Until now WMSCOG has got all kinds of awards such as the Certificate of Recognition, the Certificate of Appreciation, the Certificate of Merit, the Certificate of Commendation and the Certificate of Award.
Even WMSCOG had been awarded the highest medal, the Medal for Merit as well as the Medal of Honor by the two former presidents, which meant the best honor given to a person. The reason of the latest award is all the more significant is that the Presidential Citation awarded on the 20th Marine Day was the highest group award. It proves WMSCOG to be worth of the best organization, since the Presidential Citation should be given to the most valuable group recognized to be helpful and friendly to the community and contribute to the nation.
We are being busy nowadays to share the great news with the family members, the friends and the acquaintances. And a story from one of the congregation of WMSCOG makes me happy and laughing.
A 10-year-old girl, who is a daughter of the sister from the women’s group, wanted to introduce the award of the Presidential Citation that WMSCOG has received recently to her father who is not attending Church of God. She pondered for a long time how she would start to talk with him. Then she chose the way for questioning to her father, so that he would realize her purpose and understand for himself at the end of the conversation.
“Daddy, I have a question.”she made a start. “Is it a math question? I can help you with any math questions.” Her father answered her with an affection. “Later on. This time, I’m curious about something.” “Okay, so what is it?” “Daddy, have you ever received an award when you were a student?” she asked. “What kind of award? I was awarded for Perfect Attendance many times, but a few times for the special awards.” her father answered. The young daughter asked again, “Daddy, is it difficult to receive the Excellence Award in the contest?” “Yes, of course. I received only the Participation Award.” “Oh, did you? Then, how about the Grand Prize?” she asked. Her father laughed and went on kindly, “The Grand Prize? Oh, dear! It is very hard to take it, because it is not given to anybody. Only one who deserves it can be awarded the Top Prize. He must be so honored.” “I see. You mean that receiving the Grand Prize is exceedingly difficult. Also it is not for ‘every man Jack’.” she intentionally repeated her father’s answer. He reacted to her, “Needless to say, just being awarded an Award Certificate and an Achievement Award is not easy.”
At that moment the young girl shouted, pretending that some idea came into her mind, “Daddy, then, how about the Presidential Citation?” “The Presidential Citation? As long as you are not kidding, we, the normal persons, cannot imagine to receive it. It is extremely valuable and honorable award, I truly assure.” The daughter got a grin on her face, and said, “Daddy, do you know that?” Her father smiled at her, “Go on, sweetly.”
She continued with delight, “My church; the World Mission Society Church of God [WMSCOG] was awarded the highest medal, the Medal for Merit. And recently the Presidential Citation, too. Someone told me that it is the highest group award only given to the best organization. It means WMSCOG is the best organization. Is it right? I’m so proud of being the member of WMSCOG. It is so nice and wonderful, isn’t it?”
Her father was amazed and became speechless for a moment. “Are you sure? Was it the Presidential Citation?” he repeated after a while. “Definitely, I’m sure, daddy.” She went on, “Even I have the newspaper which contains an article about it. It tells us that the World Mission Society Church of God [WMSCOG] was awarded with the Presidential Citation on the 20th Marine Day.” “Let me see. Could you give me the newspaper?” After reading the article for a while, he told, “It is certainly surprising news. To be honest, I thought you were kidding.”
The young girl kept going about an award, “The Ministry of Ocean and Fisheries awarded WMSCOG on behalf of the president, Ms. Park. And he praised a lot how much the members of WMSCOG have been devoting for the community and nation. If the rumors related to our church are true, the government never give the highest group award to WMSCOG, right? And there is no other organizations except our church to do a lot of voluntary activities to help people in disasters and do environmental campaigns and blood donations and…” “Oh, I see. Sweetly, I cannot help but accept that your church did good job.” “Daddy, I hope that you would no longer say WMSCOG as ‘your church’. From now on it can be daddy’s church as well as my church.” “What do you mean by ‘daddy’s church’?” he asked her. The little girl held his hand and said, “Daddy, let’s attend WMSCOG. And let’s keep the Sabbath Day with mom and me together.” “Oh, dear. Give me the time to consider it.” “You spent enough time so far. Answer me now, daddy.” Her father laughed and told her, “I got it, sweety. Let’s go to the Church of God tomorrow.” The daughter hurrahed, “Wow, hooray! Finally we become the REAL family. We are the heavenly family.”
She came back to her room and put her little hands together and prayed to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Jerusalem Mother (God the Mother), giving the glory and thanks to Them.
The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG), believing in “God the Mother”, are practicing the love of “God the Mother” and showing Her favor based on the philanthropy.
