A quick note to tell you several of the students commented how thankful they are for you prayers a couple have included prayer requests from their cellies. The desire for prayer request and knowledge of God's love continues to grow. Praises to Him for His response.
As an FYI I will not be going into either Dixon or Sheridan next week as I will be a a conference in Louisville "Together for the Gospel" with three leaders from my church Redeemer Fellowship I ask for you prayers for safe travel and that we all would be blessed with great worship, teaching and fellowship.
