Around 150 members from the World Mission Society Church of God participated in the clean-up campaign today on March 11th in Toluca, Mexico. According to the Church, the campaign was carried out simultaneously in 150 countries around the world to the purpose of protect environment and preparing the Passover scheduled on April 5th in 2012.
One-day clean-up campaign was carried out in Benito Juarez market and empty lot in Toluca. As a center base of Mexico City’s commercial operations, this place is where tons of garbage and organic wastes are accumulated with lots of people commuting to make a purchase every weekend.
By leading of missionary groups of Church of God who came from Korea, the home of this denomination, the volunteers made an effort to collect every waste they found in the site of around 2 hectare by forming a huge human chain.
In the same time zone when volunteers carried out the one-day clean-up campaign in Toluca, another members from the World Mission Society Church of God in other cities such as Veracruz, Tabasco, Chiaoas and Cancun also participated in the clean-up campaign in the rivers, beaches, and oceans. They contributed to the environment to its reversion before the state of the pollution.
Deacon Emmanuel Hernandez from Church of God in Mexico explained that the campaign is to prepare the upcoming Passover on April 5th in 2012, as a part of purifying and saving the earth. In addition, he said Passover is the day we should share the bread and the wine which represent the flesh and the blood of God by celebrating one of the God’s festivals that were kept among Jesus and His disciples.
