The ceremony took place amid much rejoicing, happiness and thankfulness. The key note address was by Rev Celumusa Zulu who emphasised that the greatest challenge the church has always faced and still faces today, is deviating from the truth of the gospel. Therefore: don’t quarrel about words and irrelevant arguments which does no good. It also ruins the hearers (1 Timothy 2:14). But proclaim the true Christ. And the only way to do this, is through the correct knowledge of the Word of God. So continue to study the gospel!
The principal, Dr Brian DeVries, promised the graduates that Mukhanyo will continue to pray for them, as Mukhanyo has done through the years of their study.
The chairman of the Mukhanyo’s board, Dr Lusani Netshitomboni, thanked everybvody who assisted the graduates through their studies: lecturers, parents, family, etc. Graduates must remember that they live in a society full of problems. While most people are only interested in serving themselves, graduates must remember that the most important thing in life is to serve – not themselves, but God and the society.
After the graduation ceremony, there congratulations all round. Pictures were taken and lunch was served.
- “ . . . so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose and shall succeed in the thing for which I send it (Isaiah 55:11). God’s Word and only His Word bears fruit and yields (Matthews 13:23, Hebrews 4:12).
