December 1—Croatia

Pray for God’s protection and encouragement for all who are involved with DPM in Croatia.

Pray for the Lord’s favor with church leaders in Croatia concerning new books and that through the churches even more people can be reached with Derek’s teachings. 


New books by Derek have been a great encouragement to Croatian believers. We now have 27 Croatian books available that the Lord is using to pour out His grace and blessings to the Body of Christ here.

Praise and Thanksgiving

. . . be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:18b–20

Botswana/Namibia/South Africa—Isabel Surgeon

  • It is exciting to see new doors opening for Derek’s teaching in places that have never even heard the gospel! The Kalahari San Bushmen live in an area of northwest Botswana, part of east Namibia and the Northern Cape of South Africa. There is a population of 100,000 who are nomadic. Co-worker Martin Erasmus, a South African, has been working among them for the past five years. We have supplied him with transcripts to do translation into the Kalahari San language, and then voicing will be done onto CDs for radio broadcasting. The messages will also be loaded onto Megavoice players. The Tswana DVD series “Laying the Foundations” has already been taken by Martin to show the San Bushmen.

Bulgaria—Iskra Nacheva

  • We thank the Lord and all those who were involved in the printing projects for this year, as well as prayer and financial support and encouragement. All are vital to us here.

Canada—Bob Yeo

  • We were able to send 500 copies of the booklet, Will You Intercede? to a conference in October held by “Intercede international.” We are grateful for this opportunity and hope it will open more doors for us to share Derek’s material.

China—Ross Paterson

  • Nine new titles are being translated and published in Taiwan. There is a new interest in Derek’s teaching, and the China team gets free translations of high quality to distribute in China.
  • We are thankful that our team inside China is able to continue distributing Derek’s material to hungry believers, although in some areas, there is a clampdown on Christians and the Church. 

Croatia—Damir & Irene Blazic

  • New books by Derek have been a great encouragement to Croatian believers. We now have 27 Croatian books available that the Lord is using to pour out His grace and blessings to the Body of Christ here.   

East Africa—Neil Cornick, Isabel Surgeon, Warren Smith

  • Tens of thousands of people are coming to faith across East Africa, as we are hearing from ministries that work with us. We have the privilege of supplying Derek's teaching to help establish them in the Lord. Pray for this move of the Lord to continue and reach other parts of Africa.
  • We continue to get good reports about the impact of the book, Life-Changing Spiritual Power. 

Egypt—Neil Cornick

 France—René de Groot

  • A well-known Christian in Chad who has held some important positions (including Secretary of State for Finances and Economy) has ordered a large number of French books and intends to distribute them among fellow Christians (some of them also in places of authority). We praise God for this opportunity to provide Derek’s teaching for leaders and others in this nation,
  • We had a good response to our request for funds for special reprints and were able to cover the cost of 10,000 Euros without any problem!
  • Another shipment of 2,500 books was sent to various Bible Schools in Kinshasha, Democratic Republic of Congo. Each book is often shared and read by several people.
  • On November 2, we celebrate 20 years of Derek Prince Ministries in France. We are so grateful for everything God has done and for His infinite faithfulness! 

India—Elsie & Danny

  • On August 14, a centenary celebration of Derek’s birth was held at St John’s Anglican Church, Bangalore (where Derek was christened as a baby). It was a great success. Glowing tributes were paid to Derek by senior Indian pastors who also told how God had influenced many lives through his teaching. A pastor who has the largest Malayalam congregation in Asia was very clear in explaining how the Blessing or Curse message had revolutionized his deliverance ministry. Almost 200 leaders from all over India attended the two-day conference organized to coincide with the Centenary. Ross Paterson, DPM–China Director, was the speaker and challenged leaders and lay people alike to rise up for the Kingdom.  


  • During August, we gave out 300 copies of Derek’s book, Life-Changing Spiritual Power, to pastors and Bible school students in East Indonesia. They were very excited to receive this material.

Iraq/Gulf Region—Neil Cornick

  • We now have the first translation of Blessings and Curses (the abridged version) in Sorani. Our new translator has also dubbed two of Derek’s video messages into Sorani.
  • A large shipment of Arabic and Farsi books has arrived in Erbil for distribution both locally and to other countries in this region. 

Madagascar—Isabel Surgeon

  • Co-workers Dries and Valerie Du Plessis live in west Madagascar and have been missionaries there for 20 years. They are thankful the Lord sent them a lady who speaks English and French and will be a great help to them with ongoing Malagasy translation and editing.
  • The Will You Intercede? booklet and Rediscovering God’s Church book have been translated and printed. 
  • Written material will also be voiced onto CDs in Dries’ home studio. We thank the kind donor in Norway for making this possible. 

Malaysia—Liman and Sai Peng

  • We recently gave away 120 copies of FONDASI (Foundations for Life) in Indonesian to pastors and lay leaders who came to Kuala Lumpur to attend an International Prayer Summit. The 250 leaders who attended, along with members of their congregations, are from the interiors of Sabah and Sarawak. It was a privilege to meet and be with them and discuss their needs for Christian books and materials. 

Mongolia—Ross Paterson

  • The Mongolian team excitedly reported: “God has blessed DPM’s significant work among the Mongols. The Derek Prince Mongolian Website is now online. The Android and IOS Apps of Derek’s teaching in Mongolian are also now available for Smart phone users.”  We praise the Lord for the dedicated Mongolian team and the availability of Derek’s materials to Mongolian believers.


  • We were recently able to give out 1,100 books to 350 pastors and other believers at a conference in Mandalay, the second largest city in Myanmar.

