The anticipation and preparation culminated in a most blessed encounter with God through the first visit of District Apostle J Kriel in the Kimberley area.

On Sunday 30 April 2017, great excitement, expectation and joy filled the air and could be felt among the invited congregations which consisted of Kimberley Central, Colville and Pescodia Central.

The Bible word that served as basis for the divine service was taken from Romans 6: 5, ”For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection.” 

After the divine service the District Apostle offered to greet and some members took the opportunity to take photos with him. 

The blessed, unforgettable and joyous moments will linger in the hearts of God's people for many days to come.
