Dear brothers and sisters; Thank you for your prayers. The men have responded to the teachings and are learning that the recovery is not merely a stopping point until they get back to the community. They are being built up for ministry through chores, serving one another, Bible studies, other class studies, going out in the community of San Francisco and delivering food and sharing the Gospel. In the evenings the men host dinner when the guests are invited in for a hot meal. They are closely supervised, and sadly, some men have dropped out. But the ones who have remained are encouraged to persevere. My brothers are receiving all the love and prayers so they can reach that time when they graduate. I am so pleased to share that some of the men are now attending our church services and one or two of my church family are going with me as I teach which blesses to the men. Please pray that our brothers will continue to progress and graduate in beginning of 2018 through July. God bless you all!
