Sorry for lateness. It was a very busy weekend.

Well worth the wait as Matthew, (Renewing Fatherhood, Sheridan) gives a praise of answered prayer of his son visiting after 21 months and as does Dominic (Discipleship, Sheridan) on an apparent reconciliation with his daughter's mother.

May Jerame (Renewing Fatherhood, Sheridan) be blessed with an answer of prayer as he struggles in missing his daughter's birthday and not seeing his children in 30 months.

Another prayer of praise, Kent, a long time SOCPM student, who was paroled on November 17, 2014 has successfully completed parole.

To Him be the glory.
