Just wanted to update you on what DRAMA has been up to, as well as share a few pictures. (If you’re reading this via email and can’t see the images, try visiting our site’s blog).
The weekend before last was our leadership retreat followed by a Sunday evening outreach in Anneville, pa with team epsilon at Zion E.C. Church. That Monday saw team alpha at Fairgrounds Mall presenting the gospel in partnership with Thunder Outreach Ministries. Then, this past Sunday both teams were on stage again – alpha at Buffalo Valley Church of the Brethren in Mifflinberg,pa and epsilon at St. Paul E.C. Church in York, pa.
Saturday our beta team heads out to Morrisdale, pa to do some service work with our dear friends at God’s Clear View Ministries. Pray for us that we would have safe travel, that we might be a blessing and that the team would grow in unity as they serve together.
Well friends, DRAMA is now on the return phase of our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Muskegan with the Neville’s. The turnout for the workshop wasn’t huge but those that came did a great job. We’ll have to make a point of returning before too long. I think something will start there.
Tonight we’re back at NTBI, and an opportunity to share in their Thursday chapel has opened up to us, so be in prayer for that and for our journey home.
Thanks & God bless,
Today we presented for all ages at Ganson St. – from morning service to evening youth group, we were welcomed and the Gospel was shared.
In between services, we hung out @ New Tribes. It was great getting to meet and even worship with the students.
Tomorrow we begin our workshops. Pray for those thinking of coming and for us as we teach – for several, this will be their first workshop experience.
Thanks for your prayers; we are daily seeing God at work speaking to hearts and sustaining our team.
Well, we’ve already finished up our time in Knox and headed on down the road.
We made some new friends and saw God at work. I suspect we’ll be back at some point. God bless to all of you in Knox, Seneca, Franklin and Oil City until then!
Tonight we’re settled in @ New Tribes Bible Institute and tomorrow we will present @ Ganson Street Baptist Church.
Keep the prayers coming!
Well, we had our first day of travel and presentations. The team did very well with three full-length presentations running almost back to back. Saturday will be a much lighter schedule so pray that we can rest up a bit before we get to Jackson, Mi.
Our team is in training for the Great Lakes tour. We hit the road tomorrow! Prayers appreciated. God bless, Tim.
Just a quick update for those of you who have been asking. Yes, you can now give financially to DRAMA’s general and Tim’s missionary accounts online via our website. A button has been added to our home page for giving to DRAMA’s general account and another button has been added to Tim’s support page for give toward my missionary support account. In both cases, we lose a small percent in processing, but are now able to take credit cards and paypal accounts as giving methods. Of course, if you want to see 100% of your gift go toward our ministry, you can always just send us a check made out to “DRAMA Ministry” for the general account or “Make Believers International” for my personal support. All gifts are tax-deductible.
Thanks for your support – whether in gift or in prayer. It means a lot to us.
P.S. for convenience, I’ve also attached the new buttons onto this post.

Well folks, it might seem like things have been quiet here, but that’s not the case. August is a funny month for DRAMA. It’s right after our busy June/July camp season when our families start to wonder if we’ve all moved away and didn’t let them know. It’s right before we launch into our fall session and resume regular team practices. So two things characterize August – administrative catch-up and response team outreaches.
Admin – we’re planning a trip to Michigan in October as well as pulling together our plans for the fall teams (Alpha, Beta, Epsilon, Sprouts, Redemption Theatre and Project 2). More details on them to come. I’ve also gotten around to fixing and updating more and more things here on the DRAMA website. Added some new links on the home page and got my support info added to the staff page.
Response team outreaches – just because we don’t have a current team together doesn’t mean we’re not getting invites to present the Gospel. August is a favorite time for some churches, so we pull together a mixed team of old and current members on the spot and mobilize for various opportunities. Last week we got to serve at Manheim Brethren in Christ Church and this Saturday we’re headed into Philly (700 block of W. Russell St., Philadelphia, PA) to present the Gospel in a small inner-city playground in partnership with Middle Creek Church of the Brethren.
I appreciate all of you who pray for us. I’d really appreciate prayer for this weekend as many will be introduced to the Gospel through mime.
Thanks and God bless,
Now that I’m home from all of our summer camps, it was time to get to work on the DRAMA website. The Photo and Video pages are working again as well as the chat function and albums in the member’s area. Still haven’t fixed the forums.
Also, for those who haven’t seen it yet, the “Who is DRAMA Ministry” video was added to the videos section… or you can just watch it here:
This week and the next, DRAMA is serving at Arrowhead Bible Camp. This week we partnered with our sister team in Delaware to come and clean bathrooms, serve food and mop floors for their special needs camp. It’s already been a great week – God is good!
Next week DRAMA will have one team at Arrowhead teaching bible and helping serve as counselors for Arrowhead’s youth day camp. At the same time another DRAMA team will be at Woodcrest Retreat also teaching bible.
Please pray for us and for the ministries of these camps!
