The 449th Worldwide Blood Drive to Give Life Through the Love of the PassoverApril 19, 2015
Worldwide Blood Drive in Quezon City.
The 449th Worldwide Blood Drive was held last April 19, 2015 at the Lung Center of the Philippines to give love of the Passover. The members of the World Mission Society Church of God joined hands as they share the love of God through the Passover. This event was simultaneously conducted by all the members of the Church of God throughout the world.
“We resemble God”
The Worldwide Blood Drive was attended by 597 participants from different walks of life who had the burning enthusiasm to donate blood. Among the total attendees, 164 volunteers were qualified as donors. The members of the World Mission Society Church of God believe that we can resemble God, by selflessly giving blood to those in need. The lack of blood in our time is alarming as more people are in need of blood day by day. The event encouraged more people, most especially the young adults, to participate in volunteer activities that prioritize the welfare of our society. Everyone who participated was amazed as they realized in their hearts that the event held was not an ordinary Blood Drive.
The Love of God Given only Through the Passover
This event is truly the love of God given only through the Passover. Like Jesus Chist, the members shared their blood to other people. After the event, the Lung Center of the Philippines invited the World Mission Society Church of God to receive a Certificate of Appreciation for their exemplary work to extend help and to share the love of our God.
What is the Passover?
The 449th Worldwide Blood Drive was conducted to invite people to keep the second Passover on May 3, 2015. The Passover of the New Covenant is the greatest feast of God celebrated annually. The members of the Church of God keeps the Passover by eating the bread that symbolizes the flesh of Jesus and drinking the wine that represents the blood of Jesus. Through the Worldwide Blood Drive conducted, the Church of God shares the love of God who sacrificed his own flesh and blood for our salvation. By donating blood, we share in the sacrifice of our God who set an example of sacrificing Himself to help others.
