April and May Update 2010 for Colombia "Oscar and Patricia"

Posted May 15th 2010, 07:02 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living


Dear Partners in Christ,
It has been a little while since our last update but I am glad to say that the churches in Colombia are doing well and even better yet growing.  In the words of Oscar, "we are evangelizing and new families are coming to church."  Yet, there are challenges, people come and people leave.  Oscar shares that people find it hard to...

Prayer Update for Mark & Teresa Dempsey January 2010

Posted Feb 13th 2010, 04:52 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living

Dear Partners in Christ,
Time often goes by quickly yet life in Colombia continues down a steady path of stability and growth. The year 2009 was a great year that established Oscar and Patricia's ability to lead the churches in Colombia and helped to establish the fact that they are indeed the ones that will need to lead the work forward. The churches have grown and in the year 2009 more than 70 people were baptized into Christ.
Yes, there...

Prayer Update for Oscar & Patricia

Posted Nov 13th 2009, 07:38 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living

Dear Partners in Christ,
It is easy to write when the news is good but when the news is not as we would like it is much harder to share the news. The past few months we have been working with Jairo and Marcela in Los Alpes. The work is never easy, but it takes stamina to continue day in and day out in ministry. Sadly to say, that Jairo and Marcela have made the decision to not...

Posted Jul 22nd 2009, 07:16 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living

Dear Partners in Christ,
Yes, it does seem a little odd to put out a prayer update that bears the name Oscar & Patricia but I think it is appropriate. Much has happened since I have last shared with you about the work in Colombia. Teresa and I have been in the states now a little more than a year yet the work in Colombia continues to advance in numbers as well as wisdom.
It has not been easy for...

Prayer Update: for Mark & Teresa Dempsey

Posted Dec 1st 2008, 11:28 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living

Dear Partners in Christ,
Things continue to go well in Colombia, I must say that the transition is doing very well.  The leadership of our partners in Colombia, Oscar and Patricia and Javier and Marcela is growing and more ministers are now coming on line to help in the new church plant that is now in progress.  Much of the effort of the new church plant is to plant a church in  a little higher socio-economic group.  The churches are poor...

Prayer Update for Mark & Teresa Dempsey Summer 2008

Posted Sep 22nd 2008, 08:08 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living

Even though it has been awhile since we last communicated it has not been for a lack of things to share. The work in Colombia continues to progress at a good pace and many things have happened over the past few months that are promising. As you all know we are in a transition. As our ministry changes, so the work in Colombia changes. As of August 31, 2008, the Dempsey family is officially back...

Prayer Request

Posted Mar 24th 2008, 01:02 by Christ for Colombia on Christian Living

Hi Everyone,
I got this e-mail this morning that I was just able to read from Noelle Peterson:
After 25+ years of good health and no seizures, Robert’s mom had a seizure while visiting his church in Bogot'á, Colombia yesterday. Back then her seizures were when she needed rest, and hadn’t slept well. She has been in Colombia since March 6 and spending time with her son and grandchildren. She has appeared to wake up since then, but has not communicated with...

January 2008 Update for Mark & Teresa Dempsey
Christ for Colombia - Team Expansion
What a great month for the advancement of the work in Colombia!  The churches continue to make significant advances and the attitude that is present is positive.  People are excited about the future and at the same time a little apprehensive.  Yet, that can be expected when so many changes are on the horizon.  Yet, I am positive, that if we had not announced the transition the advancements...
