These instructions were first presented at the International Leaders' Meeting at the World Mission Center on January 2, 1987. Dr. Bo Hi Pak read them aloud in Korean from Father's notebook, then gave a preliminary English translation. The instructions were later officially translated and sent to all regions.

The deep spiritual content of these instructions is not easy to express in English. They should be read not with an analytical mind but with an open, prayerful heart.
