Lord we bring before
You today Wayne Drysdale representing Grande Prairie-Wapiti in our

Chair on the Resource Stewardship Standing Committee and participates on the
Standing Committee on Private Bills. Thank you for his previous municipal
government experience that has prepared him well to sit in our
legislature. Bless him, his wife Sherry, his daughter Jodie and his two
grandchildren. In Your precious name we pray. Amen.
