Later today I will prepare the last 4 of 16 lessons from Attributes of God, finish preparing 4 quizzes on AOG, send gate pass request to Dixon and Sheridan for 25 copies of Inside Out Dad Christian workbooks, Tabletalk magazine, Today in The Word, In Touch and Our Daily Bread devotionals. Sharpen a supply of pencils and pack up a good supply of requests sheets.

The request sheets are used by the students primarily for prayer requests but several will use them for note taking and the submitting of questions on the Bible or questions on theology and doctrine in general.

I go through a lot of requests sheets every week and with class sizes on the increase I expect to go through a lot more in this coming year then I have in past years. Made from a half sheet of notebook filler paper I go through requests sheets rather quickly. To keep up with the demand I recently bought 10 reams of 500 sheets and with the approximate 400 sheets I already have in supply I'll have about 10,800 sheets to get me through 2016. I hope!!

I and the students are looking forward to being blessed with your prayer support in 2016.

To Him be the glory,
