The Zion Chancel Choir, lead by Mrs. Clara Scott treated the audience to several Gospel songs. The choir and soloists poured out their heart and created happy and joyful atmosphere. Zion ushers added a sense of dignity to the occasion. A solo from Rev. Bennett’s daughter Karen prepared the way for the guest speaker. Juanita Pierre Louis warmly introduced the speakers.

Mrs. Hsu brought a 'golden light' with her testimony about the matching. Several members had spiritual experiences as Mrs. Hsu spoke. Rev Bennett was transfixed as he listened to the testimony of the matching. The audience loved having both Rev. Kenyatta and Mrs. Hsu speak and enjoyed seeing how they support each other. Several guests said 'I will never forget this.'
