Pasir Ris Cleanup Campaign 2012October 9, 2016
The Passover of the New Covenant, which Jesus established 2,000 years ago by shedding His precious blood on the cross and contains the promise of “disasters passing over”, was abolished at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325 by the authority of Roman Emperor Constantine. In this age, Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Second Coming Christ, restored the Passover of the New Covenant.
To deliver the grace and sacrifice of Christ at both His first and second coming, the World Mission Society Church of God have been carrying out worldwide environmental cleanup campaign simultaneously before the Passover.
On Mar 11, 2012, the World Mission Society Church of God Singapore (SGWMSCOG) carried out the 1290th Worldwide Environmental Cleanup Campaign for the Passover in Commemoration of the Sacred Birth of Christ Ahnsahnghong at Pasir Ris park.
Members of the SGWMSCOG participate in this cleanup to draw the public’s attention by raising awareness of environmental pollution and severity of global warming.
Passers-by nodded and waved as volunteers picked up plastic bottles, empty cans, styrofoam containers, and misplaced planks. From the barbeque pits to the shoreline, volunteers picked up litters with unity, and with a positive attitude they made the beach and park clean in 2 hours.
As the members cheerfully picked up the rubbish with bright smiles on their faces, members of the public gave nods of approval and some even stopped to thank the members for their efforts.
“I’m really glad that I was able to participate in this cleanup event. I was reluctant at first because I thought it would be tough. But after today, I realised that this effort and experience is so valuable that it can never be exchanged for anything,” said Ernest Wee, 22, a student at the University of Queensland and member of the SGWMSCOG.
At the end of the clean-up campaign, the members of the SGWMSCOG managed to collect 100 trash bags with rubbish.
