As we pray for Hon George Heyman today, we are reminded of Your word in Psalm 37:4 « Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. » We are delighted he was chosen to head up this portfolio that he has shown in the past to have a such a passion for, and has worked diligently for good changes in climate change and the environment. Grant Hon. Heyman and his family much joy, peace and happiness as they celebrate the Christmas season. Thank You Jesus for answered prayer. Amen.
