We just finished our service for April and it was a great time of personal ministry. Thank you to eveyone who came and worshipped with us! Here is a testimony we received from tonight's service: "David's word to me was awesome! Such a HUGE blessing to me right where I am at this moment in my life. What a timely word from a very loving, caring, Heavenly Father. Thank-you!" Twila

"When Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and He healed their sick." Anytime Jesus was “moved with compassion” or “had compassion” He acted. Check out Matthew 9:36; 14:14; 18:27; 20:34; and Mark 1:41; 6:34. The word "compassion" is a noun, but Jesus made it a verb - an action word. We all, as a nation, even the world, have been full of compassion for the terrible loss recently suffered by the people in Newtown. Jesus responded in a way that we also can respond: He ACTED. His compassion MOVED Him to action. When Jesus saw our need He was moved to DO something about it. Instead of becoming depressed, dark, down, and overwhelmed, He gave what He could: healing. Instead of turing inward, He reached out to help make the circumstances better. We want to encourage you to do the same. The children who died in Newtown are in the arms of the Father, in heaven forever in peace, they don't need our help, but what about the children you know? What about the children on your street?. . .In your neighborhood?. . .In your city?. . .In your state?. . .In the world? What about reaching out, giving what you can to make the situation in your environment, in your circle of influence better? Don't loose heart. (See II Corinthians 4) Don't sit at home depressed, down, feeling hopeless, instead get up, get out, make a move and in honor of that tradegy be MOVED like Jesus to do something to make the world better.

There are four different kinds of love discussed in Scripture: eros, storge, phileo, and agape. God loves you with an agape love. He loves you as if there were no one else to love in the entire world. He doesn’t love you because you are somebody; He loves you so that you can become the object of His love.
As you read this book, you will come to understand what real love is - God's love - and what human love is. You will learn that God’s love is the highest love available and that it is truly endless. Get your copy for $3.99 today at: www.smashwords.com

I have received promises from God including a word from your Grandpa 15+ years ago and what God has promised is far beyond me or my circumstances. Your word of "How Can" is very applicable since I have no idea how this will take place. Thank you very much for the encouragement and reminder that God CAN and WILL even though it looks impossible at this point in time." Jeremy

We had a great service last night at our July 31, Memorial Webinar, and received some great testimonies that we will be sharing with you. Here is one: "Thank you for continuing this ministry. April 10-11, I was listening and writing out Dick's previous Words to others from his last meeting, hoping for a Rhema for my situation, but fell asleep both nights. A couple days later, I received a note/Word from Dick in the mail, dated 4/11/12, the same day that I was "listening" for a Word from Dick. Perhaps I was pulling on his Spirit. I was completely surprised!! Before I could write back, I received the Memorial newsletter and cried. His note to me was as though he was saying, "Good Bye," before he died. Thank you. Be BLESSED! M.J."

UPDATE: On May 25, in the early morning hours, Dick Mills went from the arms of his family to the arms of the Lord. The Body of Christ has lost a powerful prophet of God who spent his life seeking the Lord and serving Him in a pure and upright way. His voice and ministry will be missed by many, but the legacy of the call of God will be the prophetic word he as spoken into the lives of tens of thousands of people across the world. While many of these words have come to pass, and his voice may be stilled, there are thousands of promises yet to be fulfilled. Betty Mills, the family, and staff of DMM are so grateful for the outpouring of prayers, love and concern. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. As soon as possible we will post the service times and other information.
We wanted to let all our partners and supporters know that Dick has been in the hospital this last week. Since last Saturday, he has taken a dramatic turn and it appears as though the Lord is preparing to take him home. He has been released from the hospital and is coming home in hospice care today. Please keep family and ministry in prayer during this difficult time. We will be giving daily updates to this page to keep you informed. We greatly appreciate all your prayers and support. You may also visit us on our Facebook fan page. Just type in "Dick Mills Ministries." Please scroll down for more updates. - Karlene Ponte, Exec. Sec. DMM, May 23, 2012
UPDATE: Dick had some difficulties develop late yesterday and we had to take him back to the hospital. They were able to resolve the issue and in the early morning hours he came back home. He has been resting comfortably now. Betty especially wants to thank all of you for your loving responses - they are such an encouragement. Please continue your prayers and we will keep you all updated. Karlene Ponte, Exec. Sec., DMM
Thanks for visiting with us. We hope you will view this site as an important assest in your daily walk with God. Below is an article I believe you will enjoy reading. It is written by my son, David.
"A Visit From The Lord"
The word “visit usually is associated with socializing. We go to “visit” our relatives at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Friends drop in on us in order to pay us a “visit.” We go the hospital during visiting hours to see how our friends or loved ones are getting along. Our usage of the word visit invariably has a social connotation.
In Biblical usage “visit” means a lot more than dropping in on friends or relatives for friendly chit-chat. Visitation in the Hebrew language is PEQUDDAH (pek-ood-daw). Strong’s defines it as, “to oversee, mainly in an official capacity.” Young’s calls it “an inspection, a looking after.” Al Novak in his book “Hebrew Honey,” delineates visitation as “providential care, to go to anyone in kindness to see how they are. God gives life and canopies it with His favor and visits, in order to inspire.” Gesenius describes PEQUDDAH as “attending to, visiting to search, test, explore and inspect.” It also has the military connotation of a mustering or numbering of forces. Also a passing in review. An inspection to determine if the troops are ready for action. Job’s statement, “Your visitation has preserved my spirit,” has some interesting possibilities.
The Lord visits us as a doctor makes a house-call. The doctor doesn’t come to see us for social purposes. It isn’t an afternoon tea with relaxed conversing. He does come by to check us over, take our temperature, check our heart-beat, and prescribe necessary treatment. He will do all that is within his capabilities to insure that we have good health. The Lord’s visitation is like the doctor’s call. He wants to tune us up spiritually so that we can have the best of spiritual health. He is really looking out for our best interests.
Visitation is like a military inspection. The thought behind inspection is checking to see if we are properly attired for spiritual combat. In the military, the soldier wears only what is assigned him by his commander. It would be a rag-tag army if each soldier only wore what he wanted to and disregarded the other soldiers. Our commander Jesus has issued us the whole armor of God. He inspects us to see if we are wearing it. His visitation is an inspection to see of we are walking in obedience to His will for us.
Visitation is a search, test and an exploration. The Lord visits us primarily to test our reactions. The condition of our heart is vital to healthy spiritual progress. He is searching and exploring the depths of our heart. This helps us discover resentment, bitterness and unforgiveness. We could read this verse as, “Your exploring search is a preservative to my spirit.”
Visitation is providential care. Most of the modern translations consulted used the word “care” for the word “visitation.” “Your care for me preserves my spirit.” David said, “What is man that you visit him?” This verse could also read, “What is man that you care for him the way you do?” His visitation is providential care. This care watches over our progress, looks us over for improvement, prepares us for the future and ends with our perfection. Don’t fear or dread the Lord’s visitation. It’s for our good. He won’t destroy us, He will preserve us.
