Dear Friend,

I’m sure you will agree that the days we are living in are both challenging and exciting. Challenging due to Covid-19 and the many difficulties and changes that has brought with it, yet exciting, because the Lord is moving mightily in the midst of it to bring transformation to so many lives.

FAITH IS STRENGTHENED IN CAMBODIA

One of those lives transformed is Kong Chanmakara. Kong works in a community which provides a feeding programme to slum children.

Kong says, “I am so blessed and get a lot of revelation from each Derek Prince book I read. The Divine Exchange booklet showed me so much about God’s love and what He has done on the cross for me. Jesus took all the bad things and curses from my life and gave me back a new wonderful life in Him. The other book, Authority and Power of God’s Word, also gives me many answers to questions that I had in the past; this book tells me where the Word is from, who the Word is, and why we need God’s Word in our heart and life. Derek’s books really strengthen my faith and the right belief in Jesus Christ. I use Derek’s teaching in my church’s youth fellowship and other events in the slum where I serve every day.”

We would like to say “thank you” for your generous giving to our work in south east Asia over the past year; it’s through your generosity that enables people like Kong to grow in his relationship with the Lord and come to maturity so that he can teach and disciple others.

In the year ahead we need to reprint over 20 important books for free distribution at seminars and outreaches. Titles needing to be printed include By Grace Alone; Called to Conquer; The Benefits of Redemption; Praying for the Government; Self Study Bible Course; Spiritual Warfare; What’s So Important About the Cross?; You Matter to God and others.

The average cost to print a small booklet of 50 pages in Cambodia is just $0.70 cents, and a larger book of 150 pages costs $1.40. Your donation of $25, $50, $100 or more can therefore go a long way in helping to provide these much-needed books for pastors, leaders and Christian workers in Cambodia. Would you please prayerfully consider helping us continue to make Derek’s teaching available?

FEEDING THE SPIRITUALLY HUNGRY IN VIETNAM

Due to the pandemic, our two coordinators in Vietnam haven’t been able to hold as many seminars as previously, but we are pleased to advise of several recent seminars held: 

  • A two-day seminar in Quang Ngai province (south east Vietnam) for 12 tribal pastors and leaders, and 85 church members from nine local churches. Derek’s books, Divine Exchange and God’s Medicine Bottle were freely distributed to attendees.
  • Derek’s books have also recently been freely distributed to 30 pastors and leaders at 22 local churches who are undertaking leadership training, and to 50 pastors and leaders at a seminar in Hanoi who are taking a counselling course.
  • Two seminars have been held for men on From Repentance to Faith and Immersion in the Spirit and two for women on The Three Most Powerful Words, Divine Exchange and Self Study Bible Course.
  • Self Study Bible Course is being used to teach and train local church leaders. One man has been very motivated after using and applying the teaching contained in this book and consequently many from a highlands tribal group have been reached by him.

Pastor T., of the home church network in central Vietnam wrote saying, “Thank you so much for the DPM books and seminars; my ministry and I feel the anointing of the Holy Spirit in reading and studying these books. They are very helpful, edifying, life-changing books. We are using them in our Bible schools and distributing them to leaders of different denominations. Thank you for giving us a “treasure”. May God bless you greatly.”

And pastor N. of the AOG church wrote, “I am in debt to DPM for these wonderful books. The more I read, the more fire I feel and the more I love the Word.”

These seminars are life-changing – not only for the attendees, but for those they are then equipped to teach. The aim is to hold eight seminars in the next 12 months and the cost to do so is relatively low compared with the huge benefits gained:

  • NZ$395 enables a seminar to be held for 30-40 pastors and leaders in Vietnam
  • NZ$515 covers the cost of printing 1,000 booklets in Vietnamese.

Our work in Myanmar is held up due to the military coup and Covid-19 restrictions, so please pray for protection for our team there, along with their families.
