On Sunday 30 July 2017, District Apostle J Kriel conducted a divine service in the Stellenbosch area.

Invited were all the congregations of the Stellenbosch area which included Beverley Hills, Cloetesville, Elsenburg, Idas Valley, Jamestown, Johannesdal, Kayamandi, Kylemore, Lanquedoc, Meerlust, Rustenberg, Stellenbosch and Vlottenburg congregations. The MIS co-ordinators, who attended a meeting at Dennekraal on Saturday 29 July, were also invited to the divine service. The venue for the service was the Kruiskerk NG Church.
The Bible word for the divine service was taken from 1 Peter 5:6, “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.” The Apostle Arendse and Bishop Witten assisted in serving the congregation.

After a joyful and blessed divine service, the District Apostle addressed the MIS group with some uplifting and inspirational words, thanking them for the work they do in the background. Some photos were then taken with the District Apostle and thereafter the group said their goodbyes and departed for home.
