Receive warm greetings in the name of the trinity; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
2016 has been quiet a hectic year. It came with a lot of challenges that needed us as both students and Christians in the Anglican Church to stand up and be vocal about a lot of things. As conquerors in the Lord, here we are in 2017, still standing strong with no doubt that God has gone before us and cleared the paths of 2017.
We remember the soldiers in Christ that we lost last year; Thabiso Rafutho and Lungile Williams. May their souls continue resting in peace. Their contributions in the Church made a difference, however, God needed them more than we did and we believe they are at a better place.
We continue to pray for Bonginkosi Khanyile who is still in jail as a result of the #Feesmustfall protest and we deeply commend his bravery to stand firm in what he believes in. Not forgetting every single student and priest who took part in this movement, to create peace and a safe protest. May we continue praying for God’s intervention in this matter and for His grace and mercy that is sufficient for all of us.
To the fresh additions to our organisation, may God bless you on the new journey that you have just embarked on. May you feel the warmth and love that Anglican Students’ Societies bring, in your respective regions. This is an exciting journey and you have a ‘home away from home’ behind you, cheering you on to greater heights.
The Provincial Executive Committee would like to wish everyone a blessed and fulfilling 2017. Greater opportunities await us in this New Year. 2016 was a year where we waited on the Lord but now He has renewed our strengths so we can soar high like Eagles, no matter what may come our way. This is the year of greatness, take charge.
Yours In Christ
