It was an especially blessed occasion on Sunday 20 January 2019, at the Durban North Congregation,

where the Bishop Lawrence Naidoo conducted a divine service. During the service two couples received anniversary blessings and one servant was placed into retirement.

Brother Nico Quinn and his wife Anita celebrated their golden wedding anniversary after reaching 50 years of marriage, while brother Bruce and sister Lucille Massen celebrated their silver wedding anniversary for reaching the milestone of 25 years of marriage. Both couples were given a special blessing by the Bishop.

In a separate act,  the Community Evangelist, Eddy Komar who had served in the ministry for 27 years was placed into retirement.

After the divine service, the congregation celebrated the occasion with fellowship.
