Wayne another long time student attended his last class Friday at Sheridan. He's the one who often prayed for his little boy Dillon. Just this passed week I met a pastor from the Rockford area where Wayne is paroling to and is wanting Wayne to contact him for being a part of the church family and may have a job lead for Wayne in welding. Pray for Wayne and his little boy Dillon.  
Several new faces but sadly the same old evils; murder, addictions, estrangement from loved ones. Hearing of their trials and situations inspires me to a higher level of serving God.

I'm finding many despite what they believe they do not having a saving faith, do not know of God's sovereignty and forgiveness awaits those who believe in their hearts the blood of Christ Jesus on the cross.

Your prayers are so much needed and appreciated. Thank you.
To Him be the glory
