District Apostle J Kriel's highly anticipated visit to East London coincided with the final countdown of 2017.

The District Apostle's first visit as the Church Leader to Mdantsane congregation culminated in a blissful encounter with God. Invited to attend this blessed service was the entire district of East London.

The Bible word which served as a basis for the divine service was taken out of Deuteronomy 32:3-4, "For I proclaim the name of the Lord: ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He."

To add to the festivities, the District Apostle bestowed the 25th wedding anniversary blessing on Apostle Nene and his wife, Phumla.

At the conclusion of the divine service, the choir rendered the anthem "How Excellent". 

After the service the members had the opportunity to greet the couple on their special day.
