Seoul, South Korea. From February 5 to 7, 2024, Korea Independent Delegation held its First General Gathering to celebrate its achievements, reflect on its past and plan for its future. The members gathered to discuss their aspirations and seek divine guidance for their mission. The gathering also became the venue to honour two esteemed members of the Delegation: Frs.
