In 2017, we have been running full strength towards the victory of Vision 2020. The Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center became one with the FFWPU International Headquarters, which represents each continent, and which is directly governed by True Parents. This connected the magnificent grace and blessing of Cheongpyeong Works to the world so that every training and event has in truth been conducted and officiated by the great grace of True Parents.
