A warm traditional welcome by a praise singer and a singing congregation clearly indicated the anticipation of the congregation.

This excitement was justified by the fact that it was District Apostle Kriel’s first visit to the Eastern Cape. His visit started on 18 February with a regional meeting for the Apostles and Bishops of the area.

On Sunday 19 February, the congregations of Bereng Street, Nobuhle North and Khayamnandi gathered for the divine service. The Bible word Jeremiah 1:7 served as a basis for this special occasion.

Apostles Swartbooi and Mintoor were also called to assist in serving. After the divine service, the District Apostle took time to greet the congregation and many grabbed the opportunity to capture the moment on camera.
