On Sunday 8 January 2023, District Apostle J Kriel, accompanied by the Apostle J Joubert, conducted a divine service in Evander, Mpumalanga for the districts of Lekwa and Highveld Central which form part of the Gauteng-Mpumalanga Apostle Area.
The Bible word used as a basis for the divine service was taken from Matthew 2:2, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
The District Apostle drew the congregation’s attention to the reason for celebrating Epiphany was the appearing of the Saviour. He encouraged all to still celebrate Christmas and to ask ourselves if the miracle works within us, whether Jesus is active within us.
The Apostle Joubert was also called to serve along.
As part of the music revival, several instrumentalists from the greater Apostle area joined the recorder ensemble of the two districts to form the orchestra for this divine service.
