Matthew 7:13-14

Enter in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in through it. Because narrow is the gate and straight is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. ~ Matthew 7:13-14

April Notes

Early April was eventful. DCM - Dennis, Wendy and Stephanie, flew to Massachusettes where we were scheduled for 3 churches. Unfortunately, we could not do the 3rd, Calvaray Chapel in Cape Cod, as Dennis got freakishly sick as we were driving there and we had to call an ambulance. It turned out he had acute vertigo. We were really thankful that is wasn't life threatening. We had just stopped to eat when it happened and so God was watching out for us as it could have been very dangerous if it had happened just 5 minutes earlier while Dennis was driving. He is okay now but it would be good to pray because it hasn't quite gone away either. It is some kind of problem they think with his inner ear. Other than that, the trip was fantastic. We were able to do "The Last Supper Shalom" at Malden Nazarene and 2 services at Metro Vineyard North in Melrose. We used a combined cast for all 3 services from both churches and it was a real blessing working with these people. We stayed with our good friends Jim & Mary Ellen Fox of Melrose and had wonderful fellowship. The rest of April went GREAT! We were able to perform "The Last Supper Shalom" at several area churches for the Passover season and we did a special presentation of "The Sermon on the Mount" at White's Family Services in Wabash, IN. for the kids in their care. This was truly a blessing as these kids who have known such hardship and disappointment were able to receive with joy and gladness the love and care of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many were saved and renewed. In case you didn't know, Dennis works with White's in helping to find Christian people who are called to miniter as foster parents. White's is a truly beautiful organization and we pray that you'll pray for them. Dennis has been very busy getting "The Olivet Discourse" ready. That is Matthew 23, 24 & 25. It looks very promising and we can't wait to share it with you. It will be ready by June 1st, the Lord willing. Please pray for DCM's summer schedule, Dennis' vertigo and this newest venue. Also, another ministry that Dennis does and has been doing for several years, is the Friday morning Bible study at Hope Rescue Mission in South Bend. This Bible study is such a blessing to us all and it is growing and ministering to many people in need. Please pray for this ministry. We always thank God for all of our partners in this ministry. As we travel we need God's blessing because it isn't easy on so many levels and can be a real battle. Pray for our family. God bless you this summer - please email, write or call us - anytime!
