On June 24, 2018, at 8:00 am local time, faithful brothers and sisters in the Accra Apostle region joined heart and soul with members around the world to celebrate the service with Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider. The service in Passau (Germany) was broadcast live and seen by thousands of members from all the churches of our District Apostle's workspace. In addition, District Apostles and other Apostles from all over the world were invited.
The service based on the text word Matthew 5:44-45, began with an opening hymn reflecting on the forthcoming service for the departed and also in preparing our minds and hearts for the blessings of our Heavenly Father.
The Chief Apostle expressed his heartfelt joy to be in the midst of brothers and sisters on such a special day. His main focus was on loving one another as Christ loved us. He advised that members should not pay evil for evil but rather love their enemies and remain steadfast until Christ’s return.
The service was supported by the District Apostle Michael Ehrich, Apostle Lazarev, Apostle Loy and Bishop Hepp present.
