MLA: Rob Fleming

Photo of MLAToday we pray for Rob Fleming. As Chair of the Select Standing Committee on Public Accounts, we ask for wisdom and discernment over the finances of our Provincial Government and the clear and correct accounting reporting to its citizenry. We ask for God's strategies as he speaks into the tourism sector which is currently experiencing hardship due the global economic financial shakeup. May he be given insights into the whole arena of Advanced Education as we seek to provide post graduate studies of the highest and most excellent standards. We bless and honour his commitment to be a representative for the people and may God shield Rob and his wife Maura and family from the stresses and strains of public service.
