MLA: Cameron Friesen – Morden-Winkler

Father we thank you for MLA Cameron Friesen and
for the work he does for our province. We pray that he would be overwhelmed by
your love and goodness and that he would be encouraged daily as he continues to
serve his community. We pray that you would bless him and his family with peace
and joy and unity as they journey together. And that he would continue to
prosper through every step, and every decision he makes. In Jesus name, Amen.

He built solid programs through a commitment to fundamentals like measurable outcomes and meaningful assessment of learners, gaining the respect of students, peers and the community, and earning a reputation as a hardworking educator and advocate for music education in the public school system.
