From February 10 to April 8, BFM Representatives John and Helen Abelseth conducted a Matching Education Tour around the USA. John and Helen accomplished an astonishing feat of visiting ten communities across the country, covering 11,232 total miles in their camper van, educating families about the matching process, and listening to their stories. The local communities welcomed John and Helen with open arms and even treated them to local cuisine.
“It was a really good experience. John is a very good speaker; he is eloquent, heartfelt, sincere, sensitive, timely, and wise/experienced. I learned a lot from the information he presented, and especially the testimonies” shared one young Unificationist.
Highlights from the Tour
- Families in remote locations felt very connected and loved
- Sharing many of BFM’s resources for matching and family enrichment was empowering
- Listening to members’ experiences with the matching and Blessing was the most impactful interaction John and Helen had with members
