THE second leg of the 2018 One Day Assembly for Circuit 4B, for congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses from Newlands, Durban North, Phoenix East, Phoenix West, Phoenix Central, Foresthaven, Verulam, La Mercy and Umhlanga will be held at the Stanmore Civic Hall on Grove End Drive in Phoenix on Sunday, May 13.

The theme of the assembly, is based on the scripture found in the Bible, Galatians 6:9, which reads, “So let us not give up in doing what is fine, for in due time we will reap if we do not tire out”. Collen Mokgosi, overseer for Circuit 04 KZN said: “As Christians we desire to do what’s fine from God’s standpoint, but doing so is not always easy.

“This assembly will help us to ‘sow with a view to the spirit’ and avoid ‘sowing with a view to the flesh.’ The programme will stress the need for young and old to live by Bible principles. If we do so we can be confident that we will reap abundant blessings from Jehovah.”

A series of well prepared talks, experiences, interviews, demonstrations and symposiums will develop the theme and answer the following questions:

1.Why is it difficult to do what is fine? (1Pet.5:8, Rom.12:2, Rom.7:21-25)

2.What is sowing with a view to the flesh, and how can we avoid it? (Gal.6:8)

3.Toward whom should we work what is good? (Gal.6:10)
4. How can we sow with a view to the spirit?(Gal.6:8).
5.What will we reap if we do not tire out?(Gal.6:9)

The assembly programme will commence at 9.30 am. The morning programme will include the dedication and baptism talk at 11.30 am. The talk presented especially for such ones is a highlight of every assembly and convention.

Globally during 2017, more than 248 000 individuals of all ages and nationality symbolised their dedication to Jehovah by water baptism. Before a student can get baptised, he must cultivate faith based on accurate knowledge of God, His purpose, and His arrangement for salvation.

The afternoon programme will commence at 1.10 pm and conclude at 4.15 pm.

Entry is free and no collections are taken, all are welcome.
