Hon. Rochelle Squires, Riel

I pray, Lord, that you grant the Hon Rochelle Squires wisdom, because wisdom that comes from above will provide her with peace, love and joy to serve and serve well. Bless her today and surround her with your peace. Proverbs 3:13-18 Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Amen.
