MINISTRY PRAYER REQUESTS August 2017

Greetings,

My prostate surgery has taken a heavy toll than expected but I' thankful that I had medical care available to bring healing and recovery.
Deep heartfelt thanks for all who prayed for my healing.

To Him be the glory,

If you are not currently an SOCPM financial partner please pray about becoming one. See the end of the newsletter on how you can.


Prayers of Praise

I'm doing better in my recovering from prostate surgery that I'm able to return to active prison ministry.

I don't know the number of days, but Cameron has not had any relapses.

Have successfully connected several paroling students to churches.

Moody Bible has agreed to supply with copies of 'The Parables of Jesus'  by James Montgomery Boice for SOCPM students who successfully complete the current Discipleship class 'The Parables of Jesus' by R. C. Sproul.

I was reunited with one of my former Sheridan students, Jesse, who is now discharged, walking solidly with the Lord and is a volunteer with Mission USA a prison ministry in Chicago.


Prayers of Supplication

My son Cameron's salvation and sobriety.

That Michelle's and I don't have any further health issue.

I've been told by the Chaplin at Sheridan that correctional officers have been holding SOCPM students and other inmates from attending programs even though they have valid passes. This issue has been addressed to the warden's office. Please pray that action is taken to stop the correctional officers from not allowing inmates to attend programs

Please pray I can give time to fund raising, and be successful in achieving to raise enough monthly support to pay myself a $1,500 monthly salary.

Continued development of church partners and other post prison ministries.

Wisdom on the next curriculum for Discipleship

How to better use and the development of social media

With my recent health issues it has brought on times of depression, has delayed some planned ministry development and fund raising. Please pray I can adjust priorities and get some counsel in decisions related to ministry development and overcome depressions and have an abundance of energy and motivation.
