On Sunday 30 April 2017, the retired Priest and sister Erasmus, from Lilianton Congregation received their golden wedding anniversary blessing.

District Elder Basson dispensed the Lord's blessing on the golden couple. The rector, Shepherd J. Patience and Priest A Olivier also served along.

Both the retired Priest and sister Erasmus continue to be a true blessing and a living example to many. The congregants are very thankful to the Lord for blessing them with such wonderful gifts who serve as an impeccable inspiration.
