The new term is underway!  

Will be teaching 'The New Birth' with  Steven Lawson in all three Discipleship classes. As for Dixon's Malachi Dads, it will 'Psalm 1' and 'The Heart of a Father.' While at Sheridan it will be 'The Heart of a Man' for both of the Malachi Dad classes.

There was a lot of new students for both Malachi Dads classes at Sheridan and quite a few for Discipleship afternoon. It was a blessing to see many new faces.

However; the blessing fell short at Dixon of a registered twenty-six students for Malachi Dads only six showed up. With several new students and no new students, I'm assuming a fair number forgot or simply didn't know the new classes started today.

The turnout for the 5:00 Discipleship class was the biggest disappointment. I was told that the paper passes for the class had an issue in the printing, and as a result, only ten students showed up. But, it was a fruitful class.

Thank you.

To Him be the glory!
