Newspaper: EL INFORMATIVO
On April 28, more than 250 members of the World Mission Society Church of God gathered in the streets with brooms in their hands to carry out a “Clean-up Campaign” for the Passover 2013. Starting from Zócalo Public Square, they cleaned up Avenue Indpendencia, Avenue M. Avila Camachoy and the district of Chapulapa. They collected 1.5 tons of trash through this campaign.
“Thank you for cooperating and supporting the City of Atlixco for last 3 years. If all people participate in clean-up campaigns like things you do, all problems which occur due to wastes will reduced,” said Carlos Gamez, Chief Manager of the Department of Environmental Affairs of Atlixco as a representative of the City.
Jose Cruz, Secretary of the Department of Environmental Affairs, expressed his gratitude, saying “I express my thanks to you on behalf Mayor. Public policies cannot be successful without citizen participation. You played an important role in protecting and preserving the environment.”
This activity became a good opportunity to increase environmental awareness of the citizens who marveled at the parade of the World Mission Society Church of God members who happily cleaned up the streets.
The clean-up campaign was held simultaneously by the members of the World Mission Society Church of God in 150 countries where 2,200 churches are located around the world. The campaign was prepared as one of the events to commemorate the grace and sacrifice of God the Father and God the Mother who came as the Spirit and the Bride to save mankind in this age (Revelation 22:17.)
The World Mission Society Church of God believes in God the Mother as well as God the Father by following the words of the prophecies of the Bible, and has been conducting various community services such as blood drives and natural disaster recovery activities. The Church of God practices the teachings of Heavenly Mother and shares “Love your neighbor” not only with words but with deeds, which brings warmth to people’s mind. It is the third clean-up campaign conducted by the World Mission Society Church of God in Atlixco.
