Dupree Praise -
1. The eight current PERSPECTIVES classes have just completed their first reportings with 524 students.
2. I always enjoy serving at the Chinese 'World Christian Conference' every President's Day weekend. This
time was extra special because the Lord placed on my heart to ask my small group of seven if I could teach
them to share the gospel. While doing so, two accepted Christ during the training. What a blessing.
3. The TRACTION Conference at WJU was great. Many people commented on how it inspired them. The
attendance was near 300 with a variety of worship styles, break dancers, comedian, testimonies, art gallery,
workshops, etc. A young lady from Brazil really wants me to organize a TRACTION in Brazil. Two people just
had to start taking PERSPECTIVES now because of Holly's testimony, even though the course was already on
Lesson 4. One wants to be trained to be a PSP Coordinator.
4. My three workshops at the BASS Convention (no, not fish - Bay Area Sunday School) were all well received.
The Missionary Candidate Prep class was smaller but the other two were very full.
Dupree Prayer -
1. Thank God we finally were able to solidify the host church and date for the next PCW (Perspective Coordinator
Workshop). We had difficulty because different church dates were conflicting with available dates for some
presenters. Pray the Lord motivates many people to register online www.perspectives.org for the May 30-31
PCW at Valley Bible Church in Pleasanton.
2. Pray for Marielle who is overloaded since taking on the role of Children's Director at River Oak Grace. She is
also having to do the taxes for her elderly Dad. To take the pressure off her, I have relieved her from handling
the finance prep for Harvest Group and PSP expenses.
3. Please pray for church leaders. We are living in an evil era when anti-Christ forces have been aggressively
attacking all of Christianity, Biblical principles and churches. 2 Corinthians 2:14
