Funded the contras through SMOM and in 1984, "the National Catholic Reporter obtained a memo tying Nicaragua's pro-contra Archbishop Miguel Obando y Bravo. Obando had sought financial help for training anti-Sandinisti '"pastoral cadres". J. Peter Grace arranged for his Sarita Kennedy East Foundation to send Bibles, rosary beads and other supplies to Obando who said he would build anti-Sandinista opposition through the promotion of "lay organizations," including Catholic charismatic community Ciudad de Dios. The Grace memo referred to lay groups as "the best organized opposition in Nicaragua to the present government efforts to change the country into a Marxist-Leninist society." 9 

Past Judge for Templeton Prize and endorsed Sir John Templeton and the book published by his Templeton Press,  “Looking Forward celebrates the triumph of the human spirit at the dawn of a new millennium. In his usual thorough way, Sir John brings together the best thinking of the best minds of our time and, in the process, conveys his own incorrigible optimism and fervent belief in our essential spirituality.” 10 

Former chairman of Radio Free Europe 11 , which was a CIA major propaganda operation. Former Radio Free Europe (RFE) and Radio Liberty (RL) president Sig Mickelson writes of the CIA"s major radio propaganda operations and refers to "the Far East Broadcasting Company, a U.S. government operation with intelligence ties similar to RFE and RL. Its signals were aimed at Japan and China." 12  The book "Broadcasting Freedom draws on rare archival material and offers a penetrating insider history of the radios that helped change the face of Europe. Arch Puddington reveals new information about the connections between RFE-RL and the CIA, which provided covert funding for the stations during the critical start-up years in the early 1950s. " 13 

"One component of the U.S. strategy for victory in the Cold War...the leading set of government-sponsored "private" organizations were the National Committee for a Free Europe, the related Crusade for Freedom, and its beneficiary, Radio Free Europe. The National Committee was headed by 'political warfare" specialist C.D. Jackson, who began his career as right-hand man to Henry Luce in his Time-Life-Fortune magazine publishing enterprise. During World War II, Jackson headed the United States Psychological Warfare Division...From that position, Jackson became a leading advocate of corporate-government collaboration to influence public opinion...The CIA-financed Radio Free Europe was considered the most important piece of this operation...Through Radio Free Europe, the National Committee for a Free Europe directed CIA funds to the Assembly of Captive European Nations (ACEN)...According to author Christopher Simpson, whose study of the U.S. government's recruitment of pro-Nazi East European emigres' relies heavily on declassified intelligence documents..."the ACEN became the showcase of the CIA's numerous exile projects..." 14 

Scott Anderson and John Lee Anderson, authors of Inside the League, describe the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations ( ABN) as: 'the largest and most important umbrella for Nazi collaborators in the world...A prime criterion for membership appears to be fealty to the cause of National Socialism; ABN officers constitute a virtual Who's Who of those responsible for the massacre of millions of civilians in the bloodiest war in history.'...July 13, 1982, [ABN's] Yaroslov Stetsko, a man who went to prison for participating in the murder of Polish officials, who once proclaimed his devotion to the Nazis, whose followers assisted in the slaughter of Jews in the Ukraine, sat in the center of the front row of a reception hall to hear Reagan announce, "Your dream is our dream. Your hope is our hope."...Roman Zwaryz, an ABN official, told a reporter in 1984, "the Captive Nations Week ceremonies...have been... an indicator of a basic, fundamental shift in American foreign policy...we are being consulted as to the content of [Radio Liberty] broadcasts being sent into the Ukraine...The effect of those consultations could be seen in 1985; at the beginning of Reagan's second term in office, congressional investigators found that Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe were broadcasting "unacceptable material...characterized as ant-Semitic, anti-Catholic or even anti-Western" into the Soviet bloc. Among the offending broadcasts was "a positive description of the Nazi unit Galizien [Galician SS], which was responsible for allowing Ukrainians to murder thousands of Jews in Lvov." 15 

