The Words of the Jenkins Family from 2008
We encourage all families in America to consider GOP for their 12 - 13 year olds
April 27, 2008
GOP is still taking applicants for the 2008/2009 school year. This program is a great way for Blessed children to experience and education in the language, culture and heart of the Fatherland while receiving solid experiential grounding in our faith traditions. It gives our children the opportunity to live together for one year with the larger "family" of brothers and sisters from all over America and the world.
We highly recommend this program. The letter from Mrs. Alexa Ward posted below is on our Family Federation Website and has all application materials and additional information.
Please consider this program for your children who will be between 12 and 13 years of age, entering seventh or eighth grades, on September 1st, 2008.

Dear Parents of Prospective GOP Students,
Thank you for your interest in having your child attend the General Orientation Program (GOP) in Seoul, South Korea for the school year 2008 -- 2009. GOP is the name of the first year program of the Institute of Korean Studies for Foreign Students. The program consists of a dormitory called the World Student Garden of Brothers and Sisters, which is on the campus of the Sun Hwa School in Seoul. The classrooms used by the GOP program are located in the Sun Hwa School. The director of the Institute is Mr. Kim Jung Woo. The Western Program Director couple for the Western students is Abdoulaye and Sybil Wone.
This program gives Blessed children of Unification families the precious opportunity to spend at least one year in Korea. They live in a dormitory with other Western students, and share the facility with students from Japan. They are introduced to Korean language, grammar, and culture. They keep up with most of their Western subjects as well. They experience the heart of Koreans through the teachers and staff, as well as on exciting and fun school trips. They deepen their identity as Blessed children and make lifelong friendships. They experience Unification culture and traditions in the Fatherland and begin to develop their own life of faith.
Applications are now being accepted for the school year beginning in September 2008 for those Blessed children who will be between 12 and 13 years of age, entering seventh or eighth grades, on September 1st, 2008. You will find that the entire application process is online.
Please go to the section entitled Overview of the Application Process for an overview as well as for instructions for completing the application process. Please complete the application process by April 15, 2008. There is a $35.00 nonrefundable application fee in order to process your application. Please pay special attention to the section on Tuition for next year.
If you have any questions, please contact Alexa Ward by email, or you may leave a message for her at the WFWP, USA national office.
With warm regards,
Vice President, FFWPU, USA
