On Sunday, 24 March 2019, District Apostle J Kriel conducted a divine service in Heideveld for the congregations of Heideveld, Surrey Estate, Guguletu Central and Guguletu North.
The divine service was based on the Bible word from Isaiah 55:10-11, “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater. So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth: It shall not return to me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper [in the thing] for which I sent it.”
The message to those assembled was clear: God is true to His word.
Apostle T Nene also accompanied the District Apostle and was called upon to serve along.
A recurring highlight of the divine service was the children playing their recorders at the call-up. 80 children participated in playing the hymn, much to the satisfaction of family and ministers alike.
There was much happiness and deep spiritual joy after the divine service and many members took the opportunity to greet the District Apostle and Apostles. The District Apostle also took some photographs with members and all the ministers of the three congregations.
