Maintaining that celebrating 50 years is an incredible milestone of unwavering faith and commitment, he stated the celebration is a testament of unity and encouraged the members to continue striving towards making positive impact.

“Today, we stand in awe of the legacy forged by our collective dedication throughout the years. Our shared values have fortified us leading to countless moments of growth, compassion and support,” Paiwang said.
