It  was recognition day at Dixon. In Renewing Fatherhood 13 dads were issued certificates and 20 certificates were issue to students in the Discipleship class.

A couple of prayers of praise; First for David in the afternoon Discipleship class at Sheridan where a reuniting in communication took place between him and his former wife. Second a part time (Tuesdays) Chaplain has been brought in at Dixon, Chaplain Weber. He is Chaplain full time at East Moline and I've met him a couple of times and see him as a strong Christian. Please pray a man of his Christian character will be hired on full time.

Please pray for my wife Michelle's continued healing of her broken leg and for me to have patience in serving her needs.

To Him be the glory.
