“Thank you for sending Derek Prince books to me; I had been asking friends to bring his books. I have been able to learn and practise fasting, prayer and intercession, and healing – especially in praying for the sick and expelling demons. In our part of the country there is so much demon possession because people are ignorant of the one true God. I have been inviting people to learn together. God is so kind that people are healed from various sicknesses and demon possession. Derek's teaching has helped many people to learn and understand biblical teaching.” —Bishal Khadka of Dolakha

Anna is studying at the Derek Prince Online Bible School. She said her journey in the Bible school for more than two years was like exploring the unknown country of life in the Spirit. She wrote: “It’s great that this course is available online. In any place and at any time, I can take my device and study. I repeat topics, reread my answers to questions or repeat key verses. It is a constant inspiration and support for regular study. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to discover the truth.
Many things I only knew at the level of knowledge, at the level of reason, and I had not matured to practical application and personal knowledge. Now I am learning, and my efforts are not in vain. You know, when you have tasted the good Word of God, you don’t want to lose such a treasure!”
