Church holds blood drive in 175 coun­tries

The Philippine Star - - OBITUARIES -

The World Mis­sion So­ci­ety Church of God con­ducted a blood drive, “The 686th World­wide Blood Drive to Give Life through the Love of the Passover” in co­op­er­a­tion with the Lung Cen­ter of the Philip­pines and the Philip­pine Blood Cen­ter last March 16 at the main lobby of Lung Cen­ter.

This mass blood do­na­tion was par­tic­i­pated by more than 400 mem­bers of the church and gen­er­ated 236 pints, which made the event the most suc­cess­ful drive held in the hos­pi­tal.

The blood drive was held si­mul­ta­ne­ously in ma­jor cities in 175 coun­tries in­clud­ing South Korea, United States, UK, France, Mon­go­lia, Sin­ga­pore, Peru, Africa, and in many other coun­tries around the world.

In the Philip­pines, the Church of God held blood drives in Que­zon City, Baguio, Davao, Laoag, Cebu, and in many other cities and provinces.

This is a re­lay blood drive that is con­ducted in all 2,500 churches of the Church of God in 175 coun­tries all over the world.

Pas­tor Choi Jeong­maan, over­seer of the Church of God Philip­pines said, “We re­ceive the prom­ise of eter­nal life from God through His blood, in the same way, we re­ceive phys­i­cal life through blood. That’s why we con­tin­u­ally con­duct blood drives in or­der to share life and the love of God.”

The church aims to give a hand to neigh­bors who are suf­fer­ing from ill­nesses or dis­as­ters, pro­mote the value of one’s blood, and ben­e­fits in do­nat­ing blood.

The Church of God would like to in­form and in­vite peo­ple to cel­e­brate the Passover of the New Covenant – the feast of God, which means plagues pass over.
