The church is in the middle of a two week stretch where they plan on cleaning more than 6,000 regions in 175 countries. The goal of the "Mother's Street" clean up movement is to promote health and happiness.

“When everything is messy and dirty we feel unhappy. But when we have a clean environment then we as a society also feel better,” said Carrie Song of the World Mission Society Church of God.

The church says they plan on covering a distance equivalent to the circumference of the earth.
