Father, We thank You for the provincial government leaders that You have placed in our legislature. Today we are especially thankful for MLA: Naomi Yamamoto and the abilities and experience she brings to her various roles. We pray that You would give her renewed vision, passion and encouragement. May You miraculously bring together the people, areas and visions required for her to fulfill all of the plans that she has for tourism and small businesses to flourish in British Columbia. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
