As long as purpose of this workshop is “Increasing Regular Member through Heavenly Tribal Messiah Activity”, centering on Rev. Kajikuri Masatate, Secretary General of Asian Pacific Region, he emphasized the basic attitude and motivation for organizing this workshop and brain stormed for concrete method to fulfill this goal. For Heavenly Tribal Messiah, there is three stages as activity, to give holy wine and hold blessing ceremony to 430 couples as first stage, to let 430 couples to 40 days separation and 3 days ceremony as second stage, and to make 430 couples as regular member as third stage. In order to reach till three stage, we learned exact method through study case from each nation.
Asia Pacific Region already reached second stage, and as third stage already brought the victory as 12 tribe (3 tribes from Thailand, Philippines and Nepal, 2 tribes from Cambodia and 1 tribe from Malaysia). As next step for 2018, Dr. Yong has vision to make “Model Province” as each province bring the victory for 120 HTM (each tribe will bring around 1,000 membership, so as 120 HTM means 120,000 membership) and Asia Pacific Region will make 12 model provinces, so as 1.2 million membership. And not only Asian Pacific Region but also Africa Region determined to accomplish this goal. Increasing regular member means, we have to be financial self-reliance. Even outside society, professional lecturer earns a lot of money, we have to be financial independence as professional Heavenly Tribal Messiah.
Since before we didn’t have a data base system, Rev. Kajikuri showed the monitoring result from last year June up to now, gave the award for those nations fulfilled the goal to increasing 30% regular membership, tithing and worship attendance. Through this, regional office encourage not only those nations didn’t fulfilled increasing 30% but also for those nations fulfilled the increasing 30% would not satisfy only 30% increasing but determined to increasing 10 times membership up for 2018.
As study case for “Increasing Regular Membership through Heavenly Tribal Messiah”, Cambodia (VIP Education to HTM Activities), Thailand (To produce regular member from HTM area and their education system), Nepal (Model HTM Area and for that creation of environment and success HTM case’s testimony) and Philippines (Data base system for HTM and that education material and testimony for model HTM) gave the presentation. And after those presentation, in order for pioneer nations which didn’t fulfill HTM to success HTM, there was a time for question and answer and group discussion. Malaysia case study about the success case for the Home Group encourage the nation which is difficult to do the systematic HTM activity (such as Muslim nation or communist nation) gave the big encouragement for pioneer nations.
Prof. Young Hwan Gil, Education itinerary worker to Asian Pacific Region, presentation about the “Home Group and Leader School”, gave not only encouragement but also concrete method not only build up Heavenly Tribal Messiah but also the vision how to sustain Heavenly Tribal Messiah activities to settle down as our eternal True Parents’ Foundation.

This presentation gave new impression to the audience not only follow for the new technology global era through internet but also creation of environment through online witnessing and visualized Divine Principle lecture. “One Family Under Wifi” became one of our fashionable words for our participants of “Asian Pacific and African HJ Leaders’ Workshop”.
What it makes special for this workshop was the Dr. Chung Sik Yong’s internal guidance as “Morning Devotion Hoon Dok Hae”. “Four Great Legacies in Age of Cheon Il Guk”(1. Tithing, 2. Worship, 3. Life of Attendance, 4. Life of Trinity), “Gratitude Changes My Lfie” and “Roadmap for Building Cheon Il Guk”. Through these internal guidance, participants as a leader recognized leaders need to be a model, and put into practice for nation building to Cheon Il Guk and planted the clear vision for Restoration of Kingship. “Morning Devotion Hoon Dok Hae” was really good opportunity for participants to go back to the original point of life of faith.
