“Let me congratulate the chief host of this special interdenominational thanks giving service our own governor who has demonstrated gratitude to God since this service began by dancing and singing and celebrating the faithfulness of God.” 

“I thank God for the chief host for putting this service together to acknowledge the divine intervention in this state.”
