“I just want to take a very short moment to let you know that I am here today with my wife, Greta, to let you know we support the good work that is being done — to let the world know that Christianity must move with the times and there are exciting things that happen when we put our trust in God.

So I am here today with Thanksgiving to you, Dave, and your good support Laura. For all of you I am grateful. I am here to let you know let’s not be afraid of what the future holds. But continue to go boldly into that future that God has with us.

Representing your annual conference, I say thank you for your good and faithful Christianity in the name of Jesus.”
