On Sunday 30 July 2023 Shepherd L Smith conducted the divine service in Valhalla Pretoria Congregation. The Bible word for the divine service was taken from Luke 15:8-9.
During the divine service, Shepherd J Slater was called upon to serve.
The Shepherd also bestowed the 40th wedding anniversary blessing on retired priest Christopher & sister Leonie Meintjies. The word JOY was used as an acronym J - Jesus first, O - for Others (Wife) and Y - for yourself.
The couple were encouraged to build their marriage around this message.
The congregation found joy and pleasure in the opportunity to greet the special couple after the service.
