Cheon Jeong Gung at Chung Pyung on 10.4 by the H.C.

That day, participants at the 12th WFWPU Leaders’ Workshop joined the meeting.

“When we had the helicopter incident, mother and I heard Shin Jun (and other True grandchildren) calling ‘King Father, King Mother, King Father, King Mother’, and we thought we couldn’t die there. When I heard they were calling, I thought we must escape from the helicopter within 17 minutes (before it burns) otherwise they would die.”

Then Father explained in detail how he could come out from the helicopter. (When his upper body came out from it) “I thought I would survive. Heaven protected me. Then I shouted ‘Ya, King Father and King Mother are here!’ Then they said ‘King Father and King Mother, we will be with you and please wait a second!” Then Father explained the technical advantage of the helicopter that blocked passengers’ room from fire in the beginning. “Nobody shed blood and no clothes were torn. Such a outcome had never happened in the history of aircraft accidents.”

Then Father told True grandchildren to sing Grandmother Flower several times, which Father let the children sang right after the incidents to encourage themselves. The following are the lyrics and the English translation of the song.

Grandmother flower on the back hill, grandmother flower with thorns,
were you old from when you sprouted, grandmother flower with hoary hair?
You could have chosen from tens of millions of different flowers,
why choose to be a thorny and stooped grandmother flower?
Hahahaha, you are funny, you stooped grandmother flower!
A grandmother flower when you’re young, and a grandmother flower when you’re old!
