It was a joy to return after an unplanned two-week absence, but it was squelched when I started dictation of prayer requests and be informed Randall, an SOCPM student since 11/2015 was diagnosed with cancer. Randall has such a repentant heart and love for Jesus it makes the news that much more challenging. Please be certain to lift Randall in prayer.

To Him be the glory
