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

DCM News - June 2004

Dear Friends,

If you have checked our website lately, you know that we, the Cole family, are moving to Albuquerque, NM. Earlier this month we had a beautiful Shalom farewell fellowship at our local church we attend, Cornerstone Community Church. It was very special. With Cornerstone and others who were there we now noted that “Chapter One” has ended and that “Chapter Two” is about to begin in the southwest. We wanted to say goodbye and say hello to them and now to you so that the illusion of time and distance won't affect our relationships except to draw us closer. We also wanted to use the opportunity of our moving to share more of the vision and purpose God has shown us for this ministry. Due to the nature of our ministry “local” is very relative because we travel. We see in Albuquerque and our new local church a training center (perhaps the first of many) and even more people to train into this call. God has shown us that this ministry is not just national but is international. Bible dramatization is really entering into the Scriptures and continuing through them with an emphasis on hearing and doing. In the doing (acting) we find a deeper hearing into God’s voice. What is more, it is all Scripture. “The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy.” – Revelation 19:10

We average right now over 100 services per year. Prayer ministry sometimes goes for hours and many have been saved, renewed and healed. Most of the healing comes out of confronting the spiritual issues in people’s lives after seeing and hearing dramatically the living-written Word of God. Our communication with local pastors and individuals from churches, particularly 100’s of fellow Bible demonstrators trained and cast in our productions, is an end in itself. In an extended way, you who are reading this are part of the flock God has given to Dramatic Christian Ministries. DCM is a ministry that supports the local church and leads its members into greater outreach ministry and strengthening of the local church body. We appreciate each of you so much. We are not a “show business” organization. We are Bible expository actors using dramatic forms to preach the Gospel message. It is very creative to allow the Holy Spirit to speak the Word of God through you. It causes in the hearer and the speaker a brokenness that leads to boldness.

We are asking you to please listen to God’s voice regarding Dramatic Christian Ministries. When we visit churches we depend on the pastors to ask the flock for financial support. We are missionaries and each mission has a “follow me as I follow Him” component. We right now have an immediate need for funds to meet our moving expenses. We also have a need for monthly and quarterly support as never before. As you pray for DCM, please pray regarding this move for financial support. The move would not be necessary if God wasn't specifically leading it. This move is in order to complete the good work that God has started in Dramatic Christian Ministries. The vision that He has made clear is to continue the traveling ministry but to add specific training ministry so that others will be added as missionaries. This ministry and vision is for it to grow into many people doing dramatic Bible demonstration here in America and throughout the world.

This letter is being sent to each person that has expressed, by filling out a card, an interest in this ministry. As DCM prepares for “Chapter Two” we invite each of you to partner more fully with us into this new exciting chapter. We are excited that God has brought DCM this far and through the obedience of many He will do even greater works. Please respond as you are led of God to do. Dramatic Christian Ministries is an example and ministry of completing our faith through action. Your response both for moving expenses and regular support is vital to the vision that God is doing in all of us. Thank you for your friendship and encouragement; your prayers and offerings.
Sincerely In Jesus’ Name,
Dennis & Wendy Cole
