With these words, District Apostle J Kriel opened his meeting for the retired Apostles and Bishops at 3 pm on Friday, 29 May 2020.

He mentioned how special it was to see all and to be connected virtually before the feast of Pentecost on Sunday 31 May 2020.

Before the commencement of the meeting, the Zoom session was abuzz with laughter and conversation as more and more joined the session. Here and there a tease and a comment about “lockdown looks” were also shared.

The District Apostle thanked all for their prayers and support. He used the meeting to share some information on the impacts of COVID-19 and to discuss the way forward as the lockdown restrictions are eased in South Africa.

The joyful gathering concluded with the District Apostle wishing all well for the Pentecost divine service.
