On Sunday 24 December 2017, Valhalla Congregation in Pretoria East District experienced

a double blessing. Firstly, Apostle JM Joubert gave the congregation a surprise visit, however, this was not all that awaited the congregation. Priest Noble Scheepers and his wife Jenny also received their 40th wedding anniversary blessing.

The Apostle was on holiday with his family in Bela Bela, and not only came to Valhalla to bestow the blessing, but also bought red roses for the couple. It was a surprise visit that no one expected, not even the couple. It was a joyous day and served as preparation for Christmas.
