Several more students have been dropped due to lack of a Chaplin at Sheridan. Please pray for this position to be filled asap.

The temporary chaplain at Dixon has been assigned back to his regular duties and will remain unless no one with seniority over him applies to be the temporary chaplain. If no one applies there is a stronger chance he will then be hired a permanent chaplain. He is well-liked by both volunteer and inmates pray that he gets the position of full-time chaplain permanently.

I've been encountering several students who have a prosperity gospel background. Please pray I can correct them in their theology without being disrespectful.

To Him be the glory!
