Papakura, New Zealand
Thirty-one volunteers from MCGI New Zealand came together and took part in the Clean Up Drive held in the Papakura Town Centre by the Manukau Beautification Trust last September 8, 2018.
With this God given opportunity, the members spent their time and grabbed this opportunity to continue doing good by supporting community efforts. The members who volunteered diligently assisted in this event by cleaning up their assigned area.
The brethren were actively involved in picking up the rubbish, eliminating the weeds from the cement cracks, sweeping up any unwanted glass debris, and helped clean up the garden area.
As the brethren have learned, it is important for us to continue to strive to do good in every way possible, to whomever it may be. It is strongly encouraged by our leaders Brother Eli Soriano and Brother Daniel Razon to execute good deeds even to men outside the Church, as it says in Galatians 6:10; "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith." and in 1 Thessalonians 5:15; “See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.”
The efforts of the members were deeply appreciated by the team leaders and organizers of the Clean Up Drive, who stopped by and sincerely thanked the members for their participation in the community event.
On this day, we were able to support the advocacy of Brother Daniel Razon that, “Ang paggawa ng mabuti ay hindi magbubunga ng masama (Good deeds will bear no evil fruit).” To God be the glory!
