Mthatha Thanksgiving, 2013

The 2013 Mthatha Thanksgiving (properly known as the Eastern Cape Provincial Thanksgiving) is now behind us and brings the 2013 Thanksgiving Services to a close. But it was a Service with a difference. 

Held as usual in the Rotary Stadium, Ngangalizwe,  the start on Saturday afternoon was delayed due to the fact that this celebration had been preceded by a Regional Thanksgiving held in the sleepy Transkei country town of Elliott, some 150km away and many (well over 50) Apostles together with the Mother Apostles had attended there first. 

The Chief Apostle and President was in good form after we had been blessed by the various choirs from the Province and told the congregation that on Sunday, he would be dealing with the various Ministers who had left their Churches and joined TACC. 

In the evening we met at the Assemblies of God Hall for a Gala Dinner with presentation of the latest TACC Project's.  A promise that the new TACC Bank Card would be available early in 2014, difficulties relating to the manufacture of the card itself have finally been overcome, and the launch of the new TACC Burial Scheme with excellent benefits at reasonable cost and with even more benefits to come. Of course we were also entertained by the TACC Ntional Gospel Choir. The Chief Apostle told us that next year he would be spending more time visiting members beyond the borders of South Africa. There are many countries where visits are long overdue.  Services that he would have held locally will be conducted by the Apostles of The Presidency.

On Sunday we had a punctual start to the Service which was attended by many visitors from the  Government, both National and Provincial. Of course, because of the recent passing of Madiba, the most senior visitor, the Secretary General of the ANC, was given an opportunity to pay tribute to the former State President. 

After the guests had left, but before the Social Service,  the Chief Apostle called the 4 Ministers to the podium. After a few words, he then appointed them to be Overseers in TACC. They are Rev Ngqolwana, who had been ordained a Minister of the Methodist Church and after several years had joined the Anglican Church before coming to TACC, Rev Ndabambi, who had been a Dean in the Methodist Church, Rev Nama formerly of the Rema Church and Rev Ndumo. Overseer Ndabambi and Overseer Nama were given the opportunity to address the congregation. O/s Ndabambi aopologised for the fact that for so many years he had been misleading people with what he now knows to have been false teachings and O/s Nama caused the Stadium to erupt in song with almost the entire congregation leaving their seats and invading the pitch.

What a weekend,  our thanks to our Lord for Blessing us in this way.
