Entering the last few weeks of the 2nd term of 2016.

The second half curriculum in the discipleship classes will be 'The Cross and Suffering' by David Platt. Please pray that the distractions will be filtered out allowing the men who are truly seeking to grow in their walks with Christ can be blessed in dealing with their personal sufferings and that those still lost will have their eyes open to their need for Jesus Christ.

Also, pray for the father's and their children. I don't truly know, but I feel with the exception of a few, most of the men in the fatherhood classes are unsaved. Please pray I'm intentional in sharing the Gospel in the few remaining classes.
