On Friday 13 December 2019, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider visited Walvis Bay on the west coast of Namibia.
This was the Chief Apostle's first visit to the country of Namibia. The trip to this coastal town was not without its challenges which included flight delays and lost luggage.
The congregation comprised of members from local congregations in Namibia, and some travelled from as far as Botswana. Some members travelled for up to twenty hours by road to attend the divine service.
As a basis for the divine, the Chief Apostle used the Bible word Psalm 145, 17-18; "The Lord is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him."
Some of the spiritual points shared during the divine service included:
• Every divine service is part of our preparation for the return of Jesus.
• Man’s reward is the grace of God in all situations; this reward is for all mankind.
• With a heart filled with God’s righteousness, even unfavourable situations can be a blessing.
• We are elected to serve a predetermined purpose while we experience His love and grace.
The children’s choir, mixed choir and orchestra also contributed to the festive atmosphere of the divine service.
The District Apostle Helpers Misselo, (Angola) and Nsamba (Zambia) were called to serve.
Before the conclusion of the divine service, the Chief Apostle ordained District Elder Mukwati (Botswana) and District Evangelist Luhanga (Zambia) into the Apostle ministry. The new Apostle Mukwati will assist Apostle Liwakala in caring for the members in Botswana and the Zambezi Region of Namibia. The Apostle Luhanga was ordained for the DA Area Zambia.
The choir appropriately concluded the divine service with a boisterous rendition of “I believe in Christ”.
On Saturday, the Chief Apostle and his accompaniments travel to East London to be in attendance at a music concert in the city. The weekend of blessings concludes with a divine service that will be audio-visually transmitted to all congregations in the NAC-SA region on Sunday at 9 am.
