Setting the Stage
It was a very special Sunday for our brothers and sisters in IDA Bollaram: District Apostle Helper David Devaraj visited the congregation and was accompanied by Apostle Manohar and Bishop Devadas. The preparations started two days earlier: Knowing that the church building would not hold the crowd, a big tent was set up in the garden with a stage for the altar, a sound and speaker system and seating arrangements for the congregation. The congregation also put special effort in decorating the stage and altar with beautiful flowers for this event.
The mood for the service was set by the beautiful and energetic Hyderabad youth choir when they sang “Sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life”. It was a glorious and wonderful Divine Service that also resulted in the ordination of Jones Edward who was commissioned to be a priest.