Nepal—Gopaljee Adhikari

  • On August 14, we commemorated the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Derek Prince by holding a one-day seminar where we shared about Derek’s life history and his teaching. 
  • During August/September a training seminar was held in central Nepal. Speakers came from Canada, Dubai, India and the United States. We freely distributed copies of Self-Study Bible Course and Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting to 200 attendees and are told that 70 percent of them received the baptism in the Holy Spirit while there!
  • Testimony received from a pastor:
    • I thank Derek Prince Ministries for providing Derek’s books for our church. I have been greatly blessed by his teaching. Now our believers and others also can read this great teaching. The pastors around this area crave his books, and Brother Gopaljee very kindly provided many books, including Declaring God’s Word, Life-Changing Spiritual Power, Self-Study Bible Course and Foundations for Life. Derek’s teaching penetrates the heart and mind. We are so fortunate to have his teaching in the Nepali language. Thank you, Derek Prince Ministries.

Netherlands—Ivar van der Sterre

  • We have a growing number of subscribers and many good responses to our Daily Devotional (emails). Nearly 3,000 people are receiving “bite-size” teachings (currently from Living as Salt and Light.)
  • In recent weeks, we shipped out nearly 200 copies of Prophetic Guide to the End Times and Surviving the Last Days in connection with our latest I-course: “Living in the End Times.” We thank God for how timely it is and the large number who have enrolled (well over 100 at last count). Europe is under great spiritual pressure, and with nearly a million Syrian refugees so far (about 5,000 in Holland), this course exhorts God’s people to walk prayerfully in His plans.
  • We are grateful for several volunteers who promote Derek’s teaching and for opportunities to supply churches with Derek’s materials.
  • We have a steady request for teaching and preaching in churches on topics such as: Gifts of the Spirit, God’s Father Heart, and The Marriage Covenant. 

Norway—Sverre Kristoffersen

  • We praise the Lord for new workers in Sweden who are helping us with Swedish translations.
  • We also have a printing company in Poland that will help us start producing digital books in the coming months. This will give us the opportunity to print as we go along and not produce more than we need. 

Pakistan—James and Elizabeth

  • James recently visited Multan in central Pakistan, a spiritually difficult city, to speak at two church services in St. Mary’s Cathedral and a leaders’ gathering. The messages were on the Holy Spirit and the teaching from How to Pass from Curse to Blessing. Upon the altar call, 18 people gave their lives to the Lord, and almost everyone raised their hand when asked who would like prayer for release from the curse. The congregation testified this was the most unique teaching they had ever heard! Copies of each of Derek’s Urdu books were donated to the Diocese library. 
  • While in Multan, James spoke at the Solid Rock Bible School. This was a great opportunity to provide the 11 new graduates and faculty members with Derek’s books and CDs.
  • Three outreaches were also held in Central Punjab. The teams gave out Praying for the Government; Divine Exchange; Expelling Demons, Life-Changing Spiritual Power and other books to Christians and non-Christians. 

Philippines—John Cochrane

  • Self-Study Bible Course has now been published in the national Tagalog language!
  • We praise God that the Christian TV station, New Hope TV, will be broadcasting Derek’s programs from General Santos City in the south. 

 Solomon Islands—Tele Bartlett

  • In September, Coordinator Hudson had a second opportunity through Youth@Work to teach 200 young people from Divine Exchange and Blessing or Curse: You Can Choose. We are grateful for this, given that young people are the largest and most influential group at this time in this nation. 
  • God is doing great things through our prison ministry. The inmates at Auki Prison are very blessed by the Self Study Bible Course book. Ten inmates are graduating, and a good number of them gave their lives to the Lord. 

South Africa—Isabel Surgeon

  • The Xhosa language Life-Changing Spiritual Power book is nearing completion. The translator, Mzi, has been deeply moved by Derek’s teaching and is so grateful the Lord connected him with us. He wrote, “The Holy Spirit filled me with inexplicable joy early this morning as I was revising the text I’m translating. A flood of tears poured out without ceasing. It was a wonderful experience.” (Mzi was a professional boxer and has written four plays, two novels and a book of poetry that are unpublished! He has been invited to Europe to present his work, and his second book of poetry, When Rains Come won a literary award.)
  • The Afrikaans books, Atonement and In Search of Truth (Self-Study Bible Course) are now printed. 
  • At Mission Fest in early September, we gained many new contacts and met others who have been listening to Derek’s radio programs. Those attending the conference were happy to download DVD foundational teaching to their mobile phones. We also met with some missionary organizations working in Africa.
  • On September 1, we celebrated 20 years of broadcasting on Impact Radio in Pretoria. We praise the Lord for the lives that have been changed as shared with us through many powerful testimonies from listeners.  

Tanzania—Isabel Surgeon

  • Another exciting opportunity we have is to broadcast over 130 CDs that have been translated into Swahili on the new Joy Radio station at Kigoma on Lake Tanganyika. The programs will be heard as far away as Burundi, Rwanda and across a large part of Tanzania. A missionary couple who have been working in Congo and Tanzania for the past 35 years, Lowell Wertz and his wife, saw the need to set up the station as most Tanzanians are avid radio listeners. They are only allowed to broadcast in English and Swahili and are delighted that we have Swahili CDs. We were also able to send 20 copies of Life-Changing Spiritual Power to add to their lending library and to give to pastors and other leaders.

United States—Dick Leggatt

  • The recording of the 168 Word from the Word audio devotionals in Spanish is finished and available on the Spanish website and App.

Zimbabwe—Tich Ruzane

  • I received this testimony:  I have been thinking about going to Bible school. I have been inspired by Derek. Now I need to know which school to go to. Where I can get to know about this awesome God?
