Derek Prince Middle East Outreach
Encourage seekers to find Jesus and help believers grow in their faith
As one of Derek Prince Ministries’ loyal friends, we want you to know how much we appreciate your support for our outreaches. That is why I am writing to you today. I want to share some good news stories made possible by your generosity and to invite you to send a gift to our Middle East outreach.
So let me tell you how you helped Ahmed*, a 32-year-old man from Tunisia. He contacted us via our DPM Arabic Facebook page saying that he wanted to know more about Christianity and worship a forgiving God, not a hateful God. One of our workers shared the gospel with Ahmed. After several conversations, he accepted Jesus as his Saviour and joined one of our online discipleship groups. Today, praise God, Ahmed is digging deeper into the Bible on his own using the Self-Study Bible Course materials.
Zeinab had suicidal thoughts
Let me tell you about the huge difference you made to Zeinab’s* life. She lives in Egypt and, until recently, she was struggling with self-esteem issues and a troubled marriage. Zeinab grew up suffering abuse from her mother and her older brother. She spent her youth doing housework and looking after her mother. Eventually, she got married to someone just to escape the difficult situation at home. But her husband mistreated her too and made her think that she had no value as a human being. Recently, both Zeinab and her father-in-law got Covid, and her husband just cared for his father, ignoring Zeinab’s situation.
She believed God had deserted her and she had suicidal thoughts. Thankfully, one day God directed her to Derek’s teachings online and she started to listen to the gospel’s message of forgiveness, love, and hope. At first, Zeinab found it hard to believe the gospel. But God touched her heart through conversations with our workers and their prayers. Our outreach workers shared the gospel with her and were very patient as she struggled to come to terms with the idea that God cares for her. Over time, Zeinab repented and invited Jesus into her heart. Now we are encouraging her to read the Bible, to see a Christian counsellor and to listen to more of Derek’s teaching in Arabic.
These and many other good news stories from our Middle East outreach would not have been possible without your partnership.
And right now, we need your help to provide thousands of believers and church leaders with Derek’s teaching on secure digital (SD) memory cards.
There is a huge need for Bible teaching resources in Jordan, Egypt, Algeria and elsewhere in the Middle East as more and more people seek to know more about the Bible. However, reading is not very common, especially amongst young people, working-class people, and migrants or refugees. So, books may not always be the most effective way to share valuable teaching on God’s love, gifts of the Holy Spirit, spiritual warfare, and prayer.
To respond to this challenge, we want to prepare SD cards loaded with different types of Derek’s Bible teaching, including video and audio sermons, as well as a copy of the Bible. Anyone can listen or watch the teaching using a smartphone, a computer, or other devices that can read SD cards. Each SD card costs about £5 and a bundle of 25 books by Derek Prince in Arabic costs about £17; this includes printing and shipping to various locations.
Will you give £17 or even £47 today to provide believers in the Middle East with the books and audio-visual resources they need to grow strong in their faith?
- By sending a gift today you can put SD cards with valuable Bible teaching in the hands of hundreds, even thousands, of young people who are hungry for God’s Word.
- You can help give comfort and hope to prisoners and refugees and their families, equipping them to draw strength and wisdom from God’s Word in these hard times.
- And you can help more Muslim-background believers like Ahmed and Zeinab to unlock the power of God’s Word in their lives.
Thank you for all you do to serve God and His people through our DPM outreaches.
