Sri Lanka

 

Dear friends,

Over the past four years, we have seen many open doors for Derek Prince Ministries to go throughout the entire nation of Sri Lanka and reach many groups of people.

Our DPM-India Director, Elsie, writes…. As we send out this letter, Sri Lanka is in a chaotic situation.  While everything seems calm on the surface, the nation is facing a political and ethnic crisis.  The old forces are trying to make their way back into power while there are new ethnic tensions between different groups.  In this condition, we believe it is the responsibility of the Church to arise in its God-given position and to take the authority over the forces of darkness trying to cover the nation once again.  Stability in a nation is vital for the spread of the Gospel.

TRANSFORMATION THROUGH DEREK’S TEACHING

In 2018, we trained 80 pastors and leaders to be “teachers of teachers” through 12 of Derek’s most important teachings.  And, thanks to your faithful support, we were able to leave them all with vital resources in the form of Derek’s books and SD cards containing 30 of Derek’s audio or video messages for continued study and growth. A pastor, who has been a regular attendee of our conferences in Negombo, testified of how the teaching of God’s Word through Derek Prince material has brought a transformation in his personal life and ministry.  His church has grown and he has seen an expansion of his territories.  These leaders have now been equipped to go out and teach their people, the life changing truth of God’s Word.

We also reached into the farthest parts of Sri Lanka, particularly into places that are Buddhist strongholds.  Some of these mission trips were dangerous, but it resulted in us being able to reach many of the most isolated groups of Christians in the nation and strengthen and encourage them through the preaching of the Word and the Derek Prince resources we left behind.  One lady received a dramatic deliverance from demons after being guided by a pastor who had received Derek’s teaching through the They Shall Expel Demons book.

WHAT’S AHEAD IN 2019?

In the threatening situation that exists in Sri Lanka, there is a real need for greater understanding of the spiritual realm and for the believers to take their position in a battle that extends beyond the realm of the natural.

For this reason, we need to quickly print several of Derek’s books, focusing on “the cross” and “spiritual warfare” and  to reprint “Life Changing Spiritual Power” in Sinhala and Tamil.

Unfortunately, most believers are looking for material blessings and their only desire in the spiritual realm is “new experiences”.  Many forget that they have a “God-given responsibility” as watchmen over their nation.  So, this is where DPM is stepping in with this teaching and encouraging both pastors and leaders, as well as the Church beyond, to understand their call to be “the salt and the light.”

We would also like to provide 1,000 pastors and leaders with an SD card containing many of Derek’s audio teachings. These projects together will cost NZ$17,400.  Would you be able to partner with us in this project, please?
