Prayer Focus 17/09/2023 - 23/09/2023
- Director René and Jacqueline travel to New Zealand on 23 September for DPM international meetings and return on 12 October. Pray for our small team, especially for Michaël and Catherine, to keep up with the work.
- We are in the process of buying the office building that we have rented for over 25 years. Pray for God’s abundant provision.
- Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance for DPM’s development here and a home/ministry base for our workers from Estonia who are moving here.
- Pray for good contact with local ministers and God’s favor upon our workers so they can serve the Spanish evangelical churches with Derek’s teaching.
- Pray that we will also be able to reach the many Russian-speaking people here through our online Bible School that is being developed.
- Our new Ukrainian website will soon be launched, enabling millions of refugees and the diaspora to receive spiritual food even far from their homes. Pray for God to use this tool to bless many and for new Ukrainian materials to be produced.
- Continue to pray for God’s protection for outreach director Vlad and his family and their co-workers in this time of war.
- Pray for peace in Belarus so that we can have more opportunities to spread Derek’s teaching material.
- The distribution of Bible teaching materials into prisons was recently forbidden by officials. Pray that the Lord would reverse this ruling so that we can meet the critical need to reach inmates with Derek’s teaching.
- Recently, we launched a new application process for our DPM Bible School. Pray that this will be useful and encouraging for new students.
- Pray for our outreach workers as they seek to build friendships with the Syrian people who have many hardships from the war, earthquakes, lack of food and more. Our workers desire to tell them about Christ and give them Derek’s Bible teaching.
- A medical outreach took place in July at a Syrian refugee camp on the Lebanon border. Outreach workers from our Egypt office also were there to minister and provide Derek’s Bible teaching. Pray that these refugees will come to know Christ and His love.
September 23—North Africa/Persian Gulf
- We are partnering with Vision Communications International (VCI), which will start three new radio broadcasts for North Africa, Sudan, and the Gulf. Pray for Derek’s teaching in the Sudanese dialect to impact the listeners, and for the Lord to remove any obstacles to this project.
