The District Apostle was accompanied by the Apostles H Swartbooi and J Cronjé, Bishops I Adams and J Cook, as well as District Rectors of the Swellendam Bishop Area.The Bible word which was used as a foundation for the divine service was taken from Philippians 1:12 “But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel.” Apostles Swartbooi and Cronjé were called to serve along.The choir concluded the divine service with a majestic rendition of the hymn “Thanks and Praise”.
