Peace Tours

Peace Tour Builds UPF in Chile

Santiago, Chile - Chile was blessed abundantly during the visit of Mrs. Hak Ja Han Moon and her daughter Sun Jin and son-in-law In Sup Park as they came to bring UPF's message of peace on August 9 and 10. It had rained the day before and even that same morning, but the sky suddenly cleared up just prior to their arrival. Then a brilliant rainbow proudly shone forth over Santiago, an unusual climatic occurrence in Chile, showing the promise of the blessings that God was about to bestow upon our nation.

The group was accompanied by the Latin American Continental Director, Rev. Jung Soon Cho and his wife, as well as Rev. Jung Soo Kim of Costa Rica, Dr. Kim of Venezuela, Dr. Thomas Walsh, Alejandro de Souza, and Won Ju McDevitt. Although obviously tired, the visitors showed incredible spirit and warmth as they shared with local organizers before the evening’s event.

Former Miss Chile and prestigious TV news anchorwoman, Cecilia Serrano, was the MC. Other Ambassadors for Peace and distinguished guests in attendance included national senator Carlos Cantero; governor of Easter Island, Carolina Hotu; famous peace activist, Ana Fresno de Leighton; and many others from government, universities, and religious organizations. Former presidents Patricio Alwin and Eduardo Frei were among those who sent letters of support. Everyone present was deeply moved and challenged by the heart and total dedication of Mrs. Moon and her family.

Even though Chile is primarily Roman Catholic and somewhat conservative, the audience opened its hearts to the peace messages conveyed by Sun Jin Mrs. Moon. Both speeches reached deeply into the minds and hearts of the audience of 700 people. The blessing in marriage prayer completed the event, filling the grand ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel with a strong ambiance of reflection and rededication.

The gathering the following morning allowed organizers and Ambassadors for Peace to connect more deeply with Mrs. Moon and her family. Sun Jin and In Sup rounded out the experience with a beautiful duet.
