GS 2013 Article 74 – Reopening

The chairman reopened synod and the members sang Psalm 56:1, 4. It was noted that all members were present with the exception of Rev. Eikelboom who had to leave to conduct a funeral. Welcomed to the assembly was Dr. A.J. Pol, first alternate, who will be serving synod until the return of Rev. Eikelboom (the Lord willing). Rev. K. Swartz of the RPCNA was welcomed as an observer delegate, as he had recently arrived. Some house-keeping matters were mentioned.
