Back to a full week, praise God!

Missed my buddy Julio, who was paroled Tuesday. He was a student for over three years. You may recall I shared recently that a few weeks ago he was diagnosed with liver cancer. Please be sure to pray for his recovery, that he adjust well but most important that the faith in Jesus Christ is a true saving faith.

Also, two students shared the death of loved ones; Andre in Malachi Dads share his wife of 22 years died from liver cancer. He claims she fought strongly for a few years but when he was incarcerated she declined fast and he struggles with not blaming himself for her quick decline. Please pray for his comfort and peace.

Joseph in the Malachi Dads and evening Discipleship classes shared about the death of his brother's wife and his brothers (do not know if they were one in the same). He did not share much but do keep him and his family in prayer.

To Him be the glory!
