No pass issues nor updates on the chaplaincy positions.

It was overall a good week classwise.

Northwestern Medicine contacted Michelle and informed her that they would be making a decision this coming week. Michelle and I ask for your prayers.

I wish I had a positive update on Cameron, but he has hit another bottom and is in treatment at a hospital in Phoneix, AZ. I don't know much of the details his mom is keeping me updated. I talked to Cameron a couple of times on Wednesday, and he was sober but in a very agitated state. Pray he gets the psychological treatment he needs as opposed to being put back out in the street in a few days.

Thanks in advance for your ongoing prayers for the students, Michelle, Cameron.

To Him be the glory!
