The members of Pretoria City East and Mamelodi districts were served by District Apostle J Kriel on Sunday
25 February in the Eersterust Community Centre. He was accompanied by District Apostle Helper Mkhwanazi, Apostles Joubert, Mogane and Bishops Naude, James, Mdhluli, and Rudolph.
The Bible word which served as a platform for the divine service was taken from Mark 10: 49-50: “So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him: ‘Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you’. And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus”.
Bishop James was also called to serve.
During the divine service, the District Apostle bestowed the 25th wedding anniversary on Shepherd P Ackerman and his wife, Anneke.
Before closing the service, the Bishop Sandy Naude was placed into retirement at the age of 68. He served in the ministry for 28 years of which 8 years were in the Bishop ministry.
A blessed hour of joy was experienced by all.
