13 MIPs (Missing in Prison) Sheridan Malachi Dad students were found! One becomes a MIP when a pass is entered into the system for a student to attend class but the pass never makes it into the student's hands. There are possibly still 9 students who remain MIP. Praising God for the appearances of 13, praying for the nine still MIPs to also appear or if they are no longer are interested in attending they would make it known, as there are other dads on the waiting lists.

There are still several MIPs in both the 1:30 and 5:00 Discipleship classes at Sheridan. Please pray that any pass issues or other reasons preventing students from attending are resolved.

Thank y9u for your continued prayer support.

To Him be the glory!

Discipleship: Defending Your Faith - Part 1

Dixon Correctional Center

A. C. - I come to you to ask for your absolute power, grace, and mercy. I ask that you help us all, men, women, and children everywhere. May You free us of the addictions that keep us on the path to sin continually. I ask You give us all understanding of the freedom You gave us through Your Son Jesus. So, that we can follow You freely with the power to fight our temptations we face daily.  May we show others that with faith and God, freedom from sin, addiction, and evil is possible. In Jesus name, amen!
