AN EXCITING WEEK IN COSTA RICA!!

¡Hola! Greetings from your American CIG family here in Costa Rica!

This past week has been an eventful week for all of us! We experienced two cultural events, a 1-Day Divine Principle Workshop, witnessing and meetups with our guests, and a special event commemorating the inauguration of YSP in Costa Rica! We also had the pleasure of having Mama Concha, join us in our activities and help share some motherly love!

As American CIG missionaries, we were able to have some of our guests attend the Korean And Japanese culture events! Each of these guests had a great time, and our hope is that we will able to take steps to invest and strengthen their life of faith in the near future!

Saturday was an important day, as we commemorated the inauguration of Youth and Students for Peace (YSP) in Costa Rica! Our CARP Costa Rica President, Sr. Manho Woo, was inaugurated as president for YSP Costa Rica. we had several speakers including congressman and leaders of the CARP group here in Costa Rica. Afterwards each group of missionaries, Korean, Japanese, American and even the Costa Rican local CARP members had the chance to offer performances for all the attendees. At the end we all came together one last time as a united CARP Costa Rica group to offer a song and conclude the event. The audience joined in as their hearts were opened and people where moved to tears as we all sang "One Family Under God" and renewed our commitment to move towards creating a peaceful Costa Rica where we can all serve and love eachother centered on God.
