We completed 'The Assurance of Salvation' by R. C. Sproul. Next week is graduation week and the start of three weeks of bonus programs.

There are no updates on Michelle's job hunt. Cameron is still in the hospital but will be going to another facility Tuesday.

As always thanks in advance for your ongoing prayers for the students, Michelle, Cameron.

To Him be the glory!
