1985 - The construction challenge
Paiva Netto summons the Legionnaire Women of the Organization
In plain language, Paiva Netto asked: "How about helping to build the TGW?” And
During the "10th Legionnaire Women Congress” held by the Movement of Good Will in Belo Horizonte/MG (Brazil) on May 25, 1985, Paiva Netto challenged all of those who attended to help build the Temple of Good Will: "A promise made by our friend (Zarur) is our promise as well. He said that the LBV would give Brazil a temple in which people could really meet with one another on friendly grounds. To build such temple, our main tool will be the Accomplishing Faith, and this Faith the Legionnaires, especially the women, have in abundance..."

added good-humoredly: "Mind you, if you agree and then bail out, you’ll have to visit me in jail with some chocolate, as I’ll be signing all of the financial commitments!” (laughs). The human mass that crowded the place to the brim replied as one: "We will build it!”. "Therefore, I consider this Temple morally raised”, concluded the leader of the Legion of Good Will (LBV).
By the end of the Congress, broadcasted through an international network of 600 stations, at 6 p.m., Brazilians began to collaborate with the construction of the Temple of Good Will, this monument destined to Ecumenical Fraternity, which became a reality four years later, in 1989.
