Kuya Daniel Razon, known for his “Mr. Public Service” moniker, marked the celebration of his 33 years of service to God and fellowmen with a grand thanksgiving to God on Sunday at the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.
“We thank God endlessly, and we know there are many things we should thank God for, and you’re all part of what we’re thankful for to God,” Kuya Daniel expressed before hundreds of thousands congregants, many of which were from the provinces and abroad who joined the celebration via live streaming and satellite feed.
The broadcast journalist was also thankful for God’s deliverance for 33 years. “With God’s mercy, amidst many problems, difficulties and various plights we face in life, we’re able to continue,” he added.
The 32nd that Has Been
