On  Sunday 12 March 2017  Bishop E.S. Bhana bestowed the Ruby Wedding Anniversary Blessing on Priest Clive Brown and his wife Beryl in Kimberley Central Congregation.

The couple  was  given  a  special  Bible Word  for  this  occasion  found  in  Joshua 24, a portion of verse 15.  The word speaks of the serving of the Lord,  “‘But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.’” (NKJV)

Moments of reflections on their lives together took centre stage and here indeed it could be emphasized that the couple is a living testimony that with God’s help it is indeed possible to remain faithful to each other under all circumstances.

Their union is blessed with three children, nine grandchildren and an energetic great-grandchild. Through all circumstances in their lives the driving force for them has been: Trust in the Lord and prayers.
