Proverbs 18:15 says “Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.” Lord, we thank You for Doyle Vermette and his years as MLA representing Cumberland. He has always been ready to learn and brings much knowledge and experience to government. As he serves, we ask Lord that You direct his steps, for You delight in every detail of his life. Be his strength, shelter, protection and provision. Bless him and his family. Amen……..
