The retired District Evangelist Dave Petersen and his wife, Louisa Petersen, received their
40th Wedding Anniversary Blessing on Sunday 23 December 2018, in the presence of the congregation and their loved ones. A chance meeting at a petrol station blossomed into 40 years of love and adoration for each other, complemented by a special love for God and selfless serving in His work. District Evangelist Petersen quotes the words of the song, “Heaven must be missing an angel”, when describing his time with Louisa. The section priest of the couple, Priest Grant Dodgen, who bestowed the blessing, wished the couple well for the future.
