We pause to pray today, Lord, for Ronna-Rae Leonard as our new MLA for Courtenay-Comox. Equip her Lord, to use her experience in local community service and involvement in various environmental issues and community organizations to serve effectively as a new member of our provincial legislature.
May she be given the grace to serve with integrity not only the citizens of her local riding, but also contribute to supporting needs and addressing challenges within this province, whether through her involvement in the standing committee on agriculture, fish and food, or in whatever other capacity she is called to serve. For such a time as this, Lord, allow her to be utilized in capacities where she can bring her passions to bear to help BC citizens.
Bless Ronna-Rae, her husband, Ron, and her whole family as they all adjust to the new rhythm and demands of her serving in political office in Victoria. Bless her richly, and equip her to be a blessing to those she has been called to serve. We thank you, Lord, for her willingness to serve and to be used by you to support and help others. Amen.
Ronna-Rae Leonard was elected as the MLA for Courtenay-Comox in 2017. In May 2018 she was elected Chair of the Select Standing Committee on Agriculture, Fish and Food.
She has lived in the Comox Valley for over 25 years, has strong connections to her community, and has been a dedicated advocate for families, seniors and the environment throughout her career.
