May 7—China

  • China's 'parliament' met recently with the focus on extending the control of President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party over key elements of Chinese life. Pray for believers in China in this period of decreasing freedom.
  • The books, The Coming Revival, Applying the Blood, I Will Shake All Things and The Beast or The Lamb are now being translated and printed. Pray for God’s protection over our key workers in China as they print and distribute this important material for Chinese believers. 

May 8—Philippines

  • Continue to pray for the Lord to bring the right person to coordinate DPM’s work in the Philippines.
  • A conference was recently held in Sorsogon for about 100 pastors. Derek’s Tagalog books were freely distributed and eagerly received. Pray for these leaders to be impacted by Derek’s teaching and use it to equip others.

May 9—Cambodia

  •  Pray for God’s protection and wisdom for Director Mr. Huy, the two translators, Chhairith and Vicheat, and those using Derek’s teaching to train other pastors.  
  • We received permission to go into Sihanoukville Prison, led by pastor Veasna. Pray for the Lord’s protection and anointing as we proclaim the gospel and for the inmates to gain a firm biblical foundation through the Self-Study Bible Course.

Outreach Reports – Cambodia

  • A seminar was held for 36 pastors in Kampong Province. DPM–New Zealand Trustee, Alan Brooks, and his wife, Lynda, were on a mission trip to Cambodia and came to the seminar to teach from Derek’s material on Fatherhood and The Gifts of the Spirit. Derek’s books were also distributed.
  • In January, the 100th anniversary of Protestant Christianity in Cambodia was celebrated during the Cambodia Gospel Centennial Celebration in Phnom Penh. There were many activities with over 10,000 attendees gathering nightly. DPM also took part by giving away many books. Pastor Pot Pheap, a YWAM Bible School teacher in Battambang, brought hundreds of students who were excited to receive Derek’s books. Most of the students follow his teaching and share it. Some of the teachers will be using Spiritual Warfare in their curriculum. 

May 10—Indonesia
