We are disappointed that Mrs. Misue Nakao (Tengen Head Minister's wife) couldn't make the trip here due to a sprained ankle. She was scheduled to arrive on Feb 5 to attend our monthly service this month, meet our congregation and deliver her message for the Women's Association.
While she has said that she needs to reflect on her situation and spiritual growth, I believe that we, the Pearl Church congregation, should also do some soul searching, that is to reflect on our respective situations and see how we can advance on the path to spiritual maturity that will be deserving of a visit by Mrs. Misue and receive the Truth of Jiba.
Recently we read about a church that is very active and have resolved to administer the sazuke 1,000 times every month. In order that we may receive the Truth of Jiba, thereby advance of the path to spiritual maturity and realize the Joyous Life world as intended by God the Parent we have set a similar goal on a smaller scale. Our goal is to administer the sazuke at least 100 times every month. Last month between Taeko and myself we administered the sazuke 37 times. We plan to increase that, but we would need help to attain 100. If you have adminsitered the sazuke whether it was on your child or other person or however many times to the same person on the same day (maximum is 6 on same person in a 24 hours), please send me an email as to the name, date and number of times so that we may record and keep track of number of sazuke. Please help us attain this goal! It is the goal to the Joyous Life!
