All dB admin paperwork is done, and class prep for Discipleship is completed through lesson 11; in short, I'm ready to begin 137th -142nd SOCPM classes.

A continued thanks for your prayers regarding my wife Michelle's employment situation but thus far it is still not God's will to have Michelle remained employed at her current employer of 14 years. She is now on leave without pay until May 31st. She is still receiving benefits until then.

She has investigated COBRA for after May 31st, and it is expensive, but at least it is available. She has checked out other financial assistance but the bottom line is it is getting close to May 31st.

We've also discussed my returning to the workforce but that would mean an end to SOCPM which both of us are hoping it does not come to that.

We ask for your continued prayer that it yet may still be God's will to have Michelle placed with a new client within the next 14 days..

Thank you.

To Him be the glory!
