As you read this letter, storm winds are blowing through the Lord’s house in China, and through His church.

Christians are facing severe persecution. Church leaders are being arrested... simply for teaching God’s Word. Church buildings are being closed, even destroyed.

This is what Pastor Chen said to our DPM China team:

“I woke up one morning to discover that our church’s second WeChat channel had been permanently shut down by the Chinese government. This happened less than a month after the removal of our first channel. Hundreds of thousands of our followers lost access to Bible teaching overnight.”

WeChat is the most widely used app in China. Hundreds of millions of Chinese people use it daily. Also, many churches, like Pastor Chen’s, use WeChat to teach God’s Word and to strengthen the church.

Now, because of the government’s censorship activities pastors like Chen, and millions of Chinese Christians they serve, are unable to access Bible teaching materials on WeChat.

That’s why I am writing to you to ask if you could help today please.

Could you help provide Bible teaching by Derek Prince for pastors like Chen so they can teach their scattered congregations and help them to find strength in God during the storm?

Your gift of $30 can place an audio device loaded with Derek’s Bible teaching into the hands of a pastor or a small group leader who wants to dig deeper into God’s Word. And also to share what they learn with many others.

Thanks to the past generosity of DPM supporters like you, we have already distributed thousands of USB cards and audio devices during the pandemic and God has used them to touch many lives.

We received these words from a Christian brother from Henan province:

“I want you to know that your USBs, books, and proclamation cards are enabling us to feed our older and younger generations with God’s Word. Thank you for your loving kindness and support during these hard times.”

This is the kind of impact you can continue to make when you support our China outreach and together we can help more Christians in China to minister to those who are seeking God’s comfort and strength in the storm.

Sadly, every blast of the storm that China’s leadership is creating is part of a deliberate and coordinated plan. In 2018 China introduced new Regulations on Religious Affairs banning any “unauthorised” religious teaching not permitted by the government.

Then, last March, Christians were prohibited from posting any Christian materials online - unless they had permission from the authorities, which is highly unlikely to happen. I believe that more laws will be passed and more freedoms to worship will be curbed in the future. That is why we at DPM are doing all we can now to help Christians in China to find shelter in God’s Word and to stand firm in Jesus.

Here are two other ways you can join forces with our DPM China outreach:

  1. By giving $80 today you can ensure that 60 Chinese believers can grow spiritually during the storm by reading Derek’s books like Unshakable Hope and Entering the Presence of God.
  2. And your gift of $270 can support our digital outreach team for a full day while they help thousands of Chinese Christians online to find shelter from the storm in God’s Word.

The Lord has already raised up a strong DPM team. They are all Chinese and are skilled at breaking through the largest system of internet censorship in the world, known as the ‘Great Firewall of China’. But they need your help to continue to upload more of Derek’s teaching online and to open new digital pathways for Chinese believers to access life-changing Bible teaching resources.

If you are able, could you please send a gift to our DPM-China ministry today.

Your support is so vital for helping our brothers and sisters in China who have made the brave decision to follow Jesus during the storm.
