It had been exactly 1 225 days since the last visit of a District Apostle to the Katlehong congregation.

The moment of blessing finally arrived on Wednesday 22 January when District Apostle J Kriel served the Katlehong congregation. He was accompanied by Apostle S Mogane and the local Rectors of the region.

The Bible word used for this festive divine service was taken out of 2 Timothy 4, a portion of verse 18: "And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom…”

District Elder H Sizani and Community Evangelist T van Rooyen were called to serve along.

The beautiful moment soon came to an end, but the joy and blessings remained in the hearts of the members. The choir concluded the divine service with the hymn, “Thou Lord art goodness”.
