On Sunday 19 January 2020, District Apostle J Kriel served the members of Mamre and Robinvale in Robinvale congregation.
He was accompanied by Apostle P Thompson, Bishops V Fisher and G Kotze as well as the District Rectors, Rectors and their helpers from Atlantis and the West Coast Districts.
The Bible word which served as a platform for this divine service was taken out of Romans 8:15. “For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’” The hymn rendered by the choir, "In Godly love abiding", served as a beautiful introduction to the sermon. The District Apostle further elaborated that we should not obey the will of God out of fear of being punished, but rather because we love Him, and we should continue to do good works and love our neighbour as ourselves.
Apostle P Thompson and District Elder M Maharage were called to assist in serving.
After the divine service, the District Apostle took time to greet the congregation and took some photos with the ministers, confirmands and members. Much joy was experienced after the divine service as everyone left the house of God, excited for the future of God’s work.
