Update from Dan and Nancy Dunn

Dear Friends in Christ,

Nancy and I want to thank you for your generous support of our new ministry. Some of you are supporting us in prayer, some in financial giving, and some with both - and we are deeply appreciative. It is an enormous comfort knowing that we are taking this step of faith with you as our partners. We would like to take this opportunity to update you about some things related to our new ministry, and the transition thereto.

  • Our house is now on the market. We received an offer today, and made a counter-offer, so we hope to hear something concerning the counter-offer tomorrow (Wednesday). Please pray for God's will, instead of our will!
  • Kevin Klingler and I will fly to Venezuela Thursday afternoon for an 11-day trip. We are really looking forward to the opportunity to visit some pastors in the Barinas state who are interested in becoming Methodists. We will also enjoy spending some time with missionary Jon Herrin and his family.
  • I drove to Montgomery today to meet with a minister friend of mine who may be able to help me make contact with some churches in his conference there in Alabama. Please pray for God's help in opening the doors He wants opened.
  • On my last visit to Venezuela a couple weeks ago, we had 68 students in the Seminary, the most we've ever had. Additionally, we had 10 new students. It was a fabulous trip. The Seminary is a hugely important ministry there. Please keep the Seminary in your prayers.
  • Another joyous experience on my last trip to VZ was the privilege of serving the Lord's Supper at Pastor Efrain's church in Cabudare (outside Barquisimeto). I've attached a jpg picture file below.
  • Our support-raising continues. We deeply appreciate your generous support, and we look forward to God providing more supporters so that we can fulfill the financial responsibilities of our new call. Please pray for God to bless the support-raising in powerful ways.
  • About a month ago I preached a mission sermon at a church in Blairsville, and the congregation seemed to really enjoy it (it's a miracle!). This is an example of one of the ministries I am being called to - preaching and teaching in local churches to help them understand and get excited about supporting God's global mission.
  • On April 23 and May 21 I will be preaching at a church in Woodstock that is thinking about supporting us in our new ministry. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to move in these two worship experiences, so they will be motivated to participate passionately in God's mission.

Please allow us once again to express our gratitude to you for your generosity and compassion, as we partner together to reach the lost of Latin America.

Much Love and Many Blessings, Dan and Nancy
