It was a very special evening this past Friday. SOCPM recognized 12 men who completed the Malachi Dads program!! I was joined by my wife and special guest George “Modavador g” Salter the Discipleship and Resident Director (DRDs) for the Koinonia House® of Wheaton (KHW). George and I both spoke on the the Soldier of Christ's call and character prior to the distribution of personalized certificates to the men signed by Assistant Warden of Programs Mary J. Johnson and myself.
It was an evening of good-byes for some as Miguel, Charles and John P will parole prior to the start or shortly after SOCPM's new classes begin at Sheridan this fall.
I'd like to thank you all for being prayer warriors this past class and hope you will continue to be prayer warriors this fall. SOCPM has been blessed to return with an orientation for fall classes schedule for September 30th. SOCPM will be teaching two separate classes this fall 'Discipleship 101' which will include a series of four books covering basic Christian teachings and "Inside Out Dad" a book from Malachi Dads will return in a separate class taught consecutively in four 10 week sessions with a schedule to be determined.
There is also the possibility SOCPM will be teaching "Inside Out Dad" at Dixon Correctional Center beginning this Fall. SOCPM has a meeting with Dixon this Wednesday hopefully to finalize. God is blessing SOCPM with these new opportunities and covets your prayers for ministry partners for volunteering to assist in teaching, financial support and most of all prayer warriors o lift up the weekly prayer request.
