When I was young like you, what did I do?

The room was full with STF members and others that day. Father said, “Can you speak Korean? (Then Father asked the same question in Korean) Korean is the language of the Heavenly nation. It is the language of ancestors. You should know it.”
“When I was young like you, what did I do? That is a puzzle for you.”
“A special area in the US is Las Vegas, a special area in Las Vegas is the Hoover Dam, and a special area in the Hoover Dam area is the Grand Canyon.”
“(Indicating his face) Why do we have eyes here? Why do we have a nose here? Why do we have a mouth here? Why do we have ears here? Before creation, there had been presentative ideas.”
The following is the report by Rev. Chang Shik Yang at the meeting:
“2010 will be recorded in God’s providence as one of the most important years. Firstly, this year is the Golden Anniversary of True Parents. Father is now 91 years old this year (Father said at that time “I am 93 years old.”) and Father is so energetic. Mother is almost 70 years old now but she never gets old. (Everybody clapped with cheers). This year, when Father was in Korea, he spent time in Yeosu, and when he was in the US, he spent time in Las Vegas.
In Las Vegas, Father decided the title of his speech as “Proclamation of the Firm Establishment of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, and the Substantial Word of God” and made plans for assemblies. Also, in Las Vegas, Father started the festival for the Seunghwa Ceremony, which will be one of the core cultures for establishing Abel UN. Also, this year, Father announced the 8 teaching materials and textbooks.
We have 784 days to go until January 13, 2013. Father is counting it down every day towards Foundation Day while offering the utmost Jeong Seong. One of the great features in Las Vegas is that there is no distinction between day and night. Recently one of Father’s important topics in his speech is ‘The God of Night, the God of Day, the King of Kings, and True Parents.’ The God of Night and the God of Day are both for 24 hours.”
The following is the report by Rev. Jeong Sun Jo:
“The Grand Canyon and the Hoover Dam are beautiful, but every time I see Father and Mother who come to Hoon Dok Hae with their hands together, I feel they are most beautiful.
I can tell now that Father has been offering nothing but Jeong Seong here in Las Vegas which is like Sodom and Gomorrah. Usually when people hear that Father went to Las Vegas, they tend to think ‘Father will start some business there.’ But Father, except for purchasing the Cheon Hwa Gung, did not start any business. He has offered Jeong Seong day and night for two years.
‘Do you think I came here since I like the US? I came here since I felt pity for her. Also, God loves this country, and as the second Israel, I must save this nation for God’s providence.”’
The following is the report by Rev. Jeong Ok Yu:
“Without knowing the principle, we will wobble in our faith and it will be difficult for us to leave behind our past in the fallen world. We were born and had been raised in the Satanic world, and therefore, there was no way for us to enter the original world of God. That’s why Father has been teaching us day and night. Also, the reason why Father tells leaders to speak is because he wants them to share some part of his education to members.
The most important thing Father has done this year is his announcement of the heavenly calendar centering on his birthday.”
The following is the report by Rev. Ki Hun Kim:
“When Father came to the US, he said he had come here to save the country by saving Christianity. This year, Father proclaimed Korea is God’s homeland, but he did not do it just receiving God’s revelation. Knowing it from the beginning, he has worked to make such a foundation.”
