The majority of my students are from Sabah and Sarawak (East Malaysia) and are reading for their basic Bachelor of Education in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). Many of these trainees are Roman Catholics, but we meet every Friday for fellowship. The resources you donated have indeed blessed many, and those who received copies of the Foundations books have grown in their faith and now believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and can apply some spiritual truths expounded in Derek’s books/CDs. Thank you for helping us feed His lambs. May your giving encourage and enrich more souls into deepening their journey of faith in/with Christ, regardless of their denominations and ethnicities.

The second largest prison in Norway (in Bergen) is now being reached with Derek’s books and DVDs. Even the Lutheran priests are allowing materials to be received since many African inmates know of Derek and are asking for his books. This is good news!

 
Pakistan—James and Elizabeth

James was unexpectedly invited to speak at a leadership conference of over 300 participants after the initial speaker was unable to obtain a visa. Due to Derek’s Bible-based teaching, this was their best option. The theme was from the book, Rediscovering God’s Church. Leaders from all over Sindh Province attended and were inspired, encouraged and recharged to undertake service for God and His church with excellence. Many repented and were in tears as they rededicated themselves to the Lord’s service. Praise God for this great opportunity to impact this inter-denominational group.

God bless you for giving it free for the second-line leaders.

Slovakia—Branislav & Claudia Cekan
This year we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of involvement with DPM. We praise the Lord for opening the doors to minister to the Body of Christ here.

Your generosity is appreciated and will be rewarded by the Lord as you see the shining faces of many believers in heaven who made it because of your faithful, tireless and ongoing support.
 
Solomon Islands—Tele Bartlett

A family in the western part of the Solomon Islands struggled for years to be free of an ancestral curse that resulted in the loss of many lives.

They understand now the root cause of the curse and are working toward reconciliation among themselves and other tribes.
 
The Self-Study Bible Course has been completed by 28 more prison inmates, with many positive responses received. One testimony reads:
 
I have been really blessed as I studied these lessons, and the topics have led me into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and changed my attitudes and bad habits. Most of all, [the teaching] has given me hope that although I am a life-time prisoner, I am assured by my Savior that I will be saved in His Kingdom when He comes.

 
South Africa—Isabel Surgeon

We praise the Lord for our faithful donors and prayer supporters. Lynn has been responsible for donor care and has seen good response to her efforts. Without them, we would not be able to accomplish what the Lord wants to do for Africa through Derek’s teaching. So many leaders are looking for good teaching material and highly favor Derek’s teaching as the best for Africa.
 
We are making many contacts from the radio broadcasts on Impact Radio and Radio Pulpit. We are getting calls and e-mails from all around the country. Here is a message from Eddy:
 
I listened to the radio this morning and heard that the New Testament is an invitation to fellowship and walk with the Lord. Please send me reading material about today’s message and an audio of the message.
 
A group of eight and another group of 25 young leaders from N. Africa came to S. Africa to do discipleship training and then reach out to the Muslim communities. We were able to give them 14 books (PDF files on CDs), along with other CD and DVD teachings, and the information to DPM websites and other DPM Arabic material.
 
People who have known of Derek’s teaching in the past have been drawn back to it recently. A testimony came from a man in the Durban area who said he had a dream about Derek. Derek was in army attire and it was clear he had been in combat as he was covered with dust and dirt. He turned to this man and said, “Welcome back, my Prodigal son.” The man said he knew that what Derek meant was that he was to get back to Derek’s teaching. Years ago, he bought suitcases full of Derek’s audiocassettes which he gave to his daughters when they went to university. Now he wants to start ordering the messages again!
 
A high ranking army officer who was trained in Cuba under Communism gave the following report. He has had a church of about 150 in an Indian community in S. Africa for the past five years and has been grounded in Derek’s teaching. He is also a regular listener to Derek on radio. He was invited to minister in Zimbabwe and the meeting started at 9 a.m. He said he simply gave Derek’s message on deliverance and said that the Lord wanted to bless all who were there. He then prayed a simple prayer. He said: “It is amazing how Derek’s teaching is always with signs following.” People started getting delivered and the meeting went on until 7 p.m. that evening! One of the other high ranking army officers trained in Cuba now has five churches in the Johannesburg/Pretoria area.
