By the appearance of class participation, it was a fruitful week.

In all three Discipleship classes on 'The Assurance of Salvation, own ' there was no side discussions, that may be a first as the students gave full attention to the lectures by R. C Sproul. The one on 'False Assurance' resulted in several students questioning salvation. I'll be providing additional essays on this subject and I am hoping to purchase all graduates a copy of John MacArthur's 'Saved Without a Doubt' pending costs. Please pray that all the men will live out 2 Peter 1:10 and 2 Corinthians 13:5 and Grace to You will give SOCPM a discount on the purchase.

The Malachi Dads class at Sheridan is being blessed with consistent attendance of over 90%. This week's lessons on Salvation and Sanctification also was full participation. Please pray
God will continue to put in the hearts of these men their need of Christ in their roles as fathers and husbands and pass this need on to the family as a whole.
To Him be the glory!
