Friday night many in the congregation of Hochlands could not sleep as they waited for Saturday 18 July 2015, Madiba Day, for a wonderful opportunity to fulfil the wish of our Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider, to reach out with love to our neighbours, the community.

In freezing cold weather many needy children and adults gathered around the warm pots of soups. Not even the freezing cold could prevent them from smiling. They took the soup with both their hands as a sign of thankfulness. The gesture made us very humble and we realised that we should be obedient to the Chief Apostle’s call and therefore please God our Father. Yet again the words still echo in our congregation, "Love your neighbour as you would love yourself.”
