DPM Update - 2017 Dec - Ministry trip reports

Posted Dec 16th 2017, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends
Manila, Philippines
Our recent trip to Manila will be remembered for a long time.  We experienced more tender and tangible presence of God over an extended time, than in many years.  We co-spoke with Greg and Wendy Simas from San Jose, CA.  A couple days of sight-seeing gave us time to become good friends. 
It all started a month or so earlier, when I was getting acquainted over the phone with the leader Benji Cruz.  I told him that many times in our...

DPM Update - 2017 Dec - 40th anniversary trip

Posted Dec 10th 2017, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Italy adventures and cruise
Early this year, Debbie was talking about our upcoming 40th wedding anniversary (which was in September) and said, "You know... I've never been on a Mediterranean Cruise before."  And light heartedly, I responded, "You know... there are many things we've never done before."  But I kind of had a feeling that it just might happen. 
Someone heard of Debbie’s desire to celebrate our 40th anniversary with a Mediterranean cruise, and graciously gave us a gift toward making that happen.  Since we...

DPM Update - 2017 Oct - Israel trip

Posted Oct 28th 2017, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends
Israel trip report
Our 3 week Israel trip with Dave and Ann Clark was an amazing experience… an exploratory experience… and a Spirit led experience.  It was an amazing honor to travel with them and get to experience a few frontier dynamics with orthodox and ultra-orthodox Jews.  Each of us had been to Israel before and done all the sight-seeing tours.  This time was about relationship.  We have some cool testimonies… and made some new life-long friends during this trip. ...

DPM Update - 2017 Sept

Posted Sep 13th 2017, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends
Partner with you
As you know, we never ask for money!  So, after informing you of our upcoming Israel mission, it's been especially fun to receive some spontaneous gifts from you.  We will be making some sizeable and meaningful contributions to poverty stricken families among the othodox and ultra-orthodox Jews. (See the last post for more details)  If this is similarly stirring in your heart, we'd be happy to partner with you in this venture.  We'll keep you posted.  
40th year anniversary
Early this year Debbie said, “This year is our...

DPM Update - 2017 Aug - Israel trip

Dear Friends
The God-adventures continue
In a few weeks, Deb and I will be joining some of our fellow God-adventurers Dave and Ann Clark, to make a trip to Israel for about 3 weeks, starting Sept 26 through Oct 17.  This happens over the dates of the Feast of Tabernacles (Succot).  There will be thousands of Christians and Messianic Jews in Jerusalem at that time.  We have many friends in Jerusalem and no doubt we’ll attend some of the Christian/Messianic Jewish meetings,...

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2017

Posted Dec 25th 2016, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Merry Christmas
and
Happy New Year 2017
Although the exact date of Jesus’ birth isn’t known, 
His advent changed everything.
"What was so astounding," you ask?
God became one of us so that we could become one with Him.
Being one with Him isn’t just rhetoric.
It’s real… more real than we understand.
That’s why Paul prayed,
“That we would know this love that passes our ability to comprehend.”
God is so much better than we know!
From the Hendrickson family to yours! 
We love you!
Mark and Debbie

Dear Friends
Holiday family time
It was tons of fun having all of our kids and grandkids home for the holidays.  We’re so proud of them all!  
Clouds have silver linings
We didn’t have a white Christmas but we finally got some snow a few days later.  Which led to someone plowing into our minivan and totaling it.  Nobody hurt!  But as adventures in God go… just a little cash added to the insurance settlement and we were ‘back in business’ with an upgraded...

DPM Update - 2015 Merry Christmas

From our home to yours
Merry Christmas… and a very blessed New Year!
Mark and Debbie and family
Once upon a time in a land far, far away, a very average young couple gave birth to a healthy baby.  Nothing much different here.  And that birth might have passed as your garden variety normal birth, if it hadn’t been for the shepherds and wise men who began to show up.  
Even though Mary had been pondering all those ‘crazy’ visits from angels, can you...

Dear Friends
The Great Adventure
Wow, it’s been awhile since we've sent a DPM update.  Lots has happened.  In fact, this Summer and Fall has been one of our busiest.  We’ve served at a WYAM DTS and 3 or 4 area churches for about 10 days in Canada, have been to California 3 times, to the Nordt country (WI & MN) several times, to Morningstar and many day-trips around our home region… we even led a several night meeting in my two home towns (Dallas City and...

Dear Friends
We’re back home in KC!!
Europe 2015
What a blast!  Four countries in five weeks:  Norway, England, Wales and Switzerland.  All but one of our hosts have been in our home in KC sometime in the last few years... and all were over-the-top gracious when we were in their home.  This was definitely a God trip, as we can see the fingerprints of God throughout.  We were in about 30 meetings in 34 days… so it was full, it was a wild ride,...
