When I went to compose this week's Student Prayer Request, I noticed last weeks was in a 'pause' mode and never sent. Thankfully classes in both facilities were canceled the previous week — Dixon due to weather and Sheridan due to family matters.

So, it was only last week's SOCPM Alumni that were not sent. As such, I included them in this week's Alumni.

Dixon was once again canceled this week because of weather conditions.

Praying next week everything will go well, and all six classes will be held.

To Him be the glory!
