Myanmar (formerly Burma) Overview

Since 1999 we have been organising the translation, printing and distribution of Derek’s books in Burmese, the majority language of this country. 35 of Derek’s books have now been translated and printed, with over 300,000 Burmese books published to date. A number of Pastors now use the teaching in Derek’s books as the basis for their Sunday sermons. Most Pastors and leaders in Myanmar are very poor and would not normally be able to afford to buy books, so these free books have been a great blessing to them. One Pastor from a remote area said that Derek’s books are like an ‘Oasis in the Desert’. We are greatly excited and encouraged to see the hunger many have to read Derek’s books regardless of denomination and we have regular customers from all Christian denominations.

The Graduate Gift Pack Programme was introduced in 2005 and is a great blessing to the graduates who have no other resources. There are 150 Bible Schools in Yangon, with a total of 200 in the nation.

Our Director is often asked to speak and preach in many different areas of Myanmar, and this has helped promote the work of DPM in this nation. Recently, our Director preached to 500 Pastors over three days at the 50th anniversary of Tamu Baptist Church at Tamu, Sagaing Division (North West Myanmar). Many lives were renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit. This was a wonderful opportunity to introduce Derek’s teaching to these 500 Pastors in this challenging nation and key Pastors also received complimentary copies of Derek’s books. Our Director also trains around 60 students in the DPM building using Derek’s teaching.
