(22.08.2014) Waterloo. Northern Sri Lanka has been hit with a severe draught this year. Normally, Northern Sri Lankans have adequate water for living and farming irrigation, but the last few years have not seen normal rains. Lives were already shattered here in this region due to heavy losses during the civil war. Now as they try to regain normalcy in day to day life, the shortage of water presents an enormous setback.

The departed servant of God, who had served for many years as Church president of the District Church of Southern Germany, passed away unexpectedly on 29 July 2014 at the age of only 74. Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider, who conducted the funeral service, expressed that the news of the District Apostle’s sudden death had surprised and stunned him. The two had seen one another in a divine service only a few days before.

The exact date on which Evangelist Carl Klibbe arrived in Cape Town is not known, but on 21 October 1889 Apostle Niemeyer wrote from Australia to Apostle Menkhoff: “Brother Klibbe has just written to me from Africa.” So we can say that 125 years ago Evangelist Carl Klibbe set foot on African soil to spread the message of salvation as preached in the New Apostolic Church. This, in time, served as the springboard for the Church into the whole of Africa.
