DPM Update – 2015 December

4 Dec

Dear Friends

The 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 near Calgary, 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 Pontoosuc, IL) in August.  That was so much fun… after being gone for 40 years.  You can find our past and future itinerary, here.

One of the reasons you haven’t received many DPM updates is because I’m posting more of my inspirations and updates on my blog, ‘Beyond The Map’.  I’ve given it that title because ‘normal’ can sometimes feel very predictable… so I must commit to living Beyond The Map.  That’s what keeps me alive.  In other words, if I only do what I did yesterday, then I don’t grow… because my faith muscle never get exercised.  So I’m learning to live dependent, not upon what I know, but on His leading and His empowerment beyond my knowledge or ability.  This is wildly fun territory, filled with the richest of rewards.

We’ve collected some really cool testimonies along the way.  To read of healing, life transformation and supernatural provision stories, click here.

Supernatural Provision book
To get your own copy of Supernatural Provision, click here.  We fulfilled the original contract of 5000 books and are well into the next contract.  All the books have been given away free gratis (except for sharing the cost of shipping).  Of course you can always purchase it in hardcopy or kindle format on Amazon, or from any of the online bookstores.  I’m totally amazed at how God has supplied the necessary funds for us to purchase and give them away.   But He’s just that GOOD… and more!!!  If you would like to follow SP on Facebook click here.

Beyond the Map – my blog
I’d like to invite you to subscribe to my blog, Beyond the Map.  You’ll find several hundred posts of insights, testimonies, quotes, family matters, audios, etc.  There’s something for everyone… just search by category… or by a specific word.  And like our DPM Updates, we have never asked for money.  Our hope is that our communications would never ‘take from you’ or even ask from you, but rather, create inspiration and give encouragement to you, making you feel empowered to fulfill all of your God-given dreams.

Sign up
To follow Beyond The Map blog, click here.  Then add your email address to the “Follow” box on the right side of the page… OR… click on the red “RSS – subscribe” icon.  You will then receive every new blog post.  And of course, if this doesn’t interest you… or you just don’t have time for another email in your Inbox, then just ignore this invitation.  I totally understand.

Home for a while
Debbie and I have no plans for major travel through the whole month of Dec and most of Jan.  More grandkids times… and friends, discipling, day ministry trips, etc.  It’s just so good to ‘flow’ with the seasons of God.  His yoke is easy and His burden is light… and He knows when we’re to run and when we’re to rest.  He’s the best administrator and booking agent.   If we move with Him… it’s ‘easy peasy, lemon squeezy’.   🙂

You are Champions!
Thank you for each and every testimony of your valiant overcoming lives.  We sincerely thank you for your love and care for us.  You truly inspire us.   You are an inspiration to many more people than you know.  And you are more dynamic than you think you are.  Not only is heaven lovingly watching, but your friends and neighbors are watching and wishing that they had the ‘guts’ to do what you are doing.  You are making Jesus proud!!!!   We declare much grace to you and yours!

Lots of love
Mark and Debbie

      What can we do… just sit around and twiddle our thumbs… and go ‘out to pasture’!?!?!? Don’t think so.
      Life is too much fun to just let it pass by. But then you know what that’s like… you have your own adventures out into fresh (and sometimes difficult) territory.
      This is what we were made for! Much blessing!
