It was the year 2000 when the Church of God started to receive overseas visiting members in earnest. Up to the 73rd group, about 1,500 members had been visiting Korea every year. For the members of over 7,000 Churches of God in 175 countries, Korea is the country where God the Father and God the Mother, who are testified in the Bible, have appeared. So their visit to Korea is a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and a great blessing. Although foreigners’ visits to Korea decreased due to the outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in 2015, about 240 members from 23 countries visited Korea and over 2,000 members came to Korea in 2016 alone.From THE KOREA TIMES news article

And also the overseas visiting members of the Church of God shared “a message of hope for the New Year” being united with the love of Mother.
“I’m deeply moved that our Church members from all over the world with different languages and cultures are united in Mother’s love. If you don’t care about other people and only think of yourself, you miss something important ― love. Among many types of love, a mother’s love is the one that can change people, and those who are changed through it can make the world beautiful,” said Michael Miller from New York, U.S.From THE KOREA TIMES news article
