Saturday, November 28: Online memorial Brother Andrew

‘A Sign from Above’. Under this heading we commemorated Brother Andrew during an online gathering on Saturday, November 28 through a YouTube live stream. This stream includes memories from Brother Andrew’s family, friends and acquaintances, together with film footage, music and prayers. We give a glimpse into his exceptional life as ‘errand boy of God’ and ‘Jesus bearer’. In addition, we look forward to how His message will continue.

Livestream: with International Sign Language Interpreters (IS)
Brother Andrew has worked throughout his life, especially for the Deaf, all over the world. That is why the livestream is hosted with International Sign Language Interpreters.
