Father, as we “humble ourselves and pray” we raise up MLS Ellis Ross, Romans 1:9 “… without ceasing I mention you.” Today, we thank You for his years of service as a business owner, councilor and chief councilor for the Haisla Nation. Father continue to give Ellis wisdom in his role in Government and with those who are working with him. May Ellis enjoy his family time with his daughters and grandchildren. In Jesus name we pray Amen.…….
