|On Saturday 6 September 2014, a new
Kwasizabantu branch was opened close to the Drakensberg mounstains in KwaZulu-Natal. The
hall is in a rural area of the Loskop vicinity, not very far from Escourt.
A tent was used for the very big crowd because the hall can only seat about

and also thanked the local authorities for donating land for the mission.

An airstrip has already been built and the mission plane was able
to land there on Saturday. (It takes only 30 minutes by plane compared to 2 hours by car,

The congregation, represented by Nomusa Hadebe, thanked the
builders, Michael Ngubane and Rev Stegen, for facilitating and building such a beautiful
church. (see photos below)
