There is memorandum for all schools in Central Luzon to organize a provincial office for TLP and there will be Global Peace Camp by division.

Hyun Jin Nim always think of ways to connect people's mind to God's heart. He had invested more than 10 years in order to find the best strategies to inspire the heart of top leaders in the community and lead them to fulfill God 's dream. He made plans and initiate cultural alignment that is why we work and think hard on how to reach and breakthrough in bringing great people to God's providence and create one family under God.
Wishing you all victory for 2013!
Happy new year everyone!
