Pacificministries Korea MARCH 2007

Dear Friends...

In just a few hours, Carlene and I will leave for Korea via San
Fransisco and Tokyo. Please agree with us that our time in airports and
planes will be profitable, not physically draining. We'll be making
our way from the northern border south to the city of Pusan...kind of
slicing the country in half. Following is our itinerary with a few

3/17: Meet with Korean Student Ministry Group

3/18: Speak in Seoul

3/19-3/22: Shalom North Korea Prayer Conference
We'll be with Deborah Oh, who is Heidi and Rolland Baker's Korea
ministry representative.

3/22 & 3/23: Visit Jesus Abby ministry center led by Ben Torrey. Ben
is the great-grandson of R.A. Torrey, who ministered with D.L. Moody in
Chicago and founded Moody Bible Institute.
Also, please visit their North Korean ministry website. This website is excellent...
a well defined vision for North Korea:

3/24 & 3/25 : Daejeon Foursquare Church

3/26 & 27: Pusan Conference (Southern part of Korea)

3/28 - 3/31 : KwangJu Conference

4/2: HOME

Finally, I want to share the background and essence of a word of
encouragement the Lord brought to us during Worship at the River. It
may have a larger implication and may resonate with you. First, a bit
of background:

We have had the joy of celebrating within our fellowship several new
births. Judah (an unexpected but welcome surprise), was born several
weeks ago to Erin and Kelly Leggett; and Mike and Kelly Baird welcomed
their their second child last Thursday. Steve and Karen Carlson have
welcomed 2 adopted children into their family, and Sarah and Brian
Hagan are proud parents of Lindsay. These babies are absolutely
perfect....and beautiful! Even our first grandchild (a boy!) will be
born this July in Minneapolis. And....

Sunday, March 11th was an unusual weather day. Daylight savings time
had been begun, and in Northwest Oregon, we experienced very unusual
springlike weather. At 6 p.m . it was 70° and we even kept doors and
windows wide open. Sometimes, the Lord will speak first in the
"natural" and then in the "supernatural" :

It is time to March forward. As in C. S. Lewis's parable The
Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the season of "always winter but
never Christmas" is over. Your winter of discontent is over. When
Aslan (the Christ figure in the story) makes an appearance, He brings
an ever so slight change in the atmosphere... the temperature has
shifted .... springtime and new life has began. We must step into this
season with confidence because Lord is birthing beautiful NEW LIFE.

Perhaps this encouragement will resonate with you....let us know if it does.

During last Sunday's worship meeting, many of you prayed for
Carlene and I with regard to this trip. We have visited this
strategic nation many times, and once again, North Korea is prominent
in current news. We plan to visit and pray at the DMZ border, and the
encouraging words about "open doors" and a "veil of protection" with
the Lord going before us and being our rear guard were wonderful.

Thank you for praying for Carlene and I, and please visit for travel updates.

Bless you,

Darrell and Carlene

March Update 2007

Dear Friends,

One significant truth that the Church is beginning to apprehend is the
incredible and creative worship expression in our children. For too long
we have provided children's programs to segregate them from the "big
church." Why? Are they attening "little church" and do they receive a
junior Holy Spirit?

Why do we so often dismiss the children? Jesus certainly didn't. While I
recognize there are appropriate times for separate meetings, the past few
months in several of our smaller meetings, we have intentionally welcomed
all ages and all kinds of instruments...even pots and pans. We've saxophones,
drums, percussion, electric guitars even rattles.....everyone from
3-72 years of age
contributing. As you might imagine, sometimes it's a joyful noise more than
anything else, but it has been wonderful to witness the biblical truth of
"when you gather together....everyone brings..."

Emily Giester is 12 years old, and often comes to Worship at the River.
She wrote a Song: The Lion of Judah. It's a wonderful song,
and we'll sing it this Sunday evening at the River. We welcome what
everyone, young or old, brings to the meeting.

On a completely different note, Carlene and I have done a fair amount of
travel lately, and my friend Jim Watt, recently referred to my schedule in his
weekly update newsletter. If you want to know what we have been doing...
visit for an edited version of his letter.

I refer to this brief part:

Darrell ... informed me – "Jim, I believe the Lord would have me meet with you
and Marie at Beth Chesed on Saturday. I will lead you in worship, and then share
what I see God is doing in the Pacific Northwest." WHAT a meeting we had!

Darrell ended up by asking for our prayers as he and his wife Carlene return to
Korea. Believe with them for the miracle of reconciliation between North and
South Korea in the "One New Man" concept. We laid hands on Darrell and prayed
over him, and several significant prophecies came forth.

