No one can keep winter away and stop spring from coming. Just as we cannot go against the providence of seasons, so is the prophecy of God as it will absolutely be fulfilled.
On April 25, 2016, the 66th Overseas Visiting Group, which mainly consisted of the members from North America and Europe, entered the Incheon International Airport. As it is prophesied in Isaiah 60, “Nations will come to the light of Jerusalem, flying like clouds, like doves to their nests,” a total of 210 members flew to Korea from 91 churches in 17 countries—U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, Netherlands, Greece, Russia, and so on. Most of them were gospel workers in their 20s or 30s and visited Korea for the first time. They joined the visiting group to have an audience with Mother they missed, and to ask Her for the Holy Spirit to fulfill the mission to preach to seven billion people in the world.
Mother gladly greeted them in six European languages they use, delivering Her love and welcome message. She told them to receive abundant blessings from Father and to share them with the members in their countries when they returned, and to lead many to the kingdom of heaven by delivering the new covenant to poor souls living without hope.
At the opening worship service held on the 26th, General Pastor Kim Joo-cheol preached, “If an egg is broken by its inner strength, life is born, but if it’s broken by outer pressure, it loses life. If you build up your inner strength to be undaunted by any circumstance or condition, the mission to preach to seven billion people will be fulfilled without fail.” At his special lecture the next day, he presented how to preach to seven billion people and its vision in detail. The overseas members who heard his presentation told their realization: “Chicks can break the eggs and come out of them because the hen broods without rest until they are hatched. Likewise, the source of power to preach to seven billion people is Mother.”

The 66th Visiting Group members focused on learning God’s word through Bible seminars. They also visited the church training institutes, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, N Seoul Tower, Pangyo Techno Valley, and Songdo International Business District to experience Korean nature, culture, and state of development. On worship days, they went to the New Jerusalem Pangyo Temple and the Nakseom Church in Incheon, where they looked around the Holy Land overlaid with the gospel work of the Spirit and the Bride, and shared the heavenly family love with Korean members who welcomed them fervently.
“Awake America! Awake Europe! Awake Russia! Awake the World!”
The day before they left Korea, they read their resolution aloud before Mother and shouted their slogan together for preaching to seven billion people. With the resolution to lead all mankind to the kingdom of heaven where there is only eternal happiness and no more parting, they consoled their sorrow of parting and said, “We’ve received great love that sinners don’t deserve and seen Mother’s sacrifice. We will love and take care of our brothers and sisters with Mother’s heart, and put much more effort into good deeds and preaching the gospel so that we can deliver the glad news, ‘We’ve finished preaching to seven billion people,’ to Mother quickly.” With this resolution, they boarded their planes.
