Tomorrow, October 29, my family along with brethren in the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) will plant trees in a mountain of Abuyog-Leyte. The area is near the Silago (Southern Leyte) – Abuyog (Leyte) highway. Participants of this particular activity are members of the church in the Iglesia Ni Cristo’s district of Leyte East, and it is part of the Iglesia Ni Cristo’s tree planting activities held in various places in the Philippines.
Just recently, the PIA reported the tree planting activities participated by the Iglesia Ni Cristo and in coordination with the local government of Bayog. It was held at Sitio Quibranza, Barangay Kahayagan of the town of Bayog. According to the report there were approximately 2,000 members of the church from the 62 local congregations in 26 municipalities of the province including some municipalities from Zamboanga Sibugay. There were 3,000 rubber seedlings that were planted during the activity in a six hectare portion of Bayog EcoPark.