"In February 1985, former Justice Department attorney John Loftus sent Congress a report detailing his suspicions that [William] Casey and [General John] Singlaub [CNP], using the World Anti-Communist League, had resurrected an old private conduit system for laundering money to "freedom fighters." The old conduit was Crusade for Freedom, a public charity established by retired General Lucius Clay that provided "private" support for the National Committee for a Free Europe (now Radio Free Europe) and the American Committee for Liberation (now Radio Liberty). The Two committees-home to Nazis and Nazi collaborators who, as Loftus noted, migrated to WACL--were secretly laundering government money to Eastern Europe insurgents at the direction of the NSC and the State Department's clandestine Office of Policy Coordination..."close to 20 privately incorporated U.S. groups have reportedly Nicaraguan refugees in Honduras and to the contras themselves...[The] driving forces behind the major groups are a small group of about a half a dozen men, most of whom have military or paramilitary experience...The contra auxiliary includes the World Anti-Communist League and it's U.S. Council for World Freedom, the American Security Council, Council for Inter-American Security and Western Goals [defunct spy group of John Birch Society] ...Among the other key groups in the auxiliary are the following:

The Florida-based Air Commandos Association, led by retired Brigadier General Harry "Heinie" Aderholt, is a group of approximately 1,600 past and present members of the U.S. Special Forces. Aderholt, Soldier of Fortune's unconventional warfare editor, coordinated the joint CIA-Pentagon-AID program to provide "humanitarian" relief to the Hmong secret army in Laos and served as chief of covert air operations in Singlaub's Special Operations Group...

Soldier of Fortune...was founded in 1975 by the Colorado-based Omega Group headed by retired Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, a veteran of the Phoenix program and special operations in Laos and ex-mercenary in white-ruled Rhodesia. Brown sports a T-shirt boasting, "I Was Killing When Killing Wasn't Cool." Soldier of Fortune (SOF) runs articles on counterinsurgency warfare, glamorizes training and combat missions by SOF personnel, advertises weapons and mercenary services and encourages donations to its affiliated El Salvador/Nicaragua Defense Fund, which printed and distributed some 500 copies of the CIA contra manual, and Refugee Relief International, which provides medical training and supplies to El Salvador and the contras. Refugee Relief is led by Thomas Reisinger, the assistant director of SOF for special projects; board members include Singlaub, Aderholt and SOF Military Affairs Editor Alexander McColl. (In March 1988, a Texas jury ordered Soldier of Fortune to pay $9.4 million in damages to the family of a woman killed by a hit man her husband had hired through a classified as in the magazine...) 

The CIA contra manual is mild compared to some of the murder and sabotage manuals SOF promotes, with such titles as How to Kill Vols. I-V, Hit Man ("Learn how a pro makes a living at this craft without landing behind bars"), Techniques of Harassment and Elementary Field Interrogation. The last manual includes explicit instructions for psychological and physical torture..." 

"Civilian Material Assistance...was founded in 1983 by Tom Posey, a former Marine Corporal, John Bircher and Ku Klux Klansman..."We like to think of ourselves as missionary-mercenaries," explained Posey..."

"The Virginia based National Defense Council was founded in 1978 by [CNP's] Andy Messing, a close friend of North's and a member of Singluab's Pentagon advisory panel, who has said "that going to war is his favorite pastime."..."

"Brigade 2506...the kind of freedom fighting the Brigade supports is evident in its choice of Chilean dictator Pinochet for its first Freedom Award in 1975..."

"The Virginia-based Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) was founded by the Reverend Pat Robertson [CNP]...In distributing aid to the contras and other Central America projects, CBN has worked with the Air Commandos, Refugee Relief International, World Medical Relief, Friends of the Americas, Knights of Malta and other groups."

"The Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM), known as the Knights of Malta, is an elite, international Vatican order..."  16  

Other groups listed include PRODEMCA, Citizens for America (founded by CNP's Lew" Lehrman with donors including Nelson Bunker Hunt  and Joseph Coors) and Moon's CAUSA and the Nicaraguan Freedom Fund, Friends of the Americas (founded by CNP's Woody Jenkins) and others.

