Classes resumed at Dixon but logistics of getting the students to the classroom and getting their books for Discipleship 101 remain a challenge. Ask for prayer to get all in place.
Sheridan's Discipleship 101 says good-bye to two students John a 3 time student gets paroled August 24 & Antoine a student since 10/1/10 as a Malachi Dad decided to step down to give hem more time to prepare for parole by focusing on a re-rentry program. John though a quiet man in words was a not a quiet man when it came to helping others in reading. Antoine was not like John, but willingly contributed almost every week of the struggles he had and how he found victory in Jesus Christ.
With several students being or preparing paroled, I'm beginning to get a feel what a school teacher must feel when he or she sees her students grow and step into world's joy's and challenges.
Your prayer support is a blessing thank you
Glory to Him and Him alone.
