Pastor Conrad Mbewe preached the evening general session on the subject of submission to God-ordained authority from 1 Peter 2:13 and beyond. The burning question is not about our leadership, but are we submitting to the leadership in our lives: in our homes, at the workplace and in our church.
The evening session concluded by recognizing the work of the Chaplains in the security forces.
