16  I have visited many nations before coming to Kenya, and I have observed that True Parents' teachings produce miracles. Up to now, life in Africa may have been difficult, but if you are born anew through these teachings, you will become strong and prosperous and will make major contributions to the world. It is important for you not to lose this opportunity. Therefore, you now have no reason to envy any other nation. In the Bible, it is recorded that Jesus said, "The last will be first, and the first will be last." This describes the age in which we live. Do not let God's blessing slip out from between your fingers.

17  I understand that Tanzania is facing many challenges today. I have heard that there are many orphans here who lost their parents because of family problems or AIDS. Other countries in Africa also face this kind of sad situation. For this reason, Africa urgently needs a movement for purity and a movement for true family values. You must go forth and purify Africa anew through movements for purity and true family values. The situation of Korea in the 1950s after the war was more difficult than your current situation. At that time, Father mobilized a small number of people to lay the foundation on which Korea could grow and prosper. In those difficult pioneering days, Father launched a campaign for education throughout the country, focusing on middle and high school students. He taught reading and writing in the countryside and concentrated his efforts in rural communities. Because he made that foundation, Korea now takes its place among the ranks of advanced nations. Your current condition is not as difficult as Korea was at that time. There are other nations nearby that are in a situation similar to yours. Also, you have many nations that can assist you. If you maintain the consciousness of being an owner and move forward enthusiastically, if you are determined to revive this country, thinking that a 24-hour day is too short, there will be hope for this nation.

18  You need to stand at the forefront of restoring Ethiopia and turn it into a strong nation. To do that, you have to launch a citizens' educational campaign. The ambassadors for peace gathered here should do the same. You have to begin this movement with your family and with the people around you. You need to practice a life of true love so that all citizens can live in happiness and peace. Father started alone from a place where he had nothing. He started without anyone's help. Yet he built this worldwide foundation. We can only call it a miracle. Of course, it was possible because God was with us. I hope you do not forget that God is also with you.

South America and Oceania

19  While touring Africa, I mentioned the fact that True Father mobilized our members and launched a citizens' educational campaign in circumstances where Korea lay in ruins as a result of the Korean War. At that time, because there were not many adult members in the church, even a lot of middle and high school students were mobilized. They enthusiastically developed a campaign to teach literacy and awaken the national spirit. True Father created this as a means to help spread the Korean government's New Village Movement to the entire nation, thus playing a major role in making Korea the prosperous country it is today. With the addition of the "New Mind Movement," which was based on the teachings of the Principle, Korea was able to enter today's ranks of advanced nations even more quickly. In the background of Korea becoming a central nation, both spiritually and economically, True Fathers contribution was highly significant. Africa is in a better situation than Korea of the 1950s and 1960s. Africa has incredibly fertile land. Anything planted there can flourish. Why, then, do its people sometimes face famine or the outbreak of disease? Development in some areas has been limited because the nation's leader does not have the consciousness of true ownership. He does not think, "’This people is truly my family, and this country belongs to all of us.’"

The teachings given to you today are the textbook and teaching materials for your lives. If we practice these teachings, there is nothing we cannot do. They teach us everything about how we should live. We must reflect and repent: why aren't we able to live in prosperity, able to witness, and able to develop? Visiting Uruguay and looking around the streets of Montevideo, I do not feel the city is prospering as much as it might. Those of you in Uruguay need to reflect deeply. You have received an enormous blessing. You are called true olive trees, while the people of the world who still have not been restored are like wild olive trees. If you cannot multiply, you will eventually diminish. You have to solve everything by yourselves. Discard any expectation that others will do your job for you. Please work with devotion, thinking, "This is my job and I will put my life on the line.""

20  At one time, the people of Argentina lived in affluence. In order for Argentina to rise again, you have to change your mind-set. In order to do that, you need to equip all citizens with the teachings of the Principle. Blessed family members and ambassadors for peace have to unite and stand at the forefront of building a new nation. If you make such a resolution at the gathering for the Return to the Original Fatherland and Hometown on July 30, 2006, you will reap the benefits of my visiting here. Whether your nation takes first place or falters depends on your results. I hope you engrave in your minds that the restoration of Argentina rests on your shoulders.

21  In the task of establishing Bolivia as a nation that can stand in front of God, your responsibility is greater than that of anyone else. You have an opportunity. You should bring many people to fulfill God's Will, such as those who participated in the Universal Peace Federation gathering for the Return to the Original Fatherland and Hometown and the Blessing event. While touring Africa this time, I felt that we can establish it as a place where people can live affluently, based on the effort they make. They have fertile land. Some may live in poverty, but they do not need to. Likewise, True Parents' teachings can help the Bolivian people mature and also revive Bolivia as a nation that receives the Blessing.

22  The more you make people aware of True Parents and the more widely you spread the teachings you heard at the gathering for the Return to the Original Fatherland and Hometown held on August 1, 2006, the more hope you will have. The era of heavenly fortune has come. Because of that, you have an important responsibility. There are many second-generation children of blessed families in Colombia. You have to create an environment in which they can freely practice true love in their lives. Many nations are suffering severely from family and drug problems, among others. Colombia too suffers misery from the problems of drugs, violence and AIDS, especially in their effect upon youth. The movement promoting true love and true family values can solve these problems. Accordingly, you have to reform this nation's image and demonstrate this through your deeds. You have to take action so that there is no one in any corner of this country who does not know about True Parents. You need to plant the traditions of true family, true love and true lineage. Once you have developed the various aspects of our movement, such as the Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles, you have to work so that Colombia will be remembered by God.

23  When I visited Africa, I told the people there, "Compared to the Middle East, where people in Israel enjoy prosperity in a land that is practically a desert, Africa is a land that is blessed by God. Why isn't Africa living up to its full potential? We need to convey True Parents' teachings in order to help." There is no path to revive Africa other than by conveying these teachings. I told them, "If, after receiving this new philosophy and being born again, you go out and spread the true love of True Parents to your family and neighborhood, and reach further into your nation, God's Will can be accomplished quickly. If you do that, your nation will take the lead no less than advanced nations." The movement to become new people who have been born again internally, based on True Parents' teachings, has a sense of urgency. Those of you who have traveled to Korea know that Korea has risen to the level of a developed nation. Especially in the field of the Internet, it is ahead of every other country in the world. Depending on your resolve, your nation of Jamaica can also experience a major transformation in a very short time. True Parents are just one couple, but we created the groundwork that can change the world. You too can change Jamaica and move the world. There are many blessed family members in this nation. You can condense the time to restore Jamaica; it depends on the type of resolution you make.

24  The Bahamas, an island nation in the Caribbean, is where Columbus landed when he began his discovery of the new continent in 1492. After being a colony of Spain for a long time, it became a territory of Great Britain, and finally gained independence in July 1973. Our holding of the Universal Peace Federation gathering for the Return to the Original Fatherland and Hometown in the archipelago of the Bahamas, which is made up of about 700 islands, can only be regarded as God's great blessing. We have come a long distance on this tour. I arrived in Nassau on August 4, 2006, and tasted the joy of meeting people whom God had prepared over a long period of time. On this tour, I have been conveying our teachings and conducting the Blessing. The only path for the Bahamas, if it is to stand again in front of God, is to passionately receive True Parents and these teachings. Please carry out your activities enthusiastically, so that the Bahamas can receive God's blessing.
