Prayer Focus 05/11/2023 - 11/11/2023
- Derek’s book, The Key to the Middle East, is now available in Japanese. Pray for many to download it from the Japanese-language website and learn its vital truths
- The China team labours long and hard to reach mainland China’s church leaders with audio, video, and books from our secure download centre, which bypasses the firewall China has erected. Derek's book God is a Matchmaker is now being prepared as an audiobook, and a bilingual e-magazine provides teaching and devotionals. Pray for security for the team and for the church leaders inside China to be able to download this material.
Praise Reports - China
- Our team has made Derek’s Chinese material available on YouTube for those inside and outside China. Although it can be difficult, about 170 video clips are now accessible on YouTube and websites for believers in China. Our new YouTube channel for overseas Chinese, which began in April, has already had more than 30,300 views and more than 900 subscribers!
Pray for God’s protection and anointing upon Coordinator, Pastor “D”, as he travels to minister in the Quang Ngai and Quang Tri Provinces during the last week of November. He will be teaching Bible school teachers and students and distributing Derek’s books, The Divine Exchange and God’s Medicine Bottle.
- Our team is partnering with local churches to hold evangelistic outreaches for 500 to 1000 people in five locations, along with an outreach for 4,000 people in Phnom Penh. Proclamation cards and five of Derek’s booklet titles will be distributed. Pray for many to come to Christ and for the material given away to bring understanding of God’s Word.
Outreach Reports - Cambodia
- Director Mr. Huy Ly reports: “A pastors’ seminar was held in Siem Reap, for 32 pastors from different denominations. They needed the revelation of Christ to remove their burdens and self-condemnation. After discussing Fatherhood, one pastor opened up about his family challenges. Faced with financial difficulties and rebellious children, he felt lost. Yet, seeing the Lord as the Heavenly Father transformed him. His family life improved, and they now serve the Lord together in church.”
- A seminar for 45 pastors took place in Banteay Meanchey Province, eight hours from Phnom Penh. Huy's team covered topics from You Matter to God to Through Repentance to Faith. Everyone received Derek’s materials. A former Seventh Day Adventist Church pastor was deeply moved by Derek’s book By Grace Alone that mirrored his struggles with upholding the law and the feeling of never being good enough. After leaving church in exhaustion, an invitation led him to grasp God’s grace, realizing blessings were not about his efforts but God's grace. This understanding gave him peace in the Lord Jesus Christ’s finished work.
November 9—New Zealand
- Derek's 14-day series, Praying for the Government, aired on two nationwide radio networks, and the Foundational Truths for Christian Living series is set to broadcast. Pray for many to be blessed by these devotionals and to visit our website to find more free teaching.
- Pray for God’s anointing and protection upon the person running our social media campaign to draw people to our Indonesia website. Our desire is for hundreds of thousands of Indonesian believers to visit the website and download Derek’s free Indonesian material.
From November 10–12, Directors Fanel and Monica, with their local church, are holding meetings on the topic of depression. Pray for the team and for the Holy Spirit to open hearts and give understanding so that many will be delivered and receive hope in God, His promises, and His Word.
