On Saturday 3 March 2018, District Apostle J Kriel conducted a meeting for all Rectors and District Rectors

from the area of Durban. After a blessed morning in the Lord’s house, happy and spiritually satisfied ministers started their final preparation for the divine service for the departed.

On Sunday 4 March 2018, District Apostle J Kriel conducted the divine service for the departed at Wentworth congregation in Durban.
Also invited to the divine service were members of Umbilo, Durban North, Pinetown and Durban Central congregations, along with the retired ministers and their wives.

The Bible word used for this special divine service was taken out of Mark 6:34; “And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things”.

For the attending congregations, this was a festive and joyful culmination of many months of preparation.
