No fewer than 90 students graduated at the Mukhanyo campus on Saturday, 24 February, an all-time record. These students are now qualified to spread, proclaim and explain the gospel to thousands of people all over South Africa and beyond. Can there be a better way to serve, honour and please our Father in heaven?
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.
