Jannie and Laura Strydom met some 55 years ago and after a courtship of two years, they were married in the Brixton Congregation on the 4th of March 1967 by the late Evangelist Rutzen.

GOD answered their faithful prayers and after twenty years of marriage, their daughter Lauren was born. On Sunday, 12 March 2017, in the Mondeor Congregation, the District Elder Bourne dispensed the Lord's blessing on their 50th wedding anniversary and shared with them a special word from Proverbs 19:20-21. This word perfectly confirmed their motto in life, "without GOD, we are nothing!"
