Meet David and June Dean

David and June Dean

David and June Dean are from Kings Eastbourne. David has been an elder for 10 years and full time staff for about 15 years. June is a part time infant teacher at West Rise Infant School for 21 years. It was great chatting to them as we went round Crossroads and Ebenezer.

M.M: How long have you been married?
D & J.D: 43 years

M.M: What has been the greatest challenge in ministry?
D & J.D: Balancing time, prioritizing and reassessing.

M.M: What would you say is the greatest need in your community?
D.& J.D: People need to hear the gospel.

M.M: Interesting. How would you describe your time in Zimbabwe?
D & J.D: Brilliant. Loved it. The people are great and so, so friendly. We admire how people just keep on going with so little. The faith levels are up when every day is a challenge.

M.M: What are your thoughts on Crossroads and our vision?
D & J.D: Amazing. You are trying to serve the community. The church is about reaching the community and it’s so impressive. James speaks about true religion. Your vision and heart is so great even though there is so little.

M.M: This is encouraging. Thank you. What are your thoughts on Ebenezer?
D & J.D: There are no quick fixes to poverty. People need to be trained, educated and shown business. It’s a long hard road. You must see people walk away and cry but you keep going. We commend you for that.

M.M: What is your favourite quote?
D & J.D: “Take hold of all that God has taken hold of me for.....” from Philippians.
