Update from Dan and Nancy Dunn


Dan and Nancy Dunn finish 12 years as Minister of Missions at Mount Pisgah UMC in Alpharetta and move to Wilmore, KY where Dan will puruse his PhD. at Asbury Theological Seminary while continuing to expand his work in Venezuela and Costa Rica. Below is a partial update from the Dunn's. If you would like to receive his full periodic update, just write to him at the email address at the botttom of this post.

Upcoming Schedule
Dan will be in Athens next week (June 12-15) for Annual Conference. He then flies to Costa Rica on June 16th for a month-long trip.

Nancy continues working through June 30, then flies to Costa Rica July 3 to spend two weeks with Dan. After we both return on July 16th, we will take that week to do final packing. We hope the movers can move us to Wilmore the week of July 24 or the week of July 31.

On August 7th we return to Atlanta, so Dan can teach an evangelism workshop in Marietta. On August 10th we fly to Venezuela to visit Pastor Thoby Ramirez (pictured above), and Dan will preach there on Sunday the 13th. We then fly to Barquisimeto for Seminary classes, where Dan and Warren Lathem will teach a course on Global Mission Outreach. We return to the States August 21, and begin the final process of settling in before beginning the semester begins.
