Church holds blood drive in 175 countries
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.
