Peace Tour Builds UPF in Australia

Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon, her son, Dr. Hyun Jin Moon and his wife Jun Sook arrived in Sydney to deliver the UPF peace messages and were welcomed by Dr. and Mrs. Yong Cheol Song, Ambassador for Peace Hon. David Clarke of the Parliament of New South Wales, Robyn Ledesma, Rev. Rick McInerheney, Karen Judd Smith, and other families and Ambassadors for Peace.

After the initial greetings and meetings at the InterContinental Hotel, the party took a mid-day boat ride around Sydney Harbor. God gave them a spectacular day, sunny bright and full of fresh air and beautiful views. It was a rare and precious moment for them to be together as a family in such a beautiful setting.

The main event was convened at Sydney’s “Angel Place” Recital Hall, an elegant hall with excellent ambiance and acoustics. A “Peace Choir Competition” featured nine professional choirs representing various communities in Sydney such as Tongans, Samoans, Indonesian Catholics, Melkites, Thais, Sikhs, Bosnians, Lebanese, and Africans. These choirs performed for the first hour. Each group was dressed beautifully in traditional clothing.

Dignitaries in attendance included Hon. David Clarke and Hon. Anthony Roberts from the Parliament of New South Wales; Sir Thomas and Lady Carla Davis, former Prime Minister of the Cook Islands; Rabbi Dr. Brikha Nasoraia, head of the community of Mandaean Gnostics; Imam Jasmin Bekric of the Bosnian Muslim community; and Mr. Aziz Akbar.

In reading the Founder's Address, Dr. Hyun Jin Moon represented his father with confidence and warm, bringing the word to life, and preparing the way for Mother Moon’s delivery of the peace message.

Hon. David Clarke gave congratulatory remarks praising the speakers and the message of peace, reconciliation, and true family ideals.

The Tongan choir won the first prize and closed the program with a rousing version of “Kumbaya” that brought everyone to their feet. The evening closed with a reception for about 100 Ambassadors for Peace.
