1. Services Last Week - A very fruitful time of ministry in Southern California! Many salvations and re-commitments were noted. Thanks for your prayers. Also, Dennis was able to get a midweek service on Wednesday night. This was really great and we are sure due to your prayers. We usually have our services set up in advance because it isn't easy to get a service on short notice. You are all awesome!
2. The home church meeting of Christian actors was a blessing and Dennis was able to connect in a very meaningful way with people in that industry. Please pray for Richard Rossi, the pastor of that fellowship, he has been ill. Please also pray for blessings on the new film he is producing and directing on the life of Roberto Clemente.
3. Our schedule is being added to each week, again thanks to your prayers but please continue to pray for dates, especially Holy Week and Resurrection Sunday.
4. Dennis' cold improved greatly over the week and is gone now! The Lord sent a new friend to Dennis, Noel Goetz, who was so generous with his home, his time and his fellowship during Dennis' stay in Banning. It is always a blessing getting to meet with new people along the way and is a tremendous encouragement and help to ministry as well as a direct fulfillment of Scripture with God's people share fellowship and hospitality.
This Week & Next Week:
1. You may have heard that World Vision's offices in Pakistan were brutally attacked and 6 people killed and many more injured. World Vision needs our prayers for this and protection around the world so that services to the children won't be hindered. Please pray for the families of these precious people.
2. We are doing a World Vision appeal at Hoffmantown Baptist Connection on Sunday. Currently we have 993 children sponsored over the 5 years we have been working with WV. Pray we'll reach 1000 very soon.
3. March 28th - Rock Rio in Rio Rancho, NM. Dennis will be presenting Matthew 23-25 "The Temple & Olivet Discourse", 8:30 and 10am services.
4. Please continue to pray for the 2010 schedule. We are very close to booking a Resurrection Sunday event. Except for our film shoot in Australia, every Sunday in May is unscheduled at this point.
1. Dennis and Wendy's trip to Nicaragua with World Vision March 22nd - 26th. We are really looking forward to meeting the children of the Area Development Projects there as well as all of the faithful World Vision staff on the field. Wendy is especially excited because she has never been on the field before. We'll be sure to email some pictures.
2. Dennis' flight has been booked for the "The Book of Job" film in Australia, May 3-5, 2010. Dennis has been offered the part of Zophar or Bildad. We are seeking services for Sunday May 2nd in Sydney where the filming will take place. Please ask the Lord's blessing and provision for this film and the finances and for our ministry to Australia.
3. Planning & Vision for Narrow Gate Theatre for the new play, "My Wonderful Coma". Prayer for our city of Albuquerque and its role in this new endeavor. We are really busy but are planning on starting read-throughs and auditions after we return from Nicaragua. Also, Dennis sent in his audition for the upcoming movie production to be filmed in Los Angeles, but we won't know for awhile about that.
4. Please pray for our Advisory Board members and their wives and children - Joe & Kim Crews, Duncan & Andrea Lill, James & Linda Topmiller. Also please pray for special friends of this ministry and our home group leaders, Marty & Leslie Fuentis. These are all exceptional people who have demonstrated a great dedication to the Lord and His ministry. They need prayer covering.
Thanks so very much for your prayers for this ministry. We are grateful for your help in this area and we are seeing incredible results. Lord Bless you! Please write us, we'd LOVE to hear from you!
Many warm blessings,
Dennis & Wendy Cole
