There are still pass issues at Sheridan, but hope to have them all resolved next week.

This week found Stephen from Dixon being discharged. What makes his discharge notable is Stephen is the longest record for consecutive classes. Stephen took his first class 'The Holiness of God' back in July 2013. He stopped coming in March 2018 because of his having attended all the planned courses for 2018. Please keep Stephen in your prayers as he transitions back into society after being incarcerated since November 2012.

To Him be the glory!
