all people are welcomed from home and abroad. Thank you for her voice of
advocacy that has brought great change and improvement in so many areas. We
pray blessing and favour on her as you lead and guide her and we ask a special
blessing on her family as well, that they may know your love and faithfulness
toward them. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen
