An emergency count, where all inmate movement is halted for about 1.5 hours, a few minutes before the Renewing Fatherhood resulted in only 3 students attending. In addition the books for the Discipleship 101 class were not available for distribution. Ongoing challenges have been a constant at Dixon. Please pray for God to halt further challenges and allow for classes to be fully attended and supplied with the curriculum books.
Praise God Sheridan classes continue and continue strongly as we have some good group discussions on God's sovereignty.
Quite a few prayer this week so I'll let you begin lifting them up to our AWESOME GOD
