On 22 September 2019, District Apostle J Kriel served the greater Southern Free State District in Springfontein.

The divine service was held in the Williamsville Community Hall, to which the congregations of Springfontein, Gariepdam, Bethulie and Colesberg were invited.

The District Apostle was accompanied by Apostle G Mintoor and Bishop F Flores.

The Bible word used as the basis for the sermon was taken out of Genesis 4 verse 4, “Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering.”

The theme of the divine service was to show that we are thankful for God’s blessing. Our thanks is a sign of our praise, thanks and freedom to engage in fellowship.

The divine service was concluded with joyful singing by the choir and orchestra. Thereafter, the members enjoyed some fellowship before making their various ways home.
