GITJ Margokerto is one of the first Mennonite churches in the Muria area. It has a strong standing in the community. 

Voiceover in French: 
"The dance of creation” 
Among all the planets of the universe, only one is capable of supporting life. Some call it the miracle planet. 
And almost 5 billion years ago, a gigantic asteroid crashed into the Earth, tilting it at an exact angle of 23° and a half to the sun. Accident or miracle? 
It was this providential tilt, this little helping hand from the universe that changed everything and created the seasons, climatic extremes, heat, cold and these magnificent landscapes. 
Ideal conditions for life on earth. 
And God saw that it was good.

The interpretation does not constitute a definitive record of proceedings. The simultaneous interpretation of Mennonite World Conference meetings and events facilitates communication among the participants in the meeting. It does not constitute an official record of proceedings. Where there is any difference between the simultaneous interpretation and the original speech (or the written translation of the speech), the original speech (or the written translation) takes precedence.
