An OK day at Dixon, Sheridan had a 1st shift staffing shortage, thankfully only four buildings were on lockdown and not the full facility. Three of the four classes were affected, but all was normal for the final class.

It appears IDOC is looking to empty a good number of cells, at least at Sheridan. Word is an inmate gets ten days of good-time for each Malachi Dads class. I was joking with the guys, that there will be a tuition hike of 10%, on the current tuition $0.00. There apparently are other incentives hence a few prayers for six mons good times.

A bit of a sad note Michael an evening Discipleship student has who been submitting two or three prayers a week to in hopes of going home (July 20th) to return to his family had those hopes denied. A new date is in September. He has taken in stride. When I expressed my sorrow, he replied, 'It's alright that just a little more than a month away it will come quick.' It's a joy to hear contentment even in unanswered prayers.

To Him be the glory!
