August 30—LATIN AMERICA

Another group of local Hispanic pastors and ministry leaders visited the U.S. office recently as the result of an ongoing partnership with a prominent Hispanic minister in this area. Pray that, through these contacts with the Latino community, Derek’s material will be used not only by these leaders locally, but extended further into Latin America where they minister.

Pray for the ongoing successful translation and dubbing of Derek’s DVD teachings into Spanish.

Psalm 28:6–7


Belarus—Neil Cornick

  • In answer to your prayers, a pastor asked us to take part in a Sunday service and distribute Derek’s material. We joyfully responded and were able to bless many people.

China—Ross Paterson
