A number of students have commented on how the current class "A Soldier's Call to Study the Bible' has really helped them in their attempt to study the Bible. I give thanks and praises of glory to God for leading me to teach the course and for providing a curriculum that has been a blessing to the students.

I had to cancel Dixon's ...Renewing Fatherhood' class for the second straight week do to an issue of passes. I've contacted AWP Cameron and she has take steps to resolve. Please pray her efforts bare fruit and the class can actually begin next week.

A bittersweet good-bye and commissioning for Dominic last night. Dominic has been a SOCPM student since December 2013. He is scheduled to be paroled September 3rd. I've heard from Dominic and have counseled him on a difficult relationship with his daughter's mother. Please pray he hears the Holy Spirit and is obedient to the Holy Spirit's guidance and that he is surrounded with an army of solid Christian men upon his parole.
To Him be the glory.
