The SOCPM Summer 2018 Term is a wrap!

No cancellations, lockdowns or other issues this past week. Praise God!

Off to do an overnighter at the 'Taste of Madison' with my lovely bride Michelle. Will be meeting her brother Darren and his wife Pam. So my thoughts aren't focused on what comments from last week's classes and the term as a whole (might be a blessing to those who don't do well with my wordiness). But for now, want to thank you for another term of dedication in prayer. Lord willing we will send out prayer requests for Alumni requests and any requests received from ministry partners in the upcoming weeks.

To Him be the glory!
