Some participants at the Thanksgiving service

The Presiding Bishop of Action Chapel International (ACI), Bishop James K. Saah, has stated thanksgiving has the capacity to change any situation.

He said this could be liken to yeast on bread dough which increases the dough, adding that “thanksgiving also increases the blessing of the thanks giver.”

Bishop Saah said this during the climax the week-long Annual Thanksgiving Service 2021 of Jospong Group of Companies (JGC) and Zoomlion on Friday.

He admonished Ghanaians to be careful not to hold back thanksgiving due to God and explained that it is a formal public expression of thanks to God.

Quoting from Genesis 8:22 to buttress his point, he said “thanksgiving operates by the law of sowing and reaping.”

“If you sow thanksgiving, God gives you something back, adding that “thanksgiving is in words and deeds

“There is no increase when thanksgiving is brushed aside,” he advised.

According to the man of God, people who walk in thanksgiving have increased immunity against diseases, saying that “thanksgiving can bring the dead to life.”

The Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources (MSWR), Mrs Cecilia Abena Dapaah, who represented Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, said Jospong Group of Companies was being led by an “indefatigable humble and God-fearing person,” a reason the group has instituted an annual thanksgiving service.

“Dr Siaw Agyepong and his executives have found the key and the key is praise and worship,” she added.

“So the secret and the success of Jospong is that they worship God. The annual thanksgiving is of great importance and I see it as a spiritual renewal to the group”, Mrs Dapaah stressed.

She said the company wants to celebrate their gratefulness to God openly so this corporate thanksgiving should be preserved forever.

Jospong Group of Companies/Zoomlion which has become a household name started from a humble beginning, she indicated.

Mrs Dapaah noted that that the government in its capacity has provided an enabling environment to make the private sector including Jospong to thrive.

“The company as of now, recycles waste and as well turns waste into compost,” she said.

She went on to add that Zoomlion would soon have the capacity to turn waste into green energy, and thus appealed for support for Dr Siaw Agyepong and his JGC.

Earlier on in a welcome address, the Executive Chairman of JGC, Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, indicated that the thanksgiving service has been held annually to acknowledge the faithfulness of God in the group’s operations, and also appreciate God for sustaining them.

“As a company, it is our custom to gather like this at the end of every year to celebrate the goodness of the Lord over our businesses, employees, families, the President and his executives and appointees in government, chiefs, partners and other stakeholders,” he said.

According to him, the Akufo-Addo administration has given real meaning to the truism that the private sector is the engine of growth.

“Through His Excellency’s transformational leadership and relevant policy interventions, an enabling environment for the private sector to grow has been created…Our achievements this year are largely due to the enabling environment that the government of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has created.”

He stated that the enabling environment created empowers the private sector to do more, advising that “we in the sector should not waste it nor take it for granted.”

He applauded President Akufo-Addo and his government, for their “immense contribution” to the environmental sanitation space in the country.

“The government’s achievement in this sector is unprecedented and historic and it is worthy of note that since independence, over 60 years ago, it is during this administration that Ghana has experienced massive environmental infrastructural improvement.”
