I felt free to express clearly and kindly. In front of all my relatives I emphasized the importance of healthy marriage. I used the same motto as in Vienna “Peace Starts with Me”. I could testify freely and openly to the audience about my life with Andrea as a blessed couple of FFWPU, and about the happiness we found. Everyone could feel it.I mentioned 3 things:We are a family that stands together also in difficult situations.Our goal is world peaceOur strategy is unificationAfter explaining shortly about the Holy Wine/Nectar Andrea and I demonstrated the drinking of the Holy Wine as a couple. Then the audience imitated our example. The Holy Wine was served as juice.After the official, ceremonial part, the guests were treated to delicious Indonesian food.
