Apostle M Diedricks visited Voorbrug Congregation on 27 January 2019.
To the divine service Roosendaal 1 and Roosendaal 2 congregations were invited. The air was filled with excitement as the members entered the hall.
For this divine service the Apostle used a Bible word out of Colossians 3:16 - “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
During the divine service 49 souls received the Gift of the Holy Spirit through the laying of hands by the Apostle. After Holy Communion one priest was ordained for Voorbrug Congregation.
Before the conclusion of the divine service two ministers were placed into well-deserved retirement; Community Evangelist Aubrey van der Westhuizen from Roosendaal 1 Congregation and Priest Cornelius Adriaans from Voorbrug Congregation. Between the two ministers they shared 60 years in the ministry.
After the divine service Shepherd Don resumed his responsibility as Rector of Voorbrug. The Apostle took photos with the retired ministers and their families. He also conducted a meeting with the Young People leaving for the Youth Convention.