Carlene and I leave for South Korea Wednesday, March 14th through
Monday April 2nd. We will speak at several conferences focusing on
intercession for North Korea. Please pray for travel safety, energy, and
"accurate hearing" as we visit once again this beautiful nation. Regular
updates will be once again posted on

This Sunday, March 11th, we welcome all ages to come and worship our
Savior and King, Jesus Christ, at Worship at the River. We meet in the
Sam Cox Building in the Glenn Otto Community Park starting at 6PM.

Darrell and Carlene

Jim's Letter

Dear All!

Marie and I had a Scottish pastor friend in 1955 in Chicago – Robert
Burrows. He obeyed the Lord by not learning to drive or own a car. He
used public transportation and the goodwill of friends as a means of
He led a pastor's prayer meeting of some 20-30 each Wednesday morning
at 7:00 AM for Revival for Chicago. One morning following this meeting
he informed me – "Jim – I believe the Lord would have me drive home
with you and have breakfast with you and Marie." Each time in the next
3 years when he said this, it was always an answer to prayer for
Marie. He always had an encouraging word for her. He gave us our first
copy of "Rees Howells, Intercessor" by Norman P. Grubb about that
time, and also the biography of John Sung by Leslie Lyall. WHAT a
challenge and blessing!

This last week Darrell Dahlman of the Portland Metroplex – in the
spirit of Robert Burrows informed me – "Jim, I believe the Lord would
have me meet with you and Marie at Beth Chesed on Saturday. I will
lead you in worship, and then share what I see God is doing in the
Pacific Northwest." WHAT a meeting we had!
I led our congregation in corporately praying through Joe McIntyre's
Crafted Prayer on the "Breastplate of Judgment," taken from his
upcoming book "Kingdom Warriors." Then we looked at part of the Torah
Reading from Isaiah 40-66. Next we saw a DVD – "Fire on Mt. Carmel"
with David and Karen Davis.
When Darrell received the service, he took the Crafted Prayer of Joe
McIntyre and extemporaneously led us in singing it together in "Ballad
Style," with the refrain of "Loving the Lord our God with all of our
heart, soul and strength."
The "presence of the Lord" descended on us, just as we experienced in
every service on Mt. Carmel two years ago. Then he referred to Karen's
word to her husband David the first service that opened to them in the
80's when they first came to Israel. It was in an Arab village. She
said, "David – I can't lead these people in worship, because I have no
rapport with them. As a Jew I came to minister to my fellow Jews. I
don't hate Arabs – but I have no feeling for them as I am sure God
has." So they stopped the car on the way and prayed. As Karen
confessed her heart-lack to the Lord, He came down and gave her a
spiritual love transfusion for Arabs that she already had for Jews.
From then on, the "One New Man" of Jew and Arab – started to come
together in Haifa, Mt Carmel, Jerusalem and then all Israel. Read
Reuven Doron's book "The One New Man," to see what God did.
This deeply touched Darrell, and he wove that thought into the
worship for all of us.

Next he shared what happened the February 18th weekend in Port
Townsend, Washington. Darrell – with Marjorie Baker, daughter-in-law
to HA & Mother Baker of China and "Visions beyond the Veil," and her
daughter Linda, are moving with Darrell to arrange for the coming of
Rolland Baker, husband of Heidi Baker of Mozambique, and grandson of
HA Baker – for his coming to Port Townsend Saturday May 19th through
Monday the 21st. Expect to see the Kingdom of God expressed – not in
word only at this time, but also in Power and DEMONSTRATION of the
Holy Spirit! Over 6000 churches have been raised up in Mozambique in
the last 15 years, with over 30 raised from the dead!

Then Darrell told us of his time in Victoria BC Tuesday and Wednesday,
and his visit with Bill & Edie Southward. They had part in bringing
several members of the Israeli Knesset to Victoria the preceding
Friday and Saturday. Some 500 Jews and Gentiles met together in the
spirit of the "One New Man." Pray for Victoria.
On Thursday he met with pastors and leaders in Vancouver BC along
with representatives from the Seattle area. His time with Russ Snyder
of this latter area was especially fruitful.
Next on the way to Normandy Park WA for a meeting Friday night, he
stopped off for a time with Bob Ekblad of Mt Vernon. Bob has spent
time with Rolland and Heidi Baker in Mozambique, and just returned
from a Caribbean Cruise with the same Bakers, Bill Johnson of Redding
CA – and John & Carol Arnott of Toronto. God moved on this cruise and
on some of the Islands they visited and ministered. Miracles of
healing took place.

Darrell ended up by asking for our prayers starting March 11th for 2
weeks as he and his wife Carlene return to Korea for ministering for
perhaps the 16th time in 6 years. Believe with them for the miracle of
reconciliation between North and South Korea in the "One New Man"
We laid hands on Darrell and prayed over him, and several significant
prophecies came forth.
