In January, Pastor Luke (not his real name, for safety reasons) contacted the DPM team in Egypt. He is serving the Lord in upper Egypt and asked us to help him start Bible courses based on Derek Prince’ Foundations for Christian Living book. This book offers vital Biblical truths about the Christian faith: salvation; baptism, the Holy Spirit, laying on hands, the believers' resurrection and eternal judgment.
We supported him with all the materials he needed and on in the first week of February he started the first course with 25 young men and women. The response from the students was amazing and they are eager to complete the course.
Pastor Luke has started a second class for the same course in Egypt and Sudan and 35 new people joined.
Muslim background believers
In the near future Pastor Luke will train another group of 15 leaders who are serving Muslim background believers. Many of them are Syrian refugees. These leaders will share the teaching with their students and after they finish the course will take them to water baptism.
Please join us in prayer for Pastor Luke and his students, for them to develop an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and a firm foundation of faith. Your prayers and gifts are vital for our outreach in the Middle East.
