Memorial services will be held in Cape Town on Thursday (December 11) and Pretoria on Friday (December 12) for aid worker Werner Groenewald and his children, Jean-Pierre and Rode, who were murdered  by Taliban terrorists in Kabul, Afgahnistan, on November 29.

Groenewald’s medical doctor wife, Hannelie, who was at work during the terror attack at their home compound, arrived in South Africa yesterday and is staying with family in Pretoria. Family spokesman Teresa Conradie told Eye Witness News that Hannelie is being carried by people’s love and prayers.

The Cape Town memorial service will be held at the AGS/AFM Church at the corner of Vasco Boulevard and Frans Conradie, Vasco (entrance off Frans Conradie into Haarlem) at 3pm tomorrow.

The memorial service in Pretoria will be at 10am on Friday at the Moreletapark Dutch Reformed Church where Groenewald was previously a pastor.

    Hannelie, woorde kan so hol en leeg klink, maar hierdie boodskap is vol van God se liefde, wanneer ons jou wil bemoedig met die belofte dat God Sy kinders nooit, en onder geen omstandighede, alleen laat nie – mag Sy teenwoordigheid elke hartseeroomblik vir jou vul.
