At this moment, thousands of young Christians in remote villages across India are struggling to break free from idol worship. They want to follow Jesus, but they don’t know how. And they are not alone. Many village pastors have little or no access to resources for discipling new believers.
At this moment, countless Christians in the Indian Subcontinent are living under the burden of curses pronounced upon them from unbelieving family members. Many of them cannot experience the fullness of life in Christ.
And, at this moment, Derek Prince Ministries supporters like you can do something about this situation. By making a gift of £15, £30, £60 or whatever you can share, you can help combat the spiritual hunger experienced by thousands of Christians in the Indian Subcontinent.
As you know, Derek Prince Ministries relies on the generosity of individuals and churches who support the translation, printing and distribution of Derek’s valuable Bible teaching in over 100 languages, including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Nepali, Urdu and Malayalam—some of the languages of the Indian Subcontinent.
In 2011, generous gifts from friends like you here in the UK and elsewhere enabled our workers to:
EQUIP over 10,000 Bible college graduates with a mini-library of Derek’s teaching in their language—an extremely valuable gift to them that pays huge dividends as they serve God in these tough mission fields.
TRAIN AND RESOURCE thousands of pastors who attended the Curse to Blessings seminars in India and other DPM one-day conferences in Pakistan and Nepal.
PROVIDE life-changing Bible teaching to tens of thousands of believers in remote areas by supplying free copies of the Self-Study Bible Course, The Holy Spirit in You, How to Pass from Curse to Blessing, etc.
Your generosity has brought release from curses to many.
Recently, a pastor from Lahore, Pakistan, wrote to us commenting on how a free copy of How to Pass from Curse to Blessing has strengthened his ministry. He said: “Two years ago I prayed for a poor man who used to sit at the back of our church. During the prayer, I sensed the curses on that man’s life. So I prayed with him the prayer contained in How to Pass from Curse to Blessing.
“After two years, I have the great joy of sharing with you that this man has been released from every curse and from a life of poverty. He now has a job, a home and motorbike, too. Praise God! I preach regularly from How to Pass from Curse to Blessing. I want everyone to experience God’s abundant blessings.”
Your generosity has brought fresh hope.
An Indian woman who recently lost her husband in a car accident told one of our workers that she had been really blessed by Derek’s book Life-Changing Spiritual Power. “Having read this book,” she said, “I have a better understanding of what Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross means for me and that in Him I have the power to overcome my circumstances, including the loss of my husband.”
Your generosity has opened pastors’ hearts to receive the Holy Spirit.
A few weeks ago, a Bible college graduate from Nepal wrote to us: “Thank you so much for the great books by Derek Prince. Thank you especially for Gifts of the Spirit—a truly wonderful gift for pastors like me who have not received teaching about the Holy Spirit before.”
Looking into the future . . .
We have developed some ambitious ministry plans for 2012 and beyond to equip churches to reach out to over 1.1 billion people living in this region.
Your generosity is vital to making these projects happen. So, please partner with us through your gifts and prayers as we seek to turn these plans into reality. Take a moment today to fill in the response form and send a gift to Derek Prince Ministries.
To give you a sense of what I mean, here are some examples of what we are working on right now:
In response to growing requests for Derek’s teaching, we want to raise £159,000 for printing 3,000 copies each of seven of Derek’s books in seven major Indian languages. They are: Blessing or Curse: You Can Choose; Called to Conquer; Declaring God’s Word; Empowered for Life; Foundations for Life; Gifts of the Spirit and They Shall Expel Demons. That’s 168,000 books that could impact hundreds of thousands of lives.
Also, we are hoping to provide 11,000 Bible college graduates from over 170 colleges with a mini-library of Derek’s books in their language.
Because persecution continues to be a major problem in this region, we are seeking to upload Derek’s audio messages onto secure digital cards (SD cards). These cards, preloaded with the audio teaching, can be placed in cell phones and can easily be read by computers, PDAs and MP3 players.
A generous gift of £30 will enable us to give out 30 copies of Derek’s books to spiritually hungry believers; a gift of £15 will provide a mini-library that a Bible-college graduate will treasure for life; while a gift of just £6 will ensure that a pastor or evangelist can have an SD card with valuable Bible teaching.
Many thanks for your continued support.
In Jesus’ mighty name,
Warren Smith, Regional Director
