UPDATE FROM DPM-INDONESIA January 2019
DPM-Indonesia Director, Marcel, has been very busy over recent months travelling around different parts of Indonesia to teach and minister to many hundreds of pastors and Christian leaders using Derek’s teaching. Marcel reports:
I recently had several opportunities to teach and minister:
- At an Indonesia Bethel Church in Sentani (Papua, Indonesia), using Derek’s teaching Life’s Bitter Pool, where many were touched by the Holy Spirit. I am now working on setting up a pastors meeting and to send a copy of each of Derek’s Indonesian books to the pastors here.
- At Biak and Ansus in Papua. It was a seven-hour boat trip to Ansus, where there are about 10 churches. They require much good Bible training, so a return trip will be made.
- At the Discipleship Training School at YWAM, where I taught on sin, repentance and forgiveness. The students experienced great deliverance (most had given their lives to the Lord just four weeks previously).
- Several months ago I sent 300 copies each of Called to Conquer and The Power of Proclamation to a pastor in Solo, whose ministry is to pastors. He advises me the books were a real blessing to all recipients.
An Indonesian pastor living in Australia made a trip to Indonesia in October 2018 and distributed packs of Derek’s books
to several hundred pastors in east and central Java. The books were received with much joy...
Marcel will also be holding seminars in central and east Java, and west Papua, during February and March. Derek’s teaching is helping to make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of people in Indonesia. Thank you for your prayers and support to help make this happen!

Indonesia is the largest Muslim nation in the world with a population of 242 million, and it is the desire of our hearts to see God’s transforming Word go out to as many people as possible to bring understanding about eternal life, and also to bring more revelation and maturity to the Body of Christ. 46 of Derek’s book have now been translated and published in the Indonesian language, with over 220,000 copies printed.
We have now translated 140 of Derek’s radio messages from Keys to Successful Living into Indonesian, which you can listen to on our DPM app here. The programme is broadcast on 22 radio stations in 18 major cities across Indonesia, potentially reaching 23 million people. The English version of the programme has been broadcast for around 16 years. Derek’s radio programme is also being placed on audio devices for sending out. We also hold conferences and seminars for Pastors, Elders and missionaries where we use Derek’s teaching to teach and encourage those in leadership. Derek’s books are freely distributed which have been a real blessing to those attending.
