Report on the Trip to Nabileque Holy Ground 11/04/2021


On November 3rd at around 4 or 5 AM, two others and I departed on a plane ride from Asuncion, Paraguay. Along the way, we stopped by Concepcion before arriving at Fuerte Olimpo. In total, the flight lasted around three hours and cost around $50 per person. It wasn’t costly, nor was it hard or complicated to travel this way.

Once we arrived in Fuerte Olimpo, we were brought to the church building there, the house that True Parents often stayed at whenever they were in the area. It was also the place where Father held many fishing workshops for National Messiahs from all over the world. In essence, the house was no doubt a precious historical site that held providential history in its walls. This was where the others and I were to stay for the couple days we were there.

On arrival, we immediately saw that it hadn’t been well maintained over the years, not to mention that the initial construction of the building itself wasn’t professional. Because of these factors, there were cracks along the walls, the yard was outgrown, and the boats that were there were stuck in place because of overgrowth.

Since we weren’t going to visit Nabileque right away, we had time to do what we could with cleaning the place up a little bit, such as cutting away overgrowth, weeding, etc.

Eventually, Peter Paulo came to meet us during our stay at Fuerte Olimpo, and he guided us to the Nabileque Holy Ground on November 4th.

Peter Paulo Alves Pinheiro

Peter Paulo Alves Pinheiro is a Brazilian brother who had served as a boat captain for True Father whenever he was in the Pantanal. He was also the main witness to the subjugation of Satan, the liberation of Lucifer, and the meeting between God, Father, and Lucifer in Room 14. True Father had told Peter Paulo to keep what he witnessed to himself until the right time came, and it wasn't until recently that Peter Paulo revealed his account of the liberation of Satan and what happened in Hotel Americano.

At the time, after Lucifer's subjugation, True Father had told Peter Paulo to never leave the Pantanal and to protect it.

At around 1:30 PM of November 4th, we departed Fuerte Olimpo and traveled the Paraguay River via a small motor boat, all the way to Nabileque, Brazil. Because the water levels were low, we weren’t able to boat our way right to Hotel Americano, but rather had to opt for disembarking onto land a few kilometers away from the actual Holy Ground.

From there we walked for around an hour to reach the hotel. Along the way, we were able to see a bit of what the Pantanal was. Though the water was low and took away a lot of the water meant to be found in wetlands, we were still able to see a lot of the Pantanal’s nature such as tall palm trees, plants growing to be as tall as an average man’s hip, colorful flowers, butterflies, and more.

There were also fish that would send ripples in the water, almost every one or two seconds, showing that even the waters were full of life. The nature that we saw in Nabileque could very well explain an aspect of True Parents’ fascination and love for the Pantanal here in South America, even a little bit.
