Nearing the end of another term. Please pray for the last few weeks to open hears to the Gospel as the fatherhood classes hear how to be activelyinvolved in their children's lives while incarcerated and in the discipleship classes they hear in how to deal with suffering through the Cross to God's glory.

A prayer for a friend and colleague Bob in the going home of his wife Joyce.

A couple of prayers of praise. A program that offers dads to record themselves reading a book to their children is returning to Sheridan. Please pray it will return to Dixon and all IDOC prisons. Finally, my son Cameron is nearing six months sobriety and he was recently promoted in his job at the halfway house where he lives from Night Desk Manger to Director of Operations. Pray through these blessings that Cameron's heart will open to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

To Him be the glory
