Greetings All and praise God for the beginning of a new prison ministry season;
Though the time off and being with Michelle a whole bunch was a joyful time, I'm very excited and enthusiastic to begin the new ministry season and to be sending you prayer request! This ministry season has been blessed to have two additional class add to last year's ministry. This season will have two classes at Sheridan Correctional Center; Discipleship 101 which will focus on building a sound foundation of day to day discipleship. the second class at Sheridan and the inaugural class at Dixon Correctional Center is 'Renewing Fatherhood.' It will focus on teach the students fathering skills and the overcoming of their own wounds brought on by their own childhood.
I'm so fill with joy I ask you lift prayers of praise for God blessing me with these opportunities and other prison ministry serving opportunities but that I remain humble and serve for His glory and His glory alone.
I also thank God for you and thank you all for being prayer soldiers for all the students.
