FISHERVILLE—On Saturday, April 13, 2019 the 12th annual Grand River Leadership Prayer Breakfast was held at the Fisherville Lions Community Centre with more than 300 people in attendance.

This event brought together the elected leaders from Haldimand County, Six Nations, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as well as MP Diane Finley and MPP Toby Barrett. Time was spent in prayer for these leaders, as well as in support of those who serve as police, firefighters, and paramedics.

The speaker this year was Steve Fenton, Founder and President of Battlefield International Inc. in Cayuga. In quoting Steve’s own words, he considers himself an “imperfect Christian.”

He shared his personal stories of how failures not only brought him to his knees, but how God, by His grace, used Steve’s brokenness and turned it into success. Steve chose Colossians 3:23 as his ‘life text’: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” He challenged everyone at the breakfast to have a life text to live by.