Pat Robertson was a "management trainee" with W.R. Grace Corporation for two years. "...more than a century the Grace Empire controlled vast portions of Latin America, especially Peru...J. Peter Grace...spearheaded the post-World War II attacks on the U.S. labor movement and the creation of the American Institute fro Free Labor Development (AIFLD) to break progressive unions in the rest of the hemisphere. In the 1950's, when Robertson worked for the company, J. Peter Grace helped Otto Ambrose establish residency in the United States. Ambrose was a known Nazi chemist and director of the I.G. Farben Company which supplied gasoline and rubber for Hitler's war effort. Robertson has often praised J. Peter Grace and once remarked that Grace is the 'godfather' of his children." 17  

J. Peter Grace was involved in Project Paperclip -- "Project Paperclip was a postwar and Cold War operation carried out by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA)...Paperclip had two aims: to exploit German scientists for American research, and to deny these intellectual resources to the Soviet Union. At least 1,600 scientists and their dependents were recruited and brought to the United States by Paperclip and its successor projects through the early 1970s...April 27,1948 memo to the Pentagon's Director of Intelligence: "Security investigations conducted by the military have disclosed the fact that the majority of German scientists were members of either the Nazi Party or one or more of its affiliates." 18

Authorized by then President Truman, it evolved into a CIA arrangement to remove classified information (which labeled individuals as a threat)  from dossiers so that former SS members and Nazi scientists, professors and doctors were given new identities, and were secretly brought into the US and other countries. The American space program became a veritable haven of ex-Nazis (i.e. Werner Von Braun and others). These war criminals would find employment within government agencies and companies such as J. Peter Grace's W.R. Grace chemical company. 

Project Paperclip was only one of several government projects after World War II whereby Nazi scientists, some associated with Holocaust atrocities, were brought to the U.S. to work and live.  Other Nazis, like Klaus Barbie, "The Butcher of Lyon," were used by U.S. intelligence and helped to escape from Germany and later to avoid capture. 19 

From National Archives and Records Administration 20  Mark Weitzman, Remarks before the Nazi War Criminals Interagency Working Group (Simon Wiesenthal Center, Los Angeles, June 24, 1999) 

"...A recent report in a London newspaper described the story of Erhard Dabringhaus. Dabringhaus was an U.S. Army (CIC) intelligence officer in post-war Germany. During the years between 1946 and 1952 he helped recruit agents that served as a backbone of what would become the CIA. One prime area of recruitment was involved Nazis – even more specifically, SS men. Perhaps the most infamous of these men was Klaus Barbie, also known as "The Butcher of Lyon." He was responsible for the deportation of 7,500 people, participated in 4,342 murders and was involved in the arrest and torture of 14,311 resistance fighters....We know that our space program was aided in its development by Nazi scientists, recruited in Operation Paperclip, scientists who utilized slave labor in their work on the v-rockets and other programs. We know that Nazi murderers and Nazi collaborators were used and protected, and even sheltered here in the United States..."


"On January 16, 1980 ABC-TV broadcast a special "News Closeup," "Escape from Justice: Nazi War Criminals in America" which discussed Grace's Role in Project Paperclip.

The transcript of the program, available from ABC on request, states:

"Project Paperclip ....... from the end of WW II to the mid-1950's brought more than 900 German scientists to the United States. ..... Otto Ambros ..... was a chemist and a Director of the notorious I.G. Farben Company which supplied gasoline and rubber for Hitler's war effort. Ambros ...... played a supervisory role in the construction of Farben's plant in the Polish village of Auschwitz. For I.G. Farben, Auschwitz concentration inmates provided a plentiful source of cheap labor. ..... The Nuremberg prosecution charged that each day at Farhen's plant one hundred people died from sheer exhaustion. ...... Otto Ambros was convicted of slavery and mass murder and sentenced to eight years in prison. But even while on trial at Nuremberg, Ambros was a target for U.S. recruiters from 'Project Paperclip.' His prison sentence was commuted after only three years by American officials and he was helped in a bid to enter the United States by ...... J. Peter Grace, President of W. R. Grace, a major American chemical company. .....

An internal State Department document describes how J. Peter Grace helped Otto Ambros in his efforts to enter the U.S. In a memorandum to the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Grace acknowledges that Ambros was a war criminal. But he adds that in the years he's known Ambros, ...... 'we have developed a very deep admiration, not only for his ability, but more important, for his character in terms of truthfulness and integrity.'

