Young People Are Hungry for Bible Teaching in Vietnam

Dear Friend,

Covid-19 has caused massive disruption across the globe this year, including the south east Asian nations which Derek Prince Ministries is working in. When the pandemic began spreading throughout Vietnam, all church activities, seminars and outreaches came to an abrupt stop.

However, thanks to today’s technology, Bible teaching and ministry continues – even if it means doing things a little differently. One of our Vietnam coordinators, Pastor A., from Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon), holds weekly online church services and Bible studies. One of these Bible studies recently focused on the cross and all that the Lord accomplished for us by His sacrifice. This was followed up with each church member being given a copy of Derek’s book The Divine Exchange (Vietnamese) so that everyone could read it and apply the teaching in their own lives.

Pastor A. was also able to move the church to a new and more spacious building. At the church opening ceremony, gifts were given out, together with a set of Derek’s books.

Meanwhile in Da Nang (central Vietnam), our other DPM- Vietnam coordinator, Pastor D., has been able to hold several teaching seminars in between lockdowns.

With the main religion in Vietnam being Buddhism, coupled with a lack of sound Bible teaching resources available, these seminars have been both essential and also very popular. Derek’s teaching on How to Pass from Curse to Blessing (Vietnamese) has been one of the main topics taught, resulting in many people being set free from curses. At one of these teaching seminars, the Lord powerfully touched two men who came from a mountain tribe. After the seminar they returned to their village and planted three churches amongst their tribe. We have been told that the new churches are oppressed, but they continue to keep their new faith!

Spiritual Warfare and How to Pass from Curse to Blessing are life-changing books. They changed my perspective about these facts in the Bible and I believe applying these truths will set me free so I can live the victorious life that God intended for me. Thank you so much.” - N.T.L.Q Evangelist CMA, Central Vietnam

Derek’s Self Study Bible Course is also being used in a number of different churches across the country to disciple their believers.

Pastor D.H. Home Churches Movement, North Vietnam, contacted DPM and said:

“Thanks a lot for the DPM books. These have blessed me and our church so much. I like them all, especially the Self Study Bible Course. We use it as text book in our church. It is wonderful material to disciple believers. The other one is How to Pass from Curse to Blessing. The truth in this book is a must for everyone who wants to live a blessed life. Once again, I am so thankful to DPM. I am waiting for more DPM books. May God bless you.”

This year, thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we have been able to continue to translate and print Derek’s teaching into Vietnamese. In total, our DPM team has now been able to translate and print 28 books and 55 Teaching Letters, and these can also be freely downloaded from the DPM Vietnam website https://vi.dpmvietnam.org/ 

The demand for Derek’s Bible teaching in Vietnam is now growing so much that in 2021 we need to continue printing his life-changing books while we still have an open door to do so as every single DPM book printed requires Vietnamese Government approval. So far only two have been rejected, so we plan to have as many books as possible printed now while we can.

Our budget for Derek Prince Missions in Vietnam for 2021 is NZ$60,500 so we would ask if you could please prayerfully consider partnering with us once again to enable us to continue impacting this Buddhist nation and freely providing these spiritually hungry people with Derek’s life-changing Bible teaching.

Thank you so much for whatever amount you can invest in this open harvest field.

God's blessings,

Warren Smith, Regional Director, Asia/Pacific
