Ambassador Akiko lectured on ‘Guidelines for Creating Service for Peace Project.’ Ambassador Akiko explained the meaning of SFP saying; "Before we begin SFP activities we must know the heart of HJN who talks about SFP and the wishes of True Parents … SFP shows us the way to become filial sons and daughters to God and True Parents."
