The teaching portion of classes at Sheridan have completed. Next week September 7 will be the recognition ceremony for both Renewing Fatherhood and Discipleship 101 module 3.
Next week will be the recognition ceremony where the men will receive certificates and Bibles (a gift from Tyndale House). Refreshments have already been denied but I am planning to show the men a DVD 'Inmate Challenge' a panel of three inmates from Louisiana State Penitentiary (aka Angola) encouraging and calling on inmates to be the fathers and men God created them to be. Please pray that the DVD player and TV will be available and ready for the students to watch this awesome DVD and that a change of heart by administration to provide refreshments.
Pray for Dixon. The overall attendance remains a problem
especially in Renewing Fatherhood. I'm not sure if it is related to passes not being issued, schedule conflicts or the hearts of the men are not open to the teachings. Pray God will bring to the surface the reasons behind the poor attendance.
Glory to Him and Him alone.
