4. Matching Retreat for Older Candidates
A message from one of our Matching Supporter Coordinators about a retreat to help older brothers and sisters receive the Blessing:
Dear Beloved Brothers & Sisters,
My name is Anne-Marie Mylar, I am a Matching Supporter Coordinator for the Blessing and Family Ministry–USA. I work very closely with Crescentia DeGoede and John Abelseth, who leads the BFD in Canada.
The BFM is very serious about organizing a special retreat for our single older brothers and sisters to allow them to meet in person for the purpose of trying to possibly find a spouse to attend a future blessing of our True parents in 2019. At this point in time I do not have much details to share with you, except for the following:
The venue will be within USA
You will have 3 months between the official announcement and the actual event, so you have plenty of time to prepare.
The retreat will be for individual 35 years old and older.
Who can participate: Single (Divorcees and previously blessed OK) First Generation and Blessed children Members from our Affiliate communities (ACLC, UPF, and others)
Every one must have a clear understanding of what the marriage blessing is all about. What do we mean about clear understanding of the Marriage Blessing:
The Affiliate person (ACLC, UPF or other) need to realize the process that will take place if they choose to attend the Blessing from our True Parents. They have to be willing to do the 5 steps.
We do not have any problems finding ladies to attend such a retreat, but in order to make it meaningful we also need to find the gentlemen. Please make sure that someone who could benefit from such a retreat is notified and connect with us directly as well as with their pastor.
Please write to me at anything if you have any questions,
