Tree Planting Voluntary work with ASEZ in Ropes Crossing, NSW

On National Tree Day, Sunday 30th July, World Mission Society Church of God held a tree planting campaign. More than 80 members from the World Mission Society Church of God gathered. Included among them were six international volunteers of ASEZ (Save the Earth A to Z). They are the Church of God University Student Volunteers who came from South Korea.

The event was held at Southern Drainage Reserve in Ropes Crossing. This reserve has been a long existing passage for wildlife, such as kangaroos, that frequently pass through the area. That is why continuous maintenance and planting of trees is vital for local species of animals to survive.

Digging, planting, and watering, in unity

After seeing a demonstration by a Blacktown Council officer, team of 3 or 4 members united for digging, planting, and watering. Children, too, were eager to help their moms and dads by bringing water buckets and seedlings. Through the united efforts of the members, the big empty space was soon covered with new plants. In only 3 hours, members achieved a great result. They, along with other volunteer groups, planted almost 2000 seedlings.

Yorel, who participated in the event, said “Many of us have not experienced this kind of activity before. But I’d say that our work was rather joyful and cheerful because all the members helped each other. Without unity, it would have taken much longer to plant 2000 seedlings.”

ASEZ team members gave thanks to God Elohim for them a precious opportunity to participate in tree planting in Sydney. They said, “The trees we planted today will grow to provide numerous benefits for our environment.”

Bringing God the Mother’s love through nature

Blacktown Council praised the Church of God who believed in Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Jerusalem Mother. They recognised their continuous efforts in the local area, by supporting the volunteers with tools, seedlings, and a water barrel.

Bushcare Officer of Blacktown Council, Katrina Brown, was deeply moved by members’ hard work. She said, “I’ve visited the Church of God before and I felt amazing love of Mother from church members. Today you brought that love into nature. You did an excellent job of helping our environment, both for now and for many years to come. I sincerely thank all of you!”
