Please keep the Assistant Warden of Programs Cameron (she's got a great last name) at Dixon in your prayers. Her executive secretary Heather is retiring the 26th of this month. An already overwhelming workload has become that much more overwhelming. Ms Heather truly was a blessing in doing her best in dealing with the technical issues related to class passes not being properly issued. Her leaving will result in this ongoing issue falling into the once again overwhelming work load of AWP Cameron.

Please pray for Chaplain Phillips at Sheridan too. She too has to deal with the technical issues with the issuing of class passes. In addition to that there is a crazy amount of paperwork she has to deal with. This has a major impact on the time she can devote to her chaplaincy to the inmates.

Both of these ladies are a blessing to me personally in their dedication to their responsibilities, especially in my being able to my teach the men. Thanks!   
To Him be the glory

Sheridan Correctional Center Afternoon

Joshua - Pray that I become a true man of God, that he will open up my heart and give me an understanding of what he wants me to be for him.
