October 5 - Vietnam

  • Over 800 of Derek’s Vietnamese-language books (19 titles) were sent to a book festival for attendees to purchase. Each person was also given three free proclamation cards. Pray that these resources will bless them and that many will visit our website to obtain more of the free teaching materials.

Outreach Reports

  • DPM Coordinator Pastor 'D' visited two tribes in Vietnam and distributed Derek’s books to their leaders. Bible students from seven tribes were also given several books that they use as their textbooks. Many lives have been changed. One student, who was addicted to gaming for four years, was set free by the power of God.
  • A second pastors’ seminar was held by Pastor 'D' for 60 pastors and home group leaders. The theme was Pastoral Ministry and Family and included segments on leading groups and discipling new believers using the Self-Study Bible Course. About 15 leaders received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues. A few others received healing. One pastor said: "Thank you for praying and humbly teaching us precious lessons on families and discipleship. We desperately needed this for discipling new believers. Many of us did not know how and did not have the tools to help them."
  • DPM Coordinator Pastor 'A' and her team held a seminar in Di Linh district for 80 people. The teaching was from Through Repentance to Faith, Extravagant Love and Father God, and copies were given to everyone. They were greatly blessed by the teaching and testimonies.

October 6 - China

Prison Testimonies - United States

"On behalf of the Chaplain Services of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), I want to thank you for the resources that were donated by DPM this year. Through the materials, we were able to assist those who have expressed a desire to learn and grow in their faith. One of the greatest gifts we can give is God’s Word, and your contribution made this possible.

Please also know how important your donations have been during these challenging times. We have had limited resources since Covid began, and the residents’ main leisure activity has been to read. Again, thank you for your efforts to impact the prison population of this county’s Detention Center Central. You are such an encouragement to them as well as our staff and have greatly assisted us in demonstrating the Spirit of God’s love. I pray that God will bless your staff as well as your donors for making this possible."

– Torya Allen, Chaplain Services Administrative Asst., MCSO, North Carolina

"I have benefited spiritually through the book you sent me here in prison. I recently felt I should tithe to DPM. It will be in the form of stamps. My first contribution is 10 stamps. I know it’s not much, but I am so blessed to receive your material. Please keep me in your prayers." – Michael, CA
