Testimony

I received an email from a Japanese man who said his sister had started going to a church that uses Derek’s teachings, but the pastor denies the Trinity. He was worried that his sister might get a wrong impression of the Gospel, so he asked if there are clear teachings of the Trinity in Derek’s messages. I suggested he read The Holy Spirit in You and promised to pray for his sister. Several weeks later, he wrote again and said his sister has taken this teaching to heart and has stepped away from the heretical teaching she heard. Praise the Lord for the impact of Derek’s teaching. And let’s continue to pray for all those people who also are in need of solid biblical teaching!”

Testimony

Brother S. J. Berchmann is a famous Tamil gospel songwriter, singer and preacher who also leads a network of churches. Some years ago, he requested Derek’s book, The Power of Proclamation, in Tamil. Last month, India Directors, Elsie and Danny, met him and made an amazing discovery. Elsie shares:

  • “I was telling him about the ministry we are doing through church and DPM, and it suddenly occurred to me that it would be good if he could write a song based on Derek’s proclamation about the Power of the Blood, and sing it. When I suggested it to him, he told me something that shocked me – he has written and published several hundred songs, based on every proclamation in the book! To think that people have been singing these songs in Tamil churches throughout Tamil Nadu and the world was amazing. It made me think that this is one more of the ways that God’s promise to Derek about ‘the mighty ocean’ is being fulfilled!”

Testimonies

Pastor Stemmet took a six-week trip to reach the Kalahari Desert area of South Africa that borders on Botswana and Namibia. He met two coloured ladies outside the historical Catholic Church at Pella, made up of about 2500 people, mostly San Bushmen. He had just one Foundations book in Afrikaans and offered it to them to have a look, saying he would be back shortly. He told them if they wanted to keep it, they must promise to read it. When he got back, they were both crying with joy at what they had read in that short time. He let them keep the book.

Impact Radio Listeners

  • “The teachings of Derek have made a remarkable impact in my life in many ways. I can't afford to miss them on Impact Radio every day. My prayer life also drastically changed.

My faith is more anchored due to how the teachings have touched my life.” —Listener in Pretoria, South Africa
  • “I have been listening for four years. I had dropped off my husband for a flight he needed to catch, and as I drove home, Impact Radio was on, and teaching came up on the ''Good Shepherd." I knew I had encountered a teacher who would minister the Word of God to me during my daily devotions. That has never changed. I am truly grateful to God for a teacher who could make such a huge impact and for having a team who keeps the radio ministry going. —Josephine D.
  • “I have been listening for many years to Derek’s teachings. I lived in a foreign country for a short period of time, and I couldn’t have done it without God.
