Cote d’ Ivoire: Raising Our Future Leaders
Prepared by FFWPU Cote d’ Ivoire
African Region Chairman Rev. Bakary Camara after a two-day seminar on October 6 and 7, 2017 with 172 young people aged 16 and over, started the providence of the young missionaries. It is for young people to learn about the public mission for a period of 6 months to 1 year. The Chairman’s call was echoed by young people in the sense that 25 young people registered to take part in this new providence.
The aim is to train the young people, at first theoretically, with a 21-day seminar to give them all the basics for the success of the mission and then send them to the field in teams of 4, 3 or 2 people for the practical phase of the project. The mission consisted of 2 phases:
– The first from 20 November to 22 December 2017
– The second from January 31 to March 23, 2018
The main objective is to train the second and first generations in the public mission by strengthening their knowledge of the Divine Principle, developing their life of faith, and allowing them to experience public life to become leaders of tomorrow.
These young missionaries should concentrate on:
- Testify about True Parents
- holding weekend seminars
- holding 2-day seminars
- find participants for the 7-day seminar
- take care of young people
- involve in youth activities such as YSP
- And Heavenly Tribal Messiahship workshop/blessing
- Testimonial: 1003 people
- Weekend seminar: 410 people
- 2-day seminar: 40 people
- 7-day seminar in Abidjan: 56 people
- Young Providence: 115 people
- Launch of YSP: 2125 students

At the end of the event, before the closing ceremony, our Young Missionaries received each at the ceremony, A Certificate of Recognition, a True Parents Photo, True Father’s Autobiography and small gift (an envelope of 5,000 FCFA – $10).
