What makes you want to join LCE?

I honestly in my own right wouldn’t want to join any group or participate in any movement that doesn’t align with values for building a new earth that’s free from petty prejudice and recycled corruption.After carefully examining and reviewing LCE’s mission and manifesto, I found in myself an extending perspective that connects my life as a divine ministry to each and everyone I saw listed on the Co-founder list.I believe my presence here is not just by chance and it’s one of those reasons I’m willing to stay to find out WHY ? Knowing the ALL-Creator doesn’t put me in places where the Glory of HIM is not revealed, I’m patient to find out if LCE will make way for the will of the new Earth.
