World Peace Blessing

After the words of welcome by the emcee, Jean Kpétiabodé, the opening prayer was said by Pastor Ndongou Jean Baptiste. The Chairman’s Address was read by Jean Paul Gerekombwanga.

The welcome speech was given by Hon. Laurent Gomina Pampali, who has been an Ambassador for Peace since 2003. Speaking of peacebuilding, he asked the audience, “Is it possible to say that such a mission is difficult? Each effort carried out contributes in an irreversible way to the realization of God’s ideal family and a world of peace! We may expect to be disavowed and humiliated as we fight the spiritual battle to carry out this mission. But let us remain plain and interdependent, open and attached to the five universal principles which should inspire our nation.”

The Founder's message was read by Rev. Salogba, who with his wife officiated at the prayer for blessing of marriage. One hundred and twenty Ambassadors for Peace were appointed on this occasion.

The general impression of the participants was an appreciation for the message of peace which reinforced the importance of the family and recommitment to marriage. People also sensed the need for more education for Ambassadors for Peace.

The event was covered by radio, television and four large newspapers.