Today Otto Ambros does consulting work for W. R. Grace and Company and lives here in Mannheim, Germany. In a recent telephone interview Ambros [said] 'I'm happy to still be working as a chemist ...... but it's funny. Now I'm helping the Americans.' " 

From NASA, "...In 1933 the new Nazi regime placed all rocket experimentation, including that being done by the rest of the VfR, under strict government control. ...Ultimately von Braun and about 125 other German rocket specialists reached this country under "Project Paperclip," carried out by the United States Army." 21   

"When it was at its height in drug experiments, operation MK-ULTRA was formed. This was the brainchild of Richard Helms who later came to be a CIA director. It was designed to defeat the "enemy" in its brain- washing techniques. MK-ULTRA had another arm involved in Chemical and Biological Warfare (CBW) known as MK-DELTA. The "doctors" who participated in these experiments used some of the same techniques as the Nazi "doctors". Those doctors who were not indicted in the Nuremberg trials were imported from Germany under the program called "Operation Paperclip." The Nazi doctors were a valuable source of information to the CIA since many of the U.S. techniques mimicked what had already been done by the Nazis. 22   Footnotes 1-22

Graham [d. 1995]- CNP Board of Governors 1982, member 1984, 1988, 1995; president and project director, Project High Frontier, which promotes use of U.S. space technology to counter Soviet military threat; 1973-1974, Graham served as Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and from 1974-1976 as Director of its military counterpart, the Defense Intelligence Agency; military advisor to Ronald Reagan in both the 1976 and 1980 Presidential campaigns.  In 1978, Graham became Co-Chairman of the Coalition for Peace through Strength.  In 1981, he founded and became Director of High Frontier. Thirty-year military career Graham saw active duty in Germany, Korea, and Vietnam.  Some key assignments included Estimator of Soviet and East European Affairs; the Office of the Chief of Staff of the Army; the Office of National Estimates of the Central Intelligence Agency, Chief of Current Intelligence and Estimates for the Military Assistance Command in Vietnam; and Director of Collections, and Director of Estimates of the Defense Intelligence Agency; received some of the highest decorations our nation bestows: the Distinguished Service Medal; the Distinguished Intelligence Medal; the Legion of Merit with two oak-leaf clusters; and in 1980 the National Armed Services Award presented by the Veterans of Foreign Wars;  

A book by General Graham entitled "The High Frontier," and the National Security Agency (NSA) funded "Project High Frontier." 23 "High Frontier is the nation's leading non-government authority on missile defense issues including missile defense, arms control, nuclear weapons, and strategic systems. Our historic 1982 report on national defense was adopted by President Reagan and launched in 1983 as the Strategic Defense Initiative otherwise known as "Star Wars." High Frontier was formed to examine the potential for defending America against ballistic missile attack. Through our publications, research, congressional testimony and nationwide network of volunteers and supporters, we provide a powerful voice that actively supports the deployment of an effective national defense against ballistic missiles."

CNP's Richard Shoff, owner of Lincoln Log Home is North Carolina, was a former Ku Klux Klan leader; Shoff is a financial supporter of High Frontier, which is also allied with the occult group headed by Elizabeth Clare Prophet called the Church Universal and Triumphant. Shoff also supports the Conservative Caucus which supports the apartheid regime in South Africa. Lincoln Log Home funded the film High Frontier, produced by the organization High Frontier. 

Former Senior Advisor to Daniel Graham's High Frontier is Gene Vosseler, Chairman of Citizens For a Strong America. Previously a Lutheran and Unitarian minister, Vosseler was ordained as a minister of the Church Universal and Triumphant (CUT) in 1985 where he serves on the Church board of Directors and as chairman of theology. CUT grew out of The Summit Lighthouse--an organization established by Mark L. Prophet in 1958 to publish the teachings of the Ascended Masters--into an international organization with about 240 centers in 35 countries. In 1988 Vosseler made a nation wide tour on behalf of High Frontier. 24  

A 1987 Summit University Forum hosted a number of of well-known experts on varying topics related to SDI, including CNP Board member Gen. Daniel O. Graham. The 1987 Annual Doctors for Disaster Preparadness (DDP) and American Civil Defense Association (TACDA) Seminar co-sponsored by High Frontier featured as speakers Daniel O. Graham, director of High Frontier, and H-bomb architect Dr. Edward Teller . Citizens For a Strong America  25

He was also a member of the American Freedom Coalition, 30  [See: Alan Gottlieb, Robert Grant] a conservative grassroots lobby linked to the Unification Church... Graham was vice chairman of the U.S. Council for World Freedom, and has been heavily involved with the Unification Church's political arm, CAUSA, USA...) Initial funding for the AFC came from the Unification Church of Rev. Sun Myung Moon and the Christian Voice and leadership positions in the AFC are filled by members of the Unification Church and Christian Voice.... 31  Footnotes 23-31

Robert Grant - CNP 1984-85; 1988; 1994, 1998, 1999. Founder/Chairman of the Board, Christian Voice, a political action group composed of largely Pentecostals, 32  which operates out of the Heritage Foundation ; President, American Christian Cause; Chairman of American Freedom Coalition; a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary.

