    This is some great work that this group is doing. I’ve seen them in so many articles around the world for their efforts to make the world a cleaner and brighter place. I wouldn’t mind joining them and give a helping hand.

    When I read this article, I was so impress because of the good action deed that the World Mission Society Church of God did in the Manila Bay. As we know, in Manila Bay many people threw many garbage everyday and when you there the smell is not good or gracious. However, the members of the Church of God shows good example in our society. I think all people must also do these so that our world can be a good place to live. That’s why I want give thanks to the members of the Church of God for the efforts that they did even though it is small and despite of the bad weather when they did this. Even the mayor of Manila City came that’s why the Church of God is best and good church in the whole world.

    The government should be doing something about this. Good thing thought is that there are organizations like the World Mission Society Church of God doing their part in making a difference and sharing the love of God. To the members of this organization, keep doing what you are doing so that other churches and organizations will follow your footsteps. Truly you are God’s people, angels sent from Heaven above. I support your cause not only in Philippines but also worldwide

    it’s so amazing that the World Mission Society Church of God clean the Manila Bay.
    As you know it is very popular place here in Manila.
    But people didn’t take concern of this place,so they threw garbage without even thinking that it has a bad result in our environment.
    So i am really amaze about this religious group who conducted this campaign.
    They were concern to our environment not like other people.

    When I saw the news about the cleaning campaign that the World Mission Society Church of God had conducted I was so amaze about their deeds. Some Filipino know that the Manila Bay is as worse as ever because of the growing population. Many people throw their garbage in the not right place they just throw it in the sides or even in the Sea. That kind of people must act like what this religious group did. We all know what are our responsibilities in our environment so we must not practice bad deeds. Thanks to this church! I am looking forward to know more about this church. 🙂

    I am one of those Church of God World Mission Society member who participated in this clening campaign in Manila Bay.
    I am very happy that many people really appreciated this campaign and for that I give thanks to them. But, actually our church conducted this event for only one reason and that is “to glorify our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother”. We conducted this event to share the love of our God the Father and God the Mother.Because they taugth to us that we must set as an example to others by showing our good deeds.We really hope that we inspired many people to take good care of our environment in the whole world. Specially here in Manila,Philippines. Thanks to God the Father and God the Mother!……. 🙂

    Actually, most people knew about the situation in the Manila Bay, that people in the area always throwing garbages and trashes without knowing the importance of environment. As a citizen in the Philippines, The World Mission Society Church of God volunteered to clean the Manila Bay in the clean-up campaign to set a good example on how to be a responsible citizen in our environment with unity, love and sincere heart. As a member in the Church of God, we share the love of our Heavenly Mother, we believed that Heavenly Mother changes the world. Through the clean-up campaign, we resemble the love of Heavenly Mother. As a true Christian, God the Mother already existed alongside with God the Father from the beginning through the records in the bible. Thanks to our Heavenly Father & Mother for making the event possible. I hope that all people also receive the truth and receive God the Mother so that they can also receive true salvation. God bless us all. WE ♥ YOU!!!!

    On the day, I had talked with one of cleaning workers for manila bay. He said that it was the first time to see so clean manila baylike this. And he added that the cleaners from manila city have collected the garbage everyday but never been so clean like today. He looked so happy. Church of God members did a lot of work that the people are not willing to do. Their love and passion must be from true God not from man.

    Another great work done by the World Mission Society Church of God. Truly they deserved a big thanks! These people from the Church of God did not just spend their time restoring the beauty of Manila Bay, yet they want to show an initiative for the people of our country, and of other nation as well, to maintain the cleanliness of our environment. Aside from cleaning, the true objective of this campaign is to glorify our Heavenly Mother, the one who started these glorious deeds.
    For we’re all aliens of this world and so if we’re grateful having it, how much more gratefulness can we have when our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother bring us back to our true home……Indeed, If we’re true children of God we must obey our God’s word and show love and concern to all of his creation….Thanks to our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother!!… God bless us all!!
