The spirit was good on all three nights of the revival. The guests and ministers were happy to fellowship together. The hosting church was quite happy that we had the revival there. The ministers who gave the sermons had a tendency to be a little too "New Testamenty". Pastor Cullen tried to testify about True Father although he could have done a little more than he did. I did the emcee for all three nights hoping to steer the revival according to the main themes and to say something about True Parents role in initiating the revival and founding the United Federation for Churches.
In preparing to have the event we had a hard time getting
speakers and a hosting church. Even though it was supposed to be easy
but we had a difficult time setting this revival up maybe for seasonal
reasons. Only one of core watch recipient ministers could participate
in the event. Most of the ministers were having their own revivals, conferences,
oversesas travel and vacation Bible schools. Basically we put this revival
together at the last week before the scheduled event. Our local UC church
members and missionaries were an immense help in providing the atmosphere
and attendance. In conclusion we all had hoped that there would have been
more testimonies and especially in relationship to True Father.