Coalition for Religious Freedom [CRF] 34 : Started by Rep. George Hansen in 1984. CRF Executive committee members have included Tim LaHaye , Jerry Falwell, James Robison; Rex Humbard, D. James Kennedy, and Jimmy Swaggart.  "...According to CRF president Dan Sills, [CRF] has received at least $500,000 from Moon sources. A prominent CRF  spokesperson and executive committee member is Joseph Paige...Paige received $60,000 from the Unification Church for his school, which in turn gave Moon a much publicized honorary doctorate. Paige is also active in CAUSA." [1986] "the Moon organization opened an international front in its 'religious freedom" campaign. According to Moon's New York City Tribune , the World Council on Religious Liberty (WCRL) was founded in December 1986...The Chairman of WCRL is Joseph Paige, and its " Chairman of the North American Caucus is Don Sills. They have recruited Dr. Robert G. Muller, assistant Secretary general of the United Nations as chairman of the Council's International Advisory Committee. The Council's headquarters are in Raleigh, North Carolina, which is also home to Paige's Shaw Divinity School." 35.

George Otis was the honorary chairman of "Christians for Reagan", a Christian Voice political project. Hal Lindsey and Tim LaHaye have both been on the executive board. 36  For George Otis See: The Call DC Plus; The Fuller Evangelical Think Tank; Charisma With Latter Rain

"...[American Freedom Coalition] AFC President Robert Grant has said that he hoped to "recruit a broad base" from his contacts with CAUSA, a political arm of the Unification Church... Grant has said that he solicited Phillip Sanchez, president of CAUSA USA, and Bo Hi Pak, president of CAUSA Intl, for support for AFC. Sanchez and Pak agreed to help AFC by leaving time on CAUSA program agendas for AFC board members to describe the organization and seek new members. They also allowed AFC access to the names of participants in previous CAUSA conferences, and granted the services of one CAUSA staff member per state to do outreach to CAUSA "graduates" and encourage them to join AFC. The two CAUSA leaders also granted the services of several CAUSA members to help in the Washington D.C. office of the AFC... According to Grant, state AFC chapters are headed by the state directors of Christian Voice and the American Constitution Committee (ACC), a CAUSA project... Grant, founder and chairman of the evangelical lobby Christian Voice, said the AFC has about 65 CAUSA/ACC employees across the United States. Current and former members of the American Freedom Coalition have said that the majority of AFC administrative officers--including the executive director, administrative director, and publications editor--are members of the Unification Church and have been principals in CAUSA and ACC... In a December 1987 Knight-Ridder article, Grant said that CAUSA could veto AFC state board members..." 37 

"Christian Voice pioneered the use of 'moral report cards' to rate Congressional and presidential candidates on issues from abortion to sanctions against Rhodesia. The organization was started in California in 1976 under the name Citizens United. In August 1978, the group changed its name to American Christians United and in October 1978 to Christian Voice, Inc. The original Christian Voice directorate consisted of Rev. Robert Grant, a graduate of Rev. Steuart McBirnie's California Institute of Theology, Gary Jarmin, a long time right-wing lobbyist and former disciple of Rev. Sun Myung Moon, and Colonel Donor (Colonel is his first name, not a military title)...In 1988, an investigative news feature on CBS' 'West 57th" documented McBirnie's history of fraudulent financial dealings and featured elderly followers whom he has allegedly swindled by refusing to pay thousands of dollars of loans."

"In 1987, leaders of the Christian Right formed the American Freedom Coalition (AFC)...Robert Grant [was] an AFC founder and president of Christian Voice. With initial funding from the Unification Church, the AFC signified a merger between about 30 Christian Voice field organizers and the state representatives of Moon's American Constitution Committee. At the August 1987 kick-off rally for the American Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., Moon's top aide Bo Hi Pak praised the 'marriage' between Christian Voice and the American Constitution Committee and said it 'shows what a great sense of humor God has.'

