SDASA family and friends

Allow me to greet you in the most powerful name of our Lord and saviour and soon coming redeemer Jesus Christ Amen.

Let me first expressed our heartfelt gratitude to the out-going EXCO under the stewardship of President Melusi Mthethwa who have handed the baton over to us. It is very important to acknowledge and appreciate that from time to time, God chooses whom to use, yesterday it was your turn to lead his association today the responsibility is given to us, and tomorrow it will be someone else. Many a times as God’s children we turn to forget it all about God and His mission. Right on the onset we need to pause and take a bow for Bingham Tembe, Jonathan Mthombeni, Handsome Langeni and Tholakele Langeni, who when God made call to them to be His representatives in a place and environment foreign to them, they heeded the call. I don’t believe that the thought could have cross their minds in 1967, the level of influence SDASA would have in the life of her members, the church, society at large and the geographical spread it has reached. To them what was critical was to make a difference.
