The congregations in the Apostle Swartbooi’s area celebrated Heritage Day, 24 September 2019, by doing something to take care of God’s creation in their own unique way.

Most of the brethren planted trees and had fellowship. The young people of Hopetown Congregation donated fifteen blankets to the Hopetown Community Health Centre, on behalf of the Kimberley Apostle Area, as a token of appreciation for the service that the health professionals provide. The young people and musicians also sang and played a few hymns to the enjoyment of the medical staff and patients. While the young people said their goodbyes, one of the nurses remarked that the group had made their day.

Earlier in the day, the group reached out to two elderly families and cleaned their homes and tidied the yards of these senior members.

Homevale congregation was embraced by the presence of Apostle Brian Swartbooi, where they received the message from the Apostle that God is the Creator of the creation and they must look after it.
