Due to my wife Michelle's health issues classes at Dixon and Sheridan were canceled this week. Please pray for her and that her health improves allowing me to return to the classroom next week.

It appears I'm not the only prison ministry facing challenges Bill who conducts Bible studies in Illinois River has pneumonia and is sidelined from his ministry work sent me but some prayer requests that delayed due to computer problems.

To Him be the glory
