From May 21 – 23, Rev. Hiroshi Inose, Director of Kodan and Cheon Il Guk IW to America, and his wife, Mrs. Hatsune Inose, made a few visits to the Unification communities in Maryland and Washington, D.C. to share in fellowship and planning surrounding outreach and Tribal Messiahship.
On Saturday, May 21, Rev. Inose and the local community welcomed their new Kodan leader for District 1, Mr. and Mrs. Tsurusaki at the Washington, D.C. Family Church. On Sunday, Rev. Inose gave a sermon at the New Hope Family Church, where he emphasized the value of working in trinities for Tribal Messiahship. He later took the time answer questions the community had. On Monday, he was able to meet community members individually, listen to their stories and concerns, and provide individualized suggestions for outreach endeavors.
Throughout the visit and in his messages, Rev. Inose highlighted the Yankee Stadium Rally of 1976, and its 40th anniversary approaching on June 1st. This gave listeners a focus point and a clear determination to invite people to the God Bless America Family Festival in Belvedere on June 5, which will be an opportunity to share with guests about True Parents’ legacy in America.
