Today, the responsibility for spiritual leadership in Cambodia falls on the shoulders of those mostly under the age of 40 due to the lost generation following Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge genocide in the 1970’s. This presents a real challenge for these young people, who need essential foundational training in the Word of God.
DPM-NZ Trustee Alan Brooks and wife Lynda, who recently visited Cambodia and spent two weeks teaching and ministering in several provinces with our National Director Huy and translator Sokkheng, told us:
“Time and time again the people responded with willing and open hearts and absorbed the teaching like dry sponges. Their notebooks were full of notes and they gave full participation at any interactive session. In Derek’s book What’s So Important About the Cross? he says, “When we present the message of the cross and of the Kingdom of God, it brings the supernatural confirmation of the Holy Spirit. When that confirmation comes, hearts are changed.” Alan says “That is what we experienced on the journey. What a joy and blessing to serve these amazing people.”
Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we have been able to:
- Train hundreds of Pastors and leaders at Bible training seminars in several provinces and freely distribute thousands of copies of Derek’s Bible teaching,
- Reach over 3,000 people through outreaches and distributing free copies of Derek’s booklet Do You Realise How Valuable You Are?
- Resource graduates from Bible Colleges and The Institute of Church Planting Cambodia with gift packs of Derek’s books and proclamation cards.
In December 2017 we are about to print 3,000 copies of Derek’s book What’s So Important About the Cross? in Khmer. We are also ready to print several more of Derek’s books in the Khmer language which these young Pastors and leaders need to help them to teach thousands of other believers. They include How to Pass from Curse to Blessing; Spiritual Warfare; Holy Spirit in You; Authority and Power of God’s Word; God’s Medicine Bottle and 10 others.
