, black pastor, I understand
well Jesus' and Rev. & Mrs. Moon's heart. I would like to embrace
Revival Deliverance Edification Center, Mattapan
I see that Rev. Moon has kept loving and forgiving others inspite
of tremendous persecution. I understand well that he feels deep pain
in his heart. I would like to work together with your missionaries
in the near future. I wish my wife was around to participate and listen
to Rev. Moon. Those who have never heard from Rev. Moon came to the
Banquet to listen to the man himself. I think most of them were shocked
and had to repent. Although the speech was long, people were excited
because he spoke the truth. He preached what we as preachers have
failed to preach because we are afraid of losing our members. It was
a blessed occasion and I think all of us were blessed."

was marvelous, beyond my expectation with regards to the attendance.
Father Moon's message was on target. The ministers were also impressed.

speech and the banquet were pretty good and interesting. What Rev.
Moon said was something we have tried long time ago. There were many
language barriers (Spanish) and so many other difficulties. ln spite
of that I am really honored to listen to Rev. Moon."

was wonderful and I had a good time at the banquet. Rev. Moon's speech
was great! God is using him. I pray for his continuous success of
his mission. I will write a letter to Rev. Moon."

I got really touched. Rev. Moon is so serious. His speech was very
good. His speech shocked me and I couldn't sleep that night. I am
going to Ghana for a Crusade from the end of April to July 2001. I
would like to meet the members of the Family Federation for World
Peace in Ghana. I would like to introduce Rev. Moon to the President
(I have connection with the Government) if he has plans to visit Ghana.
I know so many ministers and I would be glad to be in the forefront
to introduce him throughout the country."

Moon you brought out the duties of a man, woman and child. In our

tour reminds me of the first tour of Apostle Paul, in Asia, because
Paul preached an expanded understanding of the Gospel that was both
exciting and seen with trepidation. Paul was opposed by people on
his side. His reputation was well deserved as Saul, but Father Moon
is unjustly accused."

am really impressed by the spirit here. This was the first of Rev.
Moon's speaking events that I ever attended. I received tapes 15
years ago and I never attended an event. I'm really impressed with
the spirit of unity amongst Christians."
First Presbyterian of New Milford
