DPM Update - 2017 Sept

Posted Sep 13th, 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

Posted Aug 30th, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


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,...

Dear Friends
We have a 'Grand' announcement to make:  We're grandparents again... and again!!!

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,...

Dear Friends
Norway report
Yesterday was our last day in Norway… and leaving tugged at our hearts… leaving us a little sad.
Overview
Travel… 23 hours on a plane and sitting in an airport...   Even an overnighter somewhere over the North Atlantic with about 200 friends.  Hmmm… my bed at home sleeps much better.
On the flight from Oslo to Bergen, Norway, the pilot did a 5 minute 360 degree circle so that everyone could try to get a glimpse of a nearly total solar...

Dear Friends
Last week in San Diego and Tijuana was an amazing week
As expected, Dave and Ann Clark usually have a God-‘swirl’ going on.  Tuesday evening at City of Refuge was amazing.  A team of college kids from TN were there to serve the ministry for a week. We joined them for a meal and worship time.  And O, my!  The body prophetic ministry, gentleness and tenderness in the room was off-the-hook good… many God-tears.  A distinguished SD business man was also a guest that...

DPM Update - 2014 December - Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas
and the happiest New Year, yet!
 
About 2000 years ago in a sleepy little town of Bethlehem, God revealed Himself on earth in a human body.  That fact is amazing.  But even more amazing is that because of His life here on earth, He now reveals Himself in you.  Jesus didn’t come to just be Emmanuel… God WITH us… much more importantly, He came to make His home IN us.  He revealed the mystery that was hidden for the ages… the treasure in our earthen...