"As with other Moonie-influenced New Right projects, the AFC was organized in such a way as to obscure Moonie domination. The original officers included Christian Voice President, Robert Grant, black civil rights leader Ralph Abernathy, Richard Viguerie, and Richard Ichord (D-MO) and Bob Wilson (R-CA). After their poor results in the 1986 Congressional elections, Christian Voice leaders, Colonel Doner, Robert Grant and Gary Jarmin had concluded that Christians alone could not steer the country rightward. To be politically effective, they argued, Christians would have to be 'unequally yoked' with non-believers and even enemies of Christianity...

"In May 1988, Grant was invited as the keynote speaker for the annual conference of the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations (ABN), which included many of the same anti-Semitic East European emigre groups recruited by (CNP's ) David Balsiger's RAMBO Coalition . With headquarters in Munich and chapters throughout Europe and the United States, the ABN is nostalgic for the days when the Nazis occupied Eastern Europe. Scott Anderson and John Lee Anderson, authors of Inside the League, describe the ABN as: 'the largest and most important umbrella for Nazi collaborators in the world...A prime criterion for membership appears to be fealty to the cause of National Socialism; ABN officers constitute a virtual Who's Who of those responsible for the massacre of millions of civilians in the bloodiest war in history.' Grant's public association with Nazi sympathizers drew no storm of criticism from fellow evangelicals." 38 

Colonel Doner, responding to reporters about Moonie financing of the Christian Right and AFC, stated " CAUSA [Moon's political arm] is an anticommunist organization. It's a funding source. CAUSA is anticommunist and personally I'm for anybody that's anticommunist. The Mormons are the same. I'm not going to lend credence to their organization, but networking, I'm happy to network with them." 39 

Colonel Doner is Director  of  Dennis Peacocke's Coalition on Revival (COR) which Jay Grimstead heads. Peacocke was a disciple of Bob Mumford and his shepherding movement. Colonel Doner  has also been on the executive of Peacocke's charismatic Anatole Fellowship, whose goal is to gain  influence in the Republican Party. Other executive committee members have included CNP's David Balsiger and Connie Marshner  , who represents Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation. 40 

Dennis Peacocke's Coalition on Revival (COR) was co-founded and headed by Jay Grimstead. Jay Grimstead's COR Manifesto is the document which outlines COR's goals and objectives. The 135 Christian activists who signed the document in 1986 committed themselves to working for the realization of COR's goals "until the day we die." Those on the COR steering committee include other CNP members as well as recognized shepherding movement leaders such as Bob Mumford and Ern Baxter, as well as Jack Van Impe.

Christian Voice, which claims to be the nation's largest conservative Christian lobby, secretly joined forces with the Unification Church [in August 1987], according to documents obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer. Together they mobilized grassroots conservative activists nationwide, hoping either to move the Republican Party rightward or build a new hard-right U.S. political party. Behind this large, well-heeled alliance, called the American Freedom Coalition, is conservative strategist and fund-raising genius [CNP's] Richard Viguerie, rescued from the brink of bankruptcy in October by Bo Hi Pak, a former Korean military-intelligence officer and Moon's top U.S. operative. Rev. Robert Grant, chairman of the coalition, initially denied, then confirmed links between his traditional Christians and the Moonies. A main source of the Moon money involved "hundreds of millions, Moon said in 1984" seems to be Japan. A national bar association panel there reported in July that a church - organized high-pressure sales scheme had bilked Japanese consumers out of at least $165 million since 1980, terming that sum only the "tip of the iceberg.'' 41 

Dr. Bo Hi Pak's 60th Birthday Celebration, Washington, D.C., August 26, 1990, "...Dr. Pak uses the occasion of his 60th birthday celebration to give his heartfelt thanks to several people in attendance, including Congressman Ichord, Dr. Bob Grant, Ambassador Sang Kook Han, Ambassador Phillip Sanchez and his wife, and Gary Jarmin...  42 

"Now I want to speak about Dr. Bob Grant. Dr. Grant's primary mission nowadays is not leading AFC. His primary mission is to speak to visiting Korean groups... The other day I joked with him, and I told him, the Korean public is waiting for you, Dr. Grant. ... They want you to come to Korea to run for the presidency. You have created a big constituency. There is a certain truth to it. Dr. Grant is becoming very popular among Korean intellectuals and leaders of Korea. But the more important thing is this: Dr. Grant never once complained or excused himself, never once. Speaking to these groups is an additional duty. He knows Reverend Moon wants him to do it, and that is good enough for him. He is giving his heart and soul, day in and day out, pouring out his message, teaching about America to these Korean people. No one is telling the truth about America like Reverend Bob Grant does. But he loves America. He is confident. He is a man of positive thinking. He is a man of love."

