Merry Christmas

Dear Friends.....

Merry Christmas!!!

Thank you for praying for the many connections as well as the Lord's safety for both of us (Carlene carried the responsibilities of home) during my 15 day trip to Korea last month.  I shared in 5 different churches and classroom settings, and continually sensed His leading every moment.  I am particularly excited about a renewed emphasis to intercede for North Korea.

We (representing the Portland area worship/intercessors) connected with family and new friends in the Olympic Peninsula this past weekend, and tonight, I begin a 5th year of ministry at the Portland Airport....worshipping literally in the "Oregon Marketplace." While much of my time will be spent beyond the security checkpoints, I will play Monday, Dec. 12th and 19th and Friday Dec. 23rd from 11am to 8pm in the public food are welcome to join me.  Please email or call to confirm if you plan to come out to the airport.

Also, these weeks mark a "renewed" chapter in my after 26 years, I felt the Lord asked me to re-enter the public school system and work occasionally as a guest teacher.  I have been busy these past days in several grade schools and a middle school.  It's been an adventure and a challenge....but very good.  Carlene continues her work at Mt Hood Community College and volunteers at My Father's House (a homeless shelter) and Chestnut Lane, (an assisted living home for the deaf.)  All our children are doing well.

Remember, there will be no Worship at the River this coming Sunday, December 11th.   Instead, we will be having a Worship Celebration on Friday, December 16th.  We’ll have dinner and worship together at A Special Place in Gresham.   Doors open at 6:30 for fellowship, dinner will be served at 7:00PM.  The cost of the prime rib dinner is $18.00 per ticket.

Reservations for dinner need to be made immediately.  You may call Delight at 503-380-7203 or e-mail her at if you plan to attend.  We look forward to being together with you during this special season.

Thank you for praying and supporting our family.

In His Love,

Darrell and Carlene Dahlman
