UPF-Congo-Brazzaville Convenes Ambassadors for Peace

Congo Brazzaville-2021-12-24-The Creative Minority for a Heavenly Congo in Unity, Work & Progress

Congo-Brazzaville—The December workshop for Ambassadors for Peace, “The Creative Minority for a Heavenly Congo in Unity, Work & Progress,” was held December 18 & 24, 2021 in Pointe-Noire Prefecture. There were 60 participants on December 18 and 25 participants on December 24. It was covered by national television. The sponsors included Globaline, Bralico and Ambassadors for Peace.

In accordance with our 2021 activity program, the UPF of Pointe-Noire organized its end-of-year seminar. This workshop took place in two phases. Phase 1 took place on December 18, 2021 in the Mwanz community hall located in the 6th Ngoyo District. The Pointe-Noire Prefecture was represented by the secretary general of UPF, Mr. Jean Claude Etoumbakoundou. The Town Hall of Ngoyo was represented by the Administrator-Mayor, Mr. Wilfrid Paka Banthoud.

The workshop began with an interfaith invocation by the departmental leader of the FFWPU, Maixent Milolo, followed by a word of welcome from Mr. Paka Banthoud. Then the departmental chairman, Bounda Michel, explained the context of the workshop, and invited the Ambassadors for Peace to unite their efforts for a more stable Congo in peace and in unity.

Mr. Etoumbakoundou took the floor to give the opening remarks and then led the workshop.

Highlights of the workshop:

The secretary general of UPF Pointe-Noire, Augustin Zodji, developed the main theme: “The Creative Minority for a Heavenly Congo in Unity, Work and Progress.” He used the approach of the unification of the spirit and the body as well as that of the unification of the male and female polarities to explain, in depth, the holistic vision of the motto of Congo, which is “Unity * Work * Progress,” to invite the public to get involved in the development of Congo.

The national leader of FFWPU in Congo, Rev. Norbert Ndielle, presented the five Universal Principles to the ambassadors before the nomination of the new laureates.

Then, 5 new Ambassadors for Peace were appointed, followed by the presentation of the autobiography of Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, Mother of Peace.

The participants shared a meal at the end of the workshop.

Phase 2: On December 24, 2021, the same program was continued, this time with 25 participants at the Hotel Le Ruisseau in Pointe-Noire. During this program, two new laureates were nominated as Ambassadors for Peace.
