DPM Update - 2018 June - 'Open Hands' Israel trip #2

Posted Jun 14th, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends
The adventure continues
We joined Dave & Ann Clark again on this latest installment as Team ‘Open Hands’ stepped onto the land of our mission objective.  It was a great trip!   Walking out this vision has been an exciting adventure, because although we had pre-scheduled with some people, many of those appointments led to unexpected meetings later.

To our delight, our trips have been highlighted by many Divine connections and appointments.  In fact, as...

Dear Friends
Another Israel trip
Debbie & I are flying on Thursday this week, to Israel join Dave & Ann Clark again.  We’ll be following-up on our original objective in Israel, which is #1) create organic friendship with the Ultra-orthodox Jewish sect called the Haredim and #2) to come alongside them with practical gifts of money and personal items, such as clothing.
Our last trip in Sept/Oct 2017 and two subsequent trips by Dave & Ann have been overwhelmingly successful.  True friendships have developed which have led...

DPM Update - 2018 May - Asher's health

Posted May 1st, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends
Asher - sudden ailment
Our family has been going through a little health test with our youngest grandchild, Asher Mark.  It all started on April 2 in early evening, after John put Asher to bed.  At about 9:30pm he woke up crying.  After trying to console him, John and Cheryl soon realized this was not their typical Asher.  He couldn’t move his arms!  His arms were completely limp from his shoulders to the tips of his fingers.  He had just been playing with his 3...

DPM Update - 2018 Feb - New car story

Posted Feb 9th, 12:00 by Dwelling Place Ministries on Church & Ministry


Old car retired… new car acquired!
Over the last couple weeks nearly 10 people have given us sizeable financial gifts.  God knew we would need it soon.  He’s so good that way!
Debbie and I made a ministry trip to the ‘North Country’ Thursday Feb 1 through Wednesday Feb 7.  Even though our 2001 Accord had 320,000 miles on it, I thought it would serve us well.  As we drove out of our driveway, I said, “This will probably the last trip with this car.”  I didn’t...

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

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...

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
