VViva Argentina … the Chief Apostle is coming. Next weekend, from 16 to 20 March, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider is expected to visit Buenos Aires. He is accompanied by District Apostle Leonard Kolb (USA), John L. Kriel (South Africa), Raúl Eduardo Montes de Oca (Brazil), as well as the hosting District Apostle Enrique Eduardo Minio.

On Saturday, 17 March, the Apostles are invited to a concert. On Sunday the Chief Apostle will celebrate a divine service in a central church in Buenos Aires, which will be transmitted across the country. The Chief Apostle is planning to celebrate a second service on Monday afternoon in Rosario in the province of Santa Fe.
The brothers and sisters in Argentina are really excited.
Palm Sunday service under palms
District Apostle Michael Ehrich from Germany will be celebrating the Palm Sunday service in Nigeria. He will be conducting a divine service in Benin-City in the southern part of the country and in Badagry in the west. The two cities are known around the world for their many oil palms, which are used for palm oil production. What could be more natural than to conduct the Palm Sunday service under palm trees.
The members are excited about the special visitor from Germany.
A new Apostle on Easter
The New Apostolic Church in the United Kingdom & Ireland will soon have its own local Apostle. For the congregations in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland this is the best news of the year. District Evangelist David Heynes (52) from Camberley in England has been designated to receive the Apostle ministry. He has many years of experience as a minister, District Apostle Rüdiger Krause wrote to the congregations in the UK. “Having an Apostle based in the United Kingdom and Ireland will make it possible to provide much more intensive support for the ministers and congregations than has been possible up to now for the Apostles based in Germany.”
The divine service with Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider will take place on 1 April 2018 in Nottingham. There is a great deal of anticipation.
