Sharing the love of Christ and spreading the news of the sacred birth of Christ Ahnsahnghong through blood donation

[Asian Voice Weekly (Australia) / January 19, 2012]

Blood donation is a valuable act of human kindness in saving lives. The members of the World Mission Society Church of God (Chief Pastor: Joocheol Kim) plans to carry out a blood drive to save lives of people in jeopardy due to the shortage of blood supply.

This Church said that around 60 saints of the Church of God in Melbourne, located in Pascoe Vale, would visit the Southbank Blood Donation Centre Melbourne to donate blood on Australia Day on Friday January 26.

The Church of God planed specially this blood donation campaign for “celebrating the sacred birth of Christ Ahnsahnghong who came a second time to save mankind.”

The missionary of the Church of God explained the purpose of the event, saying, “We planned this voluntary blood donation event to save lives of people dying due to lack of blood supply and to help alleviate the shortage of blood supply in Australia.” He also added, “The Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong came to this earth to preach the Passover of the New Covenant that gives eternal life to mankind. We also hope that people will hear the good news that God came to the earth through this blood drive.”

According to a statistics survey, one of three Australian during their lifetime needs a blood transfusion. However, only one of thirty people donates blood. Only three per cent of the entire population participates in the blood donation every year.

This group blood donation campaign of the Church God will help change the consciousness of people who have negative perception and significantly contribute to the change of consciousness towards blood donation and the expansion of the donor base. Mostly especially, it is expected to help eliminate the burning problem of blood shortages and save lives of emergency patients who require much blood.

“I have never participated in blood donation before and at first, I was nervous. However, now I look forward to it since it will contribute to saving a valuable life of someone.” said Mignonne Malan (25) from the Church of God showing excitement regarding the blood donation. And she added, “I’m proud of spreading the love of God the Father Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother New Jerusalem.” She said she would certainly participate in the blood drive on the 26th day of this month.

The World Mission Society Church of God also held a blood drive at NSW Red Cross Blood Donor Center in Sydney on January 6. About 30 members of the Church of God participated in that event. One day before, on the 5th day of this month, their activities were on-air via the channel “Radio 2000. 98.5FM.”

The World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG)originated from South Korea in the east from the ends of the earth and spread to the whole world. Based on the Bible, the members of this Church believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong as the Second Coming Jesus, who restored the New Covenant truths that had been destroyed during the Dark Ages including the Sabbath day and the seven feasts of three times such as the Passover. They also believe in God the Mother who is the source of life and love.

On December 25, 2011 (the 1st day of the 12th month in the lunar calendar), they held a service for commemorating the 94th anniversary of the sacred birth of Christ Ahnsahnghong and have been carrying out environmental cleanup campaigns and sharing and voluntary services simultaneously around the world before and after that day. The Headquarters is located in South Korea. The Church of God has 2,200 Churches in 150 countries and the number of the registered members amounts to around 1.63 million.
