Ann and her husband Barry White serve the Lord together in Ireland since their marriage in 2015. Read below some of the story about Ann’s history with her late husband, and then the more recent joining in marriage and ministry with Northern Irishman Barry White.
Ann and her late husband Larry Dimond worked as Assemblies of God missionaries since 1986 and raised their two children overseas. They served 4 years in Zimbabwe, Africa planting churches and training leadership. The Dimonds journey in Ireland began in 1993 where they ministered hand-in-hand pastoring, training, and equipping.
Larry Dimond went to the arms of Jesus in October 2011 after a brief & courageous battle with cancer. Since Larry’s death, Ann continued to serve in Ireland as an ordained Assemblies of God minister. God made it clear to Ann that her calling did not end when God took Larry to heaven. She therefore continued to build on the foundation and relationships that she and Larry built across Ireland for over 19 years. Then entered Barry! God brought Barry White into Ann’s life in 2015, though Barry was not a stranger. A minister in Northern Ireland for 40 years, Barry had been friends with her late husband Larry.
Now together, Barry and Ann draw alongside pastors and leaders. They are particularly drawn to raise up the next generation of leaders. Barry and Ann train, equip, mentor and bring encouragement to local and national leadership in Ireland. Everything they “do” comes from their intimate relationship of “being” with Jesus. They are currently working in Waterford which is in the southeast region of Ireland; though they minister throughout the island, both North and South.
Ann has 2 married children and 4 beautiful grandchildren (see photo albums). They all live, serve and worship Jesus in Minnesota. Ann cherishes every time they have opportunity to be together.
Ann invites you to view this short video that shares her heart after the death of her late husband.
We look forward to when we can post a video of both Barry & Ann in the near future.
