Cr David Eden addressed councillors, council workers, and community attendees. “I would like to thank the World Mission Society Church of God volunteers who are here tonight. Since 2015, you have removed an outstanding total of 872kg of rubbish. Indeed, this is a significant contribution to the endeavours of the Kingston City Council, to keep our beaches clean and safe.”

“I would also like to thank, on behalf of council, Heavenly Mother, who teaches all the volunteers to participate in the cleanup campaigns and to make the world a more sustainable place,” he added.

In front of many witnesses, the mayor presented a plaque of appreciation to the World Mission Society Church of God.

After that, Hilda Dursun from the WMSCOG responded with gratitude, saying, “Give thanks to God for allowing us to receive this plaque. Our church was established in 1964 by Christ Ahnsahnghong and we practise the teachings of Mother, through being good Samaritans. Thank you for recognising our efforts.”
