Why GEM72?

Why GEM?

In the Bible, Matthew's Gospel (Chapter 5) tells us how Jesus, in his Sermon on the Mount, taught about lovingly Going Extra Miles for others.

Why 72?

In the Bible, this time in Luke's Gospel (Chapter 10) Jesus commissioned seventy two disciples to announce the good news that God's Kingdom is near by.

So, lovingly Going Extra Miles for others while knowing that God is very close by with unstoppable love and limitless hope

- that's what we believe can transform the world...
