Helping Others in Need
Seventh-day Adventists believe God has called everyone to a life of service. In response to this call, Adventists around the world can be found distributing food and supplies in nations experiencing natural disasters, educating children living in refugee camps, and showing compassion to society's most vulnerable members.

Herewith the information and decisions that have been made regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that we all face.
The Mission Statement of the Northern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in South Africa is:
- Make Christlike disciples of people.
- Teach obedience to all that Jesus commanded.
- Equip them to proclaim the three angels’ messages in preparation for Jesus’ return.
What a privilege for every believer, not to only read this theoretical mission statement on paper, but also to live it out practically everyday. This is and remains the greatest witness in favour of God and his kingdom. I trust that this will be your unique experience as you tirelessly work in God’s vineyard.

During my studies at Helderberg in 2010, I had to fly back to Durban one weekend to attend EXCOM. I arranged with the lecturer that I will be one hour late on Monday for class as I booked the 6am flight back to Cape Town.
As I checked in at King Shaka Airport in Durban, it was announced that the flight to Cape Town is being delayed for half an hour, adding to my stress being late already for class. After checking in and going through security, I made my way to boarding Gate A6. As I had some time to kill, I browsed through the duty-free shops and later found a seat at Gate A6 waiting to board. People started to queue at the security check and I joined them.
I asked if anyone checked the weather for Cape Town but people just looked at me not responding to my question. Well, I thought, I will get the info once we are ready for take-off. We went through the security check and again the hostess asked for my boarding pass on entering the plane.