"Now when the regional directors come, you usually come to his home. His basement has become a conclave of our AFC regional directors. He loves to have our people come into his home and use it and occupy it. The other day I said, bless him who understands that the kingdom of God is the kingdom of use. He is using every bit of everything he has for the sake of goodness. Of course, Judy, his lovely bride (I know she is still a bride because I was at their wedding in Palm Springs, California), supports him completely."

"Bob Grant knows Reverend Moon loves him and expects him to accomplish great things. Reverend Moon knows he is a great leader and even wants him to become president of the United States. Dr. Grant said, no, no, I was born in Canada. Impossible. The Constitution does not allow me to run for the presidency. Reverend Moon simply said, let's change the Constitution. My only birthday plea to Dr. Bob Grant is this. I know Dr. Grant loves Jesus Christ. He is a tremendous man of God and man of Christ. But I want to tell him I used to think that way too. I was already a Christian for five years before I became a Unification Church member. I thought joining the Unification Church was in some way a betrayal of Jesus Christ. I am sure all those Jesus-loving ministers have that instinct."

"But in my life of Divine Principle over 30-some years, I have come to the realization that Jesus and Reverend Moon are one. Jesus in heaven is sweating and laboring to see to it that Reverend Moon's mission here on earth is successful. That is the way Jesus' mission shall be fulfilled. This most poignant realization came to me: Jesus and Reverend Moon are one. As much as Elijah and John the Baptist were one...." 43

International Ministries Fellowship 47   -- website called International Churches Network (ICN) 48 . International Ministries Fellowship is a founding member of the Coalition for International Community Ministries (CICM). Their Mission Mobilization Resources is partnered with such groups as Caleb Project which is part of Brigada's missions network. They promote the resources such as National Pastors' Prayer Network.  All are connected with Ralph Winter's U.S. Center of World Mission which is discussed in the article "Filling the Gaps With Fuller." See: Topicorgs

A branch of ICN is called ILS International (Information and Learning Systems), which is governed by a Board of Directors. "Each year ILS comes alongside one or more new agencies who become a participating partner on a major ILS project." ILS as a service organization that looks at complex problems and then works with an agency or agencies to think through how we can help solve this problem in a way that can will benefit not only the agency or agencies who are trying to solve this problem but do it in a way so that literally hundreds of other agencies can benefit around the world. 49  

"Example: In 1995 one of ILS's board members, Frank Kaleb Jansen... presented to ILS, ... a formal request to automate the production of People Profiles for the Adopt-A-People Clearinghouse (AAPC)... Frank was the executive director of the AAPC. A couple of months after ILS stated that it would take of this project with the AAPC as a participating partner Frank has a stroke... with the AAPC without a leader, and ILS's commitment to help automate the research side of the AAPC, ILS ended up running the entire Adopt-A-People Clearinghouse out of its new office in Colorado Springs for one year.  During this time ILS became thoroughly immersed with the structure, needs and culture of the global adopt-a-people movement.  

After handling an average of 5-10 requests per day, from people over the world, about country and people information, ILS realized that duplicating information the AAPC's 1,600 people profiles, filed in country binders was way to limited in scope and very time consuming.  As of result of analyzing some 2,000 phone and written requests during the first year (40/week x 50 weeks = 2,000/year) ILS started getting a pretty good picture of what the troops in the field wanted and what data was actually available in the 1,600 printed profiles in the binders. ILS then designed an integrated knowledgebase to automate the process of producing profiles for all the of countries and peoples of the world. In order to have both black and white color profiles we also needed to design country and region maps for each country of the world --over 800 new maps. 

Now, four years later, the AAPC has completely automated system that can instantaneously produce Country PROfiles for 236 countries and People PROfiles for over 13,000 peoples of the world.  These PROfiles can now be printed, faxed or sent (and soon viewed) via the internet within minutes of the request. During this next year ILS will turn this five years of research and development into a series of products and tools..."

Don't let this opportunity to be saved pass you by.

If you don't know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and would like some help understanding His gift of eternal salvation, please contact us. Saying a prayer won't save you. Prayer is merely expressing to God how you feel. Believing and repenting are just the beginning of walking with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
