THURSDAY, 6 OCTOBER – The recent Seminar on Mission in a Plural Society (DDMM) Phase 3 at the Main Lecture Hall 2, Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) received an overwhelming response with participation of nearly 80 from the public and staff of UMS itself.

Rapi Manji from SMKA Limauan; Haji Marsus Jabar from UiTM Sabah; Surahman Salam from SMK Benoni; Papar and speakers from Hidayah Centre Foundation; Tuan Haji Burhanuddin A.
