Testimony - UK Prison Outreach
A chaplain shared comments from an inmate who completed the 20-week Bible programme (Self-Study Bible Course).
“I have become religiously astute and more aware of my actions and words, as it says in the Bible that your mouth is full of what is in your heart. It encouraged me to live a Christian life because as it says in the Bible, judgement will come upon us like a thief and I want eternal life, forever being happy with no regrets.”
The chaplain added: “This blew me away today. I must add that officers have commented on his turnaround. I thank God for your faithfulness and the materials you have blessed us with to help change the young men here.”
Over 800,000 copies of Derek’s Nepali books have been printed, and thousands of copies of 50 titles are being reprinted. Pray for this to go smoothly, for protection over their distribution, and for thousands of Nepali pastors and believers to be encouraged by the books.
- Pray for God’s anointing, healing, and protection upon our new co-worker, Rolan, in Jakarta, who is voicing and recording Derek’s 365 daily devotionals into Indonesian. Pray for protection also for his wife and two teenagers. He has faced attack against his health since starting this work.
- Pray for Christian radio stations in Indonesia to be willing to play Derek’s daily devotional.
- Pray for good health and strength for our translator, “Yvonne”, as she translates Derek’s teaching into Japanese.
- Pray for clarity on God’s strategies for reaching the Japanese people with Derek’s Bible teaching.
November 11— Australia
Peter and Katie Dunstan are partnering with us to minister to our First Nation people and distribute Derek’s teaching. Pray for good health and protection for them as they travel around Australia.
Testimony – Australia
Peter and Katie shared this testimony after a recent trip to the First Nation people in Australia:
“We met a man in critical condition at a Medical Centre which acts as a hospital. He was suffering from a fever caused by an infection, the result of complications after a recent heart triple bypass. The medical team was making plans to fly him from Elcho Island (of indigenous people in the northeast) to Darwin Hospital to receive urgent medical treatment. Fifteen family members were around his bedside and outside the facility. An Elder of the Galiwin’ku people took us to lay hands on him and pray. The man and family were very grateful to receive Derek’s book, God’s Medicine Bottle. We called the next day to see what course of action was taken. They gratefully informed us that the man was healed. He had been discharged and gone home! The family is looking forward to reading and sharing their thoughts on the book.”
Pray that Derek’s teaching on social media, the website and YouTube will reach tens of thousands of people here, strengthen their faith and deepen their knowledge of God’s Word.
Outreach Report – Cambodia
Teaching seminars were held for 83 pastors in two provinces, based on Derek’s books Immersion in the Spirit, Resurrection of the Body and By Grace Alone. Cambodian pastors in different denominations are at risk of receiving incorrect teaching, so these seminars were very timely.
