The long-awaited journey of District Apostle J Kriel’s visit to Ermelo District started from as early as 6:00 am.
This 502km return trip needed five hours and twenty-two minutes on the road.
The Bible word for the divine service which was conducted on 19 May 2019, was taken out of Luke 24:32 and portion of verse 33, “And they said to one another, ‘Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?’ So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem…”
The sermon complemented the points of Chief Apostle’s transmission service, which took place on 12 May. The District Apostle also urged the congregation to allow the joy of doing the Lord's work to continue to burn in their hearts.
Apostle S Mogane, who accompanied the District Apostle, was also called to serve along.
After the divine service, the District Rectors and their wives enjoyed a fellowship with the District Apostle.
