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

This Week in Ministry Land

A recent letter from Uganda -
Dear Dennis Cole,
You are in our heart and we continue praying for you and your work. I know sometimes the devil rises to challenge us but when we have the lord, we are sure of the victory, Praise His name. As the fellow ministers we feel god has given us the burden to praying for you now and then, We feel there is need for the believers to pray for each other, we are commiting this week to praying for you and for your ministry, may you experience the greatness of the Lord and the favor of the Lord this year.May God richly bless you and shower abundance in your lifeYours
May God bless

Isaac.& Emily

We say thank you Lord for that. Dennis and I were commenting how much prayer is needed in ministry and we received the above in confirmation of this need. We also pray for our fellow laborers in the field. May the Lord richly bless the harvest He is reaping in you. Dennis is having a very productive ministry right now in Detroit. I just got off the phone with him and he says all is well with ministry and many saved this morning and we can only stand in awe of God's goodness and love. We know that if we continue to be faithful in putting our hand to the task at hand that He will bless us with His presence to cover our shortcomings. We encourage any reading with these words - God will supply you with the help you need at the time you need it. May you have a blessed week as you serve Him and love eachother - deeply.

Update - Virginia & The Book Of Esther

Haven't posted any news in a while. Thankfully we here at DCM have been wonderfully and productively busy in the Lord. He has taken us many places to see a lot of people. When John the Baptist asked Jesus if He was the one they were looking for he was shown the fruit of Jesus' ministry. Sometimes you may find yourself second guessing God and if you are in His will. We get so busy with details, production logistics and travel that we can hardly catch our breath. But when we stand back and look at all God is doing we find many salvations and restorations as a result of our efforts in the Lord. We can't take credit for it. It truly is a work of God. But the fruit is there and it is very sweet. Our best advice at this time - if you may have a tendency to be too hard on yourselves or are critical of others, remember this - all fruit has some blemishes and bruises but the more bruises on the outside, the sweeter on the inside. Focus on the sweet stuff. Thats the part God loves too.

We've had a great week. Just got back from Arlington, VA where we presented "Sermon on the Mount", "Romans 9 - 11" and the "Book of James". We reconnected with our friends Herb and Sheila Hartman and other good friends in the DC area. God is so Good.

Last week we were also in Oklahoma City where we performed our newest production of the Book of Esther "For Such A Time As This". This play is a comedy and celebrates the Jewish holiday of Purim. Based a little loosely on the book of Esther from the SUV
(Slightly Unorthodox Version) by Polli Rychlik and Fran Kraft
