Thank you, Jesus, for Ellis Ross. Thank you for his passion for this province and his willingness to go the miles to hear the hearts of people across B.C. While he focuses on the balance between the environment and needed industry, may he find solutions and have the ear of those who can help to make the changes necessary. I pray that he will have the insight and resources he needs to meet the needs of those he represents. May he be blessed with continued health and strength, and protection as he travels the many kilometres across this province. Keep him in your care, I ask in your name. Amen.
