Jeong-Ho Ha, pastor of Pyeongtek Church
March 29, 2013
I am introducing the hoondok devotion of Eun-Ju Lee, a fifth grader at elementary
school and the first daughter of Jae-Myeong Lee and Yayoi Taru, a 360 million blessed
couple. Perhaps all of you will be surprised.
Since the nationwide hoondok devotion of reading the One-Hour Lecture Manual 100
times began in May 2012, Eun Ju Lee, too, started it. In the beginning, everybody
thought that simply because others were doing it, she was also doing it as a girl whose
hobby was to read books always. But, while most other people, after finishing reading it
100 times, were doing hoondok only to some degree, she since then became happy and
interested in hoondok and has been doing it after school until bedtime, thus covering
the One-Hour Manual 100 times, the Three-Hour Manual 100 times, Messages of Peace 6 times, Cheon Seong Gyeong 1 time, and Father’s autobiography 100 times. She is now
reading Wolli Gangron (Exposition of the Divine Principle) for the 85th time. Isn’t it
As a pastor, I was so moved that I asked her why she could do hoondok that ardently.
According to her, she wonders why, but hoondok brings a full of grace, and she does it
because she feels like doing so. Furthermore, Eun-Ju Lee is a very bright and beautiful
girl. She also studies well. She is a filial child for her parents. Her family is a blessed
family, and her father is a model general affairs person of the church.
But, the financial hardship, with which her grandfather and her father struggled with,
was very serious. Surprisingly, however, thanks to Eun-Ju’s hoondok devotion, various
family problem and financial problems which have not been solved for tens of years are
being solved. And, recently whatever is decided in their minds is materialized as it is,
and they feel that their situation has changed due to hoondok devotion.
From now Eun-Ju Lee wants to become the best DP lecturer, and it is her dream. We feel
that she is spiritually and physically a very beautiful child like a spring that wells up.
Below is her 5-minute testimony given at the church service on March 3.
Testimony of Eun-Ju Lee
Hello. I am Eun-Ju Lee, a fifth grader at elementary school. I started hoondok from May last year. Until now I have done the One-Hour Manual 100 times, the Three-Hour Manual 100 times, Messages of Peace 6 times, Cheon Seong Gyeong 1 time, and Father’s autobiography 100 times. I am now reading Exposition of the Divine Principle for a 85th time.
During the hoondok period, I went to a workshop held at Kuri for the training of DP lecturers. There, the teacher and True Father said that we second generation members all must become DP lecturers. By going to the workshop at Kuri after reading a lecture manual 100 times, I could understand the content well.
Among the books I read until now, Messages of Peace was very interesting.
And now, I am doing hoondok with my sister, who is a third grader, and my brother,who is 7 years old. My sister first started with me and is now reading the 12-Hour Manual for the 7th time. My brother is now reading Very Happy Words for the 5th time.
The goal of this year is to read the testimony of President Gil Ja Sa Eu, and The Restoration of True God’s Fatherland (given from my pastor) 100 times.
