From as early as 07:30 on Wednesday morning 14 December the invited guests to this historic visit of the Chief Apostle to Cape Town started arriving.
From then on the terminal building at regular intervals released dignitaries to this event, some of whom had travelled from far afield.
And then – in the closing hours of the day flight AF864 touched down and the Chief Apostle disembarked onto African soil. There were many smiles and a sense of relief when he arrived in the terminal building. After a friendly greeting to those who had assembled to meet him, he was whisked away to go and have some much needed rest.
And now the scene is set for blessed moments to be shared with the Chief Apostle and those accompanying him.
