A good week especially in the Sheridan 8:30 Malachi Dads session followed up by an equally good Sheridan evening Discipleship. Both sessions were a reminder of the purpose in the call to minister to the incarcerated.

To Him be the glory!

Discipleship - The Holiness of God & His Attributes

Wesley - Pray that I stay and grow in Christ Jesus and Lord God and can help others grow and that we can get more together to have prayer every night. Thank you.

A. C. - Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. May You continue to bless us and use each of us as beacons of light to bring others to You. I ask that you help strengthen my wife and daughter in their relationship with each other.. Be with Scott to help him get the answers he needs with his son and with Michelle, may she get the job she has interviewed for. In your son Jesus's name, amen!

Bruce - Most gracious father God, I truly praise Your name give you all the praises for it was Your blood that was shed for my sins. And that by Your love we are totally forgiven. As Your children each day we seek Your compassionate love so that we too shall live up to Your ways. Without your grace and Love we all maybe sinners awaiting Satan to do to us; steal, kill and destroy us all, and we will destroy all of our brothers and sisters. By keeping Philippians 4:10–13 always in us, we shall never fall off your righteous path. And restore truth, love, honor, and peace to all. Thank you, Father, for another gifted, wonderful day. Amen

Christian Living: Malachi Dads - Family Restoration

Dixon Correctional Center

Bruce - Another wonderful, glorious day. Thank you, God for Mr. Kalas and his knowledgable studies of the Word of truth so that we all can come to terms about being teachable as parents, a righteous man of faithfulness guides and Christians. It is at this very point in our lives that as men we sit here, making real sense of those poor choices we made to get to this place. And that see those bad choices, poor, compassionate love that we were so blind to understand them truly. But as always Your love pours through Scott to help us see those bad choices that we made, and now we can become better men, fathers, sons, etc. And live better, richly in you Lord. And make peace with our loved ones and bring forth a new relationship with you them and your Scott’s son Cameron too. Amen
