Discipleship Prayer Request February 28, 2015

You'll see several prayer requests for Stan Brooks and his family. Stan was the Director of Westcare an agency that provides counseling to Sheridan inmates.

He passed away unexpectedly Wednesday.
I never met him, but from what I've heard from many students he was admired and loved.

I also have a personal prayer request. My son twenty-five year old son Cameron, after approximately five months of sobriety relapsed. He is currently in DuPage County jail and  has no place to go if and when released. Please pray first and foremost for his salvation, but also that he can get entry into another rehab program and simply not released into the streets as has happened in the past.

To Him be the glory
