Two weeks ago we were blessed to have Donate Life California on campus at Monterey Park for two days to spread awareness of organ and tissue donation and to get members of our church family to be donors. Some of the information was new to many and we had a great turnout of people who wanted to sign up as donors.
Joyce Wong, who was representing the booth at church with her partner John shared this message with the church:
Firstly, thank you so much for everyone in making the above organ, tissue and eye donation drives such a great success! I witnessed miracles and gained so much precious experiences from the above events. The volunteers and I were so amazed and impressed by the kindness of the church. Especially, you really brought smile to John’s face (in the above Facebook photo). John’s one of the volunteers and he’s a liver recipient. He also lost his job because of the sickness. But he’s so happy because everyone that he met was so friendly, kind and lovely in your Church.
I had many years volunteering for bone marrow drives and some organ donation drives. The success rate’s so high in your Church. Out of all the people that I was able to ask, 97% percentage of people would love to sign up to be a organ, tissue and eye donor on Sunday services. You taught the gospel so well that really transformed people’s lives. All the church members are so lovely and put God’s love into action.
