Dear Lord God, we give you thanks for Belinda Karahalios. As she serves her constituents in Cambridge and dispenses her parliamentary duties, would you please bless her and her family? Your Word says that children are a gift from you. Please help Belinda and her husband as they seek to balance the duties of work and the delights of family. We pray for blessings and refreshment to be upon Belinda in midst of the busyness of these long days of serving Ontarians. Draw Belinda to Yourself by your Spirit and bring her to a greater understanding of your presence in her life. In Jesus’ name, amen……..
Belinda Karahalios was elected as the riding representative for Cambridge in June 2018. She has been politically active for years, having volunteered in the campaigns of federal and provincial Conservatives since she was 18. Karahalios grew up in Mississauga, the child of immigrants. Her dad came to Canada from Trinidad as a young man, got an education and had a successful career in investments; her mom is from Portugal. She studied biological anthropology at the University of Toronto, with plans to work in pathology or forensics. But sitting in on her first autopsy convinced her that wasn’t the career for her. Instead, she held various jobs in medical fields, working in sales and patient support, education and advocacy for drug companies and for the Ontario branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
