Southern California

I came to the US in 1983 from Japan. Since then I have been living and working in the US. I have always loved the activities of WFWP and have had a strong desire to establish WFWP where I live in San Diego, California. The closest chapter to us is very far away and difficult to go to. However, until now, it wasn’t possible because I could not gather at least three ladies to really begin WFWP activities where I live.My friend Keiko Loew and I began praying and speaking together every day at 5 o’clock in the morning and continued for more than three months. Even though there were only two of us during that time, we were so moved by reading about the vision and mission of WFWP,…
On May 29, 2016 more than 120 women gathered to participate in the Bridge of Peace Ceremony in South Gate, California. The Bridge of Peace ceremony is the signature project of the Women's Federation for World Peace. Crossing the Bridge of Peace is an opportunity for those who participate to experience healing and reconciliation. No one is exempt from the need for this. I felt deeply the need for peace in the world today and decided to organize and hold the ceremony during Memorial Day weekend which gave it even greater meaning. Having the ceremony then gave the participants the experience of the vision, knowledge, and reality that peace really does begin with each of us. The City of South Gate is located geographically in the center of Los Angeles.…
WFWP was part of the invitational committee to celebrate the first anniversary of the ascension of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, husband of our founder, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. The event was held on September 7, 2013 at the New Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Los Angeles, CA. After a video of Rev. Moon's life, we heard testimonials from clergy of various religious organizations. The words that touched me most came from Imam Haithan Bundakji who said, "Rev. Moon taught me the Divine Principle through the eyes of the Quran, and through this I was able to put the words, "true love" into my dictionary. Until then my heart was filled with hate. Now I can honestly say that I love you all as my brothers and sisters." Ms.…

Mary's Heart and Hands

October 6th, 2013
WFWP San Diego has begun working with "Hearts and Hands, A Yarn Ministry." I have been busy preparing items to donate. The pictures are hats for the homeless and cancer patients in the San Diego area. The women of the Hearts and Hands group also make lacy shawls, baby blankets, and hats that will be donated to homeless men and women in San Diego, cancer patients, and new mothers who might not have any money for clothing or a blanket in a hospital, and they knit and crochet much much more for charity. They donate items to Ronald McDonald house charity, to parents staying at Ronald McDonald House, to the homeless men, women, and children in San Diego. They also donate to the poor people in Romania, to the children's…
Mother/Daughter Bridge of Peace Ceremony ends up uniting both guys and gals On May 19, the Southern California chapter decided to use the Bridge of Peace Ceremony to bring together mothers and daughters. Unexpectedly, the ceremony also united mothers and sons, husbands and wives, and brothers and sisters. The event was held in a beautiful garden where the original Bridge of Peace - used in uncountable sisterhood ceremonies in years past - was carefully built and decorated. Tables provided participants with space for sharing together and with chances for lessons in makeup, having their nails painted or purchasing our local young entrepreneurs' wares. The Bridge of Peace Ceremony began with an introduction to WFWP given by Southern California Chairwoman Emma Reed. Then Sheri Rueter, former Chairwoman and one of the…
