Some good classroom discussion in Malachi Dads class at Sheridan after watching 'Inmate Challenge.' One inmate, breaking down as he said 'I don't want my kid growing up to be like me.

It's heartbreaking to watch but a joy to see they're coming to know the need for change in not just his life but his child's life and that the change only comes through Christ.

To Him be the glory!

Dixon Correctional Center

Randy - Aunt and uncles- health issues, Family for salvation, Kent's ministry and marriage proposal, Scott's and Michelle's health issues, Scott's son to find Christ!

Rafael - I was just offered, excepted and put in for a job for outside grounds. It is the same process for work-release. My counselor said this is a good thing. I see God is making a way. I stand on my prayer request to be eligible for permanent party work release so I can be with my son Christian, take care of my grandmother, Lucia, and continue to do the Lords work being a mentor and head baseball coach at Chicago Hope Christian high school. To God be all the glory! God bless you! Job 42:2 Ephesians 3:20 - 21

Sedric - I am losing my desire to stay in the word. I truly want to follow Christ but for some reason I'm slowly falling back into old habits. I want to strengthen my walk with Christ, but I'm losing it, and I need help in my walk with Christ. Please pray that I continue to follow Christ and that my desire for God in my life grows. I truly want all that God promised me! Thank you.

Armando - I need help connecting with my oldest daughter Kayla. Please all I need prayer, I need help from Jesus. Also, can you pray for me that I have no more legal issues and that I can parole home. I ask you to pray for me while I'm incarcerated to stay out of the way of these COs. I don't get in trouble but I ask that God puts a veil over me keeping me out of the way. Help me connect with God better help me be a good, godly man/father.
