Every time I read these words from Matthew 7:24 -27, I am reminded that laying a strong foundation in God’s Word is vital for enabling us to respond in a godly way to challenges of everyday life.
I am also reminded of the fact that thousands of Christians in Albania, Croatia, Serbia, Poland or Bulgaria have little or no access to Bible-based discipleship resources they can use to lay strong foundations for their spiritual lives.
Although the challenges they face vary from country to country, their situation can be best described by a statement Derek Prince made in Foundations for Christian Living: “They (these believers) have never laid a sound doctrinal foundation. Consequently, they have never been able to build a stable, successful Christian life.”
Today I am inviting you to help change this situation by praying for Christians in Eastern Europe and by sending a special gift to our DPM outreach in this region.
Many Christians in Eastern Europe need foundational Bible teaching
to help them build their lives upon God's Word.
Here are just a handful of comments from our outreach workers in this region that can help you understand why Christians in Eastern Europe need our help:
Throughout his many years of ministry, Derek Prince encouraged Christians from all walks of life to build strong foundations for their faith by studying God’s Word. He helped them to do so by creating a wealth of discipleship resources for them to use.
I know that when Christians in Eastern Europe get hold of Derek’s teaching in their language and apply it in their lives amazing transformations can happen, as the testimonies below show.
By making more of Derek’s teaching available to Christians in Eastern Europe, we can help them build a vibrant faith. That is why in 2017 we want to translate, print and distribute thousands of copies of the Foundation Series and other key titles by Derek Prince.
A Testimony from Serbia:
God Brought Derek Prince into Our Lives to Become Our Spiritual Mentor
Nenad and Biljana from Pozarevac in Serbia first came across Derek’s teaching in 1996, when they got a copy of Blessing or Curse: You Can Choose. At that time they were new believers. Reading this book changed their understanding of spiritual matters.
Over the years they listened to Derek’s teaching cassettes and read over 20 of his books. Derek’s teaching provided wonderful spiritual food for them. They consider Derek as their spiritual mentor because as Nenad put it: ‘Derek Prince, as a Bible teacher loved God not only with his heart strength, but also with his mind.’
One of the most influential books for them was Foundations for Christian Living.
Studying this book helped them to put their spiritual lives in order — because many times they felt confused and disoriented by various opinions that were not Bible based.
Nenad and Biljana are grateful to the DPM team in Serbia for making Derek’s teaching available to them and for enriching their spiritual lives.
Would you be able to send a gift of $20 or more to help
Christians in Eastern Europe lay a strong foundation for their faith?
Right now we are seeking to raise $70,000 for translating and printing in total 60,000 copies of the Foundation Series in Slovak, Croatian, Albanian, Slovenian, Moldavian and Macedonian languages.
Also, we want to raise an additional $40,000 for printing 16,000 copies of key titles by Derek Prince, including Secrets of A Prayer Warrior, Marriage Covenant, Rules of Engagement, They Shall Expel Demons, and more— in Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Serbian, Czech and Bulgarian languages.
A Testimony from Hungary:
Derek's Teaching Helped Us Increase Our Perseverance
My name is Barnabás and I live in Porcsalma, a small village on the Hungarian border, inhabited mostly by Roma people. I am a Roma man, and for the last 20 years my wife and I have been serving God by leading a small church in our village.
We studied together the Self-Study Bible Course by Derek Prince, which gave us such a Bible-knowledge we could build our houses of faith upon. Studying the Bible using this book made our faith in God get stronger.
We got appropriate guidance for how to deal with different situations based on the answers we gave to the questions from this book. Building strong foundations for our faith increased our perseverance and encouraged us to serve God and people without fear.
What your gift can make possible:
- $30 could help put a set of 10 “Foundation Series” booklets into the hands of two believers in Croatia, Albania or Slovakia.
- $70 can help put a life-changing book by Derek Prince into the hands of several pastors who can then pass on the teaching to their congregations.
- $150 can help resource a small group in a local church and give them a chance to build strong foundations for their lives.
- $700 can cover the translation cost of one of Derek's books into a new language.
It is with your help that we can continue our ministry of resourcing Christians in Eastern Europe.
Thank you so much for your support of DPM's ongoing ministry.
Yes, Warren & Brano, I would like to help Christians in the Middle East access Derek’s life-changing and inspiring Bible teaching resources.
