Classes at Dixon were canceled but for a good cause, I joined up with ministry partner New Life Corrections Tuesday & Wednesday for the 2-day seminar 'Freedom From Fear.'

At Sheridan, it was a bittersweet Friday evening Discipleship class when we commissioned two long term students, John (05/2015) and Michael S. (05/2016), for parole next week.


To Him be the glory!
