DPM Update – 2014 April

28 Apr

Dear Friends

Kauai trip final
We’re back home from Kauai. When we left the temperature was 7 degrees and I had just used my snow blower to remove the snow from our driveway a few days before. When we returned to KC, the dogwood, red bud, ornamental pear and fruit trees are in blossom and the grass needs mowing.  Maybe we side-stepped  the last part of winter.  

It was an amazing good trip.  We felt like the Lord really gave unusual favor in island relationships.  Enough that we felt like we’ll be returning sooner next time.  In fact when we arrived at the airport to leave the island, our flight was overbooked.  So we volunteered to take a later flight.  United Airlines put John, Cheryl, both babies, Deb and I up in a beach resort for the night… AND gave the 4 of us a free one-way flight back to HI.  Sounds like the Lord to me!!!  🙂  Of course it will be up to the Lord to get us back home to KC.  I love His ‘Higher Law of Blessing’ strategies!!!  

This time we ministered in 2 new churches… the jail… and over 25 house church meetings or gatherings in 42 days.  We also met with the mayor of Kauai, met one-on-one with different pastor’s, met in pastors’ prayer meetings several times and participated in a Seder meal.  John and Cheryl also ministered in other churches.  I love this quote that I heard from a friend: “We love what we do and do what we love!”   To view pics from our trip.

Supernatural Provision book – Indonesian Translation
When you cast your bread upon the waters you just never know where it will end up… or in what corner of the world it will flourish.  I recently received a couple of copies of the Indonesian Bahasa language translation of Supernatural Provision.  God bless the Indonesians!!  To see the
book cover and for more info,

Upcoming wedding – Lydia and Chris
