Dawn of a New Era
Dawn of a New Era contains the recollections of 31 European young members of the Unification Movement, who, in 1975, volunteered to go to foreign countries as pioneers of their faith.
From the preface:
The missionaries describe their experiences in a frank and personal way. They do not gloss over anything in order to show how God helped them and how they could be His instruments in an uncertain situation and an unknown world. Their own growth parallels the development of their mission, stirs the reader’s heart and fosters the understanding of a living, loving God.
During their youth many had not been to another country or been exposed to other cultures or languages. Every single testimony bears witness to how our missionaries found themselves in situations that they could not have mastered without God’s guidance.
Despite many obstacles, they had to find a way to fulfill their mission. And they wanted to fulfill it – they persevered and developed amazing creativity in the process.
Thus, the testimonies of our missionaries show the complexity between human weakness and the power of our Heavenly Parent. They bear witness to a historic endeavor that laid the worldwide foundation for the development and dissemination of God’s message for our time to establish a peaceful world.
“These stories are not solely our own, but those of our mission countries and their first Unificationist members. For the benefit of our worldwide membership and the general public, we saw the need to present our testimonies in the English language. We formed a small working team and revised each story with the author. It is our deep-felt desire to let readers from different backgrounds ‘walk in our footsteps' and ‘see through our eyes’ the world we experienced many years ago, as we struggled to share God’s Heart of love for His children. Consequently, the testimonies articulate our experiences in an individual way – as each of us is unique and walked a unique path. The result is the book you hold in your hands.”
