To help the more than 50 attendees celebrate WFWP’s 25th Anniversary in Los Angeles, Mrs. Angelika Selle, President WFWP USA, attended and brought us new insight on the direction WFWP is taking. During the first session, Angelika introduced WFWP’s founders Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon and Rev. Sun Myung Moon and spoke about their vision for WFWP. She gave a brief history of WFWP’s accomplishments. Many guests were surprised to hear about the 1600 ladies that were sent from Japan to 172 countries soon after its founding, to establish service projects around the world. Many of those projects still exist today, including seven WFWP schools in Africa.Angelika thanked all the Japanese guests in the room, one of whom had gone out with those ladies. She also honored Mrs. Sheri Rueter…
Editorial Note: Sheri Rueter, former Vice-President of WFWP and also chairwoman of Southern California is also known as the "Queen of the Bridge of Peace". Sheri together with a small group of women brought the Bridge of Peace to Public Schools, other organizations, and cities in the Southern California area back in the nineties and conveys the heart of it so beautifully. Sheri received the international Global Citizenship Award at the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of WFWP International. We truly appreciate her!I am so honored to celebrate 25 years of WFWP with you today. This is a very simple bridge; but it is very beautiful to me and to many of the women who are gathered here today. This bridge is a memory we hold in our hearts, a…
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.…
