A great week, considering there were no cancellations or miscommunications that classes were canceled.

We had some very good discussions in the Sheridan's Malachi Dads class developing a morally pure heart. The many of the students were honest in talking about their sins and struggles, and many more were very attentive.

To Him be the glory!
