A new chaplain has been hired at Sheridan, Chaplain Phillips. I met her yesterday Friday and invited her to sit in on the Renewing Fatherhood class and the afternoon Discipleship class which she accepted. Did not get an opportunity to talk with her at length but was encouraged by our short conversations. Please pray she will first and foremost be used for God's glory. Please pray she will find her position enriching to her own personal walk with Christ. Please pray that we both will submit to God's will and bring glory to Him in our serving the kingdom together.

To Him be the glory.
