Testimony – Nepal

  • “I have been serving the Lord in my area for a couple of years. Somehow God led me to the teaching of Derek Prince while I was in Kathmandu for three months. I was so overwhelmed to learn from Derek's teaching. I have been teaching right from Derek's books ‘Foundations for Life’, ‘The Holy Spirit in You’ and the ‘Self-Study Bible Course’. Other pastors have borrowed these books. Derek's teaching is very biblical and easy to understand; that is why most of the people who read one of Derek’s books like to read more of his material.” —Pastor Bhupendra Karki, West Nepal.

October 6—China

  • Sister Yi-yen began our online course recently and wrote: “I am so happy I have registered for the online course of Ye Guang Ming (Derek Prince). It is really amazing that I still can find spiritual bread from your websites since many Christian videos and articles have been removed from different platforms in China since the beginning of last year. Please continue with this good work, we really need it.” The 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party has seen more blocking of Christian materials online. Pray for open doors in China to supply God’s people with His Word.

October 7—Australia

  • Pray for more of the people who receive our communications or follow us on social media to be gripped by our vision to “reach the unreached and teach the untaught” with Derek’s Bible teaching and to become supporters.

It is a 16-hour one-way trip, but we were able to send a large amount of Derek’s teaching in Portuguese that included copies of the Self-Study Bible Course, Foundations DVD sets, Teaching letters and Proclamation Cards.

  • Another conference (as shared below) is planned for the fall, and resources and trained staff are needed. Pray for the Lord’s blessing on this gathering and for every need to be met.

Praise Report – Armenia

  • We praise God for the impact of Derek’s book Why Bad Things Happen to God's People. As a result of the recent war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, some 4,000 mothers lost their sons, and they were constantly tormented by the question: "Why has this happened to me?" Our workers in Armenia organised a conference for these mothers. Sophie, whose son had been killed, had torn her Bible into pieces as she was tormented by the same question. When they gave her the book at the conference, initially she did not want to take it, but eventually she did. Later, she contacted a worker, saying she had found answers for many of her questions, regained her fellowship with God, and received the comfort of the Holy Spirit. There are thousands of mothers like Sophie in Armenia today, to whom DPM provides Derek's material.

October 31—Azerbaijan

  • Derek’s teaching series, The Roman Pilgrimage, is being translated into Azeri. Pray for a powerful, solid translation and for this teaching to be a blessing to Christians in this predominantly Islamic country.

Testimony – Azerbaijan

  • Derek’s online teaching is available on YouTube and is reaching millions of people. An Azeri woman shared that she listens to many of Derek’s teachings in Russian: “Usually I listen to each lesson from Derek Prince about six times. Recently, I listened to his teaching on ‘True and False Church’ and ‘They Shall Expel Demons’. To tell you the truth, I was shocked to learn these teachings after thirty years; I had received teachings of a false Gospel. God is teaching me now and changing my life; I am very grateful for that. I know that the teaching of Derek Prince is truthful and biblical.”
