In 2015 the doors finally opened for Derek Prince Ministries in the Philippines – the fields are “white for harvest” (John 4:35 - ESV) in this nation. Since then we have imported several large shipments of English books from India. These are now available from Praise bookshops in the Philippines and are being freely distributed in pastors seminars and outreaches.
In the same year, DPM's Philippines Director, John Cochrane (a Kiwi) began to have Derek’s Bible teaching translated and printed. Since then, he has been able to travel and distribute Derek’s Self Study Bible Course in Tagalog to Bible Colleges and pastors’ meetings in several parts of the country. Divine Exchange and How to Pass from Curse to Blessing have now also been printed in Tagalog and these are already proving to be a huge blessing to believers whose spiritual eyes are being opened.
Light TV are broadcasting Derek’s teaching in several different formats, including his 30-minute TV programme, which is one of the highest rating programmes on the channel. Audio-visual proclamation messages and the two-minute Word from the Word devotionals in the national language, Tagalog, are also being broadcast, along with on-line seminars once a week on the topic Blessing or Curse: You Can Choose. These are all proving immensely popular.
