Armed with their brooms, trash bags, and other cleaning materials, young Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) members in Hamamatsu, Kawasaki, Okinawa, Shinagawa and Yokota, along with all the other young members of the INC in Japan, worked in groups as they picked up litter and cleaned up the streets, parks and other public areas all over Japan.
The youth members, belonging to the BINHI organization (for INC members aged 12 to 17) in Hamamatsu Locale went to Shiomachi, a park near their house of worship service in Hamamatsu City. Binhi members in Shinagawa and Kawasaki Local joined hand-in-hand as they picked up pieces of garbage at a park in Kawasaki City. Yokota Binhi members cleaned the streets near their chapel, along Ushihama Station in Fussa City.
The clean-up drive was part of the Binhi organization’s Worldwide clean-up drive last April.
