Keeping DPM in Prayer

March 24th - March 30th 
 

 

March 24—Norway

  • Pray for more mission-minded partners to invest in DPM’s work in China, India/Asia, the Middle East, Russia and Eastern Europe.
  • Pray for a new translator to work on more books by Derek in Norwegian.

 

March 25—South Africa

An event was held in December in Cape Town by the ICEJ (International Christian Embassy Jerusalem) on the topic, “Why Israel?” Another similar event was held in February. More of the Why Israel? booklets (500) were printed for distribution in Cape Town. Many CDs and DVDs on this topic were also distributed. There is a great need and demand for this teaching.
  • Pray for these events to impact the nation and bring awareness of Israel and her biblical prophetic destiny and the Church’s responsibility to Israel in these days. Decisions are being made against Israel in this nation, so this message needs to be heard before upcoming elections.
  • Pray for many to reach out to the Jewish people and for the Church to take responsibility to comfort and support Israel.  
Praise & Thanksgiving:
  • We praise God for our generous donors, prayer supporters, staff and board members who serve DPM–South Africa, which continues to reach 13 African countries with Derek’s teaching.

 

March 26—Turkey

The Turkish website has been successfully launched, and there are new visitors daily. Pray for Turkish readers and viewers who find it to be touched with a deep thirst for more of Derek's Bible teaching.
Praise & Thanksgiving: Persian Gulf Region
  • One of the most famous online radio channels in the Middle East, “Better Life Radio,” started broadcasting Derek’s daily devotional the first of January.
  • Kingdom Satellite also started broadcasting Derek’s videos weekly since the first of the year.
  • In January, we sent 25 SD cards loaded with Derek's teaching to Yemen, where we trust God will use them to encourage believers there whose lives are difficult.

 

March 27—Philippines

  • Derek’s two-minute Word from the Word programs are airing on radio in Mindinao, in the south.  Pray for many to listen and be blessed by these messages. 
  • Director John Cochrane recently spoke in General Santos City to the leaders of the 5,000-member church of Manny Pacquiao, a famous boxer and senator. He also spoke at several other pastors’ meetings. Pray that, as a result, DPM’s work will become more widely known and its outreach increased, including bringing more visitors to the DPM website. 
Praise & Thanksgiving:
Last December, we gave Derek’s books in the Tagalog language—The Divine Exchange, How to Pass from Curse to Blessing and the Self-Study Bible Course—to 50 Bible college graduates and pastors. These books will be a great tool for them.

 

March 28—United States/Hispanic Outreach

  • Pray for wisdom, good health and protection for those translating and voicing Derek’s teaching into Spanish.
  • The next luncheon for local Hispanic leaders in Charlotte, North Carolina, will be held April 4. Pray for the Lord’s presence over this event and that it will open new doors for Derek’s material.

 

March 29—Albania

  • Pray for a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit for church leaders so they are empowered to reach a new generation for Christ that will take the Albanian church into its God-ordained destiny.
  • Pray for protection, wisdom and guidance for Aurora (translator) and Skerdi (proof-reader) as they continue to work on new titles.
  • Pray for many new doors to open for Derek’s teaching.

 

March 30—Tanzania

  • Pray for the translators and printers to produce quality work and meet their project deadlines.
  • Pray for Derek’s material to be used wisely to equip, edify, and teach and to bear good fruit.
  • Rural and peripheral districts are accepting the Gospel enthusiastically. This is in its infancy, so pray for more finances, material and needed personnel to extend the reach of Derek’s teaching.
  • Pray that 2019 will be another milestone year for DPM’s work in Tanzania.
Praise & Thanksgiving:
We thank God for all that was accomplished in 2018:
  • We launched our first prison services at Arusha and Moshi Central Prisons, with encouraging feedback.
  • We now have contact points in Tanzania from which to build.
  • We began and maintained good distribution of material and feedback in regional zones, particularly the Lake Victoria, Northern and Central Zones.
  • Rural and peripheral districts are accepting the Gospel enthusiastically.
