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

Update - June 26, 2010


Services Last Week – at Destiny Church, Roswell, NM (Father’s Day) & Olive Tree Messianic, Albuquerque, NM – were a very meaningful. Dennis hadn’t presented John 14 – 16 in a long time and was personally blessed as he experienced God’s Word and warmth from the text. On Wed. 6/23 he presented Romans 9-11 at Olive Tree. Paul’s words of personal testimony were really received by His people and there was much prayer and ministry.

“My Wonderful Coma” Thursday Rehearsal - Continues to be a blessing to all of us. It is so much fun to get together and play! The actors tried going off the book this week and they were really amazing. We continue to gain insights into our own walk and lives as we work together and are forming lasting bonds of friendship and shared ministry.

The NM Church of the Nazarene Conference was held this year at Heights Church of the Nazarene here in Albuquerque last week. Dennis was invited to present the Book of James on Friday and also shared his ministry through his table during three days of the conference. It was great to meet so many dedicated pastors from around the state. The National superintendant was very complimentary in his address as he referenced the James presentation many times.

Suing The Devil had its Hawaii premier last week and the response war really great. This movie is really blessing people already!

Prayer Needs For This Week & Next Week

1. Dennis left for Detroit this morning. He has a REALLY full schedule with a ton of driving along with flying. “The God of Hope” audio portion will be recorded on Tuesday and Wednesday. The schedule shows his travels this week – It’s a lot!

5. The God of Hope Project continues to go forward and is being solidified. The audio portion will be recorded June 29 – 30th. The filming is set for Sept. 22 – 24. All in Ft. Wayne, IN

3. Our dear friend, Judy Otis passed away this week. Please pray for her husband David, their family and congregation. Also, our friend James Topmiller, Linda’s husband, lost his brother this week to a very sudden illness. The Topmillers were 6 hours from boarding a flight to Israel in New York when they had to rush home to say goodbye. Please pray for the family. Wendy’s dad had a stroke and is in the hospital undergoing therapy. His speech is severely affected but the prognosis looks good.

Dennis left this morning after a really busy week of services and impromptu meetings. It was a real challenge getting things together for this trip. The Lord is very active and has lots for everybody to do. Our biggest challenge is to not fall asleep but to keep awake and aware so that we can be available for what God wants each day. Our prayer is that we will remember to watch and pray. There are many needs all around us and many challenges. Let’s call on Him at all times. May the Lord bless you all this week every hour and every minute.
Warmest Blessings, Wendy & Dennis

Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? - 1 Corinthians 3:16


Services Last Week – Men’s Conference, Crestview Baptist, Albuquerque – Friday night was a night of fantastic worship music. On Saturday Dennis was one of 4 speakers at the conference. 3 men came for salvation. Dennis presented Sermon on the Mount and it was very well received.

Restoration Ministries, Albuquerque – On Sunday the 13th Dennis presented Jonah. It was a wonderful response as both very young and very old came for prayer and salvation. The children really touched everyone’s heart with their sincere desire to receive Jesus. On a sad note, Pastor’s Marci & Dinah Baca’s son Paul passed away last Friday night. We were so glad to be there to mourn with this blessed family. The service will be broadcast on NM Son Broadcasting, Channel 11 at 9:30 on Saturday night and 7:30am Sunday morning

“My Wonderful Coma” – We have the entire cast set for the play and are at work in weekly rehearsals. So far its been great!

Prayer Needs For This Week & Next Week

1. Dennis is traveling to Roswell, Destiny Church, this weekend. Please pray for their new pastor Dr. Scott.

2. Narrow Gate Theatre production of "My Wonderful Coma" Please pray for the cast and production. Rehearsal is next Thursday night.
3. Jason Blaiklock, the director for the Job movie he and Dennis are working on, has just begun pasturing a church! The shooting for the movie has been set for Dec. 6 – 8 in Sydney, Australia. Please pray for all of this as well as church dates in Australia for Dennis while he is there.

4. Suing The Devil is having its Hawaii premier tonight. Pray for a great turnout and response.

5. The God of Hope Project continues to go forward and is being solidified. The audio portion will be recorded June 29 – 30th. The filming is set for Sept. 22 – 24. All in Ft. Wayne, IN

6. Wednesday at Olive Tree Messianic, Albuquerque Dennis will present Romans 9 11 – God’s Grace & Israel’s Place

The Bible says “This one thing I do, forgetting the past and going forward into the upward call of God.” Phil. 4:13. Acting skill requires the ability to be specific. In a very similar way, Bible application and the work of the Holy Spirit in a person is to be focused. That is what Jesus means when He says to enter in through the narrow gate. We have a glorious limitation of choice. As we face the difficulty of our times with Jesus as our focus it is easier to make the choice to enter in through the narrow gate. We pray that Jesus will be with you and you with Him as we continue the journey this week.
Warmest Blessings, Dennis & Wendy

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. — Psalm 46:10

Praise Updates:

Services Last Week – In Oneida Full Gospel Assembly, NY – Dennis did a Friday night service where 5 people came forward for salvation and many came for prayer. On Saturday morning for their Men’s Fellowship he did an Acting One workshop. Their pastor, George, described it this way, “We began the workshop with our own opinions but after doing the drills, hearing God’s voice, spoken through our brothers, we ended with personal revelation.” In Acts 2:11 it says “they heard one another declare the wonderful things of God.” God was breaking barriers so we could really hear from God through one another. We ended up with a greater appreciation and love for each other and a renewed passion for God.

On Sunday morning, Dennis visited Faith Gospel Tabernacle Church, Liverpool, NY and presented the Book of James. This tiny congregation of 12 received the message, and Dennis, so beautifully. The Lord shows how He can bless both big and small, rich and poor. James, as always, is a wonderful teacher. Three people out of the 12 came forward for salvation. What a blessing! Pastor George of Oneida and Pastor Bob of Faith Tabernacle were so gracious.

“My Wonderful Coma” – Our first actual rehearsal was last night and the Lord was so good to all of us. The time together was delightful fellowship with God and one another as we explored our characters. It truly is “play” time!

Prayer Needs For This Week & Next Week

1. Narrow Gate Theatre production of "My Wonderful Coma" Please pray for the cast and production.

2. We will be in Albuquerque this weekend. Please pray for the Men’s Fellowship at Crestview Baptist that Dennis will be speaking at. The conference begins tonight. Tomorrow he will present Sermon on the Mount there at 1pm.

3. Sunday morning we will be at Restoration Ministries presenting “Jonah”

4. The God of Hope Project needs prayer for all the decisions regarding production. Our producer, David Illingworth, has a great vision to reach 10% of the world with this production.

5. Book of Job Project - Dennis and Jason Blaikock are in planning and prayer during their weekly Skype calls. Dennis is planning to fly to Australia in early December. Please pray also for Keith Brandt whom Dennis recently cast as Bildad. Dennis is helping with the casting and is assisting Jason with the production and direction.

From us to you … A timely word

2000 years ago, Jesus said “Behold, I stand at the door and knock”. Today, we hear the sound of His knock louder and clearer than ever. He is so close and through prayer and listening we can hear His voice and , due to His closeness, we can have the greatest satisfaction we’ve ever had as we pray. It has never been more important than now to pray with right motives. Our prayers are with you and our thanks are to you and for you.

Warmest Blessings, Dennis & Wendy
