Indonesia: saving a church from closing down
Over the past year, significant doors for the Gospel opened in Indonesia. Marcel, our Director of DPM–Indonesia, has been traveling throughout the nation, particularly to East Indonesia to minister to pastors and Christian leaders. Pastor Partogi, one of many who received Derek’s material, wrote:
“On behalf of the Pastors of the Siloam Evangelical Church, I would like to thank you for the books and CD’s from Derek Prince. These materials have been a real blessing to our ministry. Thank God, when the books were received by us at our recent Synod conference, it was like a breath of fresh air.”
Marcel reports how Derek’s book Life-Changing Spiritual Power is being used as a study book in one church, and how it has saved another church from closing down.
When I visited the city of Ponorogo, I was amazed with the fact that they are using Life-Changing Spiritual Power as a study book for the church. I heard testimonies like: “Thanks to Derek Prince's book, I am a changed person. I received the Holy Spirit and am on fire for God now!”
In another village, I was told by one of the leaders that they wanted to close the church down. After the pastor from Ponorogo introduced them to Derek’s book Life-Changing Spiritual Power, the Lord amazingly restored the church and brought a greater unity amongst them. They all told me to thank DPM for the blessing they received through a simple book.
Marcel has just returned from trips to Maluku Province, to an island off southern Western New Guinea (formerly Irian Jaya), and to Central Kalimantan (Borneo) where he held seminars based on How to Pass from Curse to Blessing. Many people there were set free from curses over their lives, and he has been asked to hold further seminars in both places for youth, pastors, and other church leaders.
Marcel will also be teaching and ministering in several other parts of Indonesia in the coming months and would love to bless hundreds more pastors, and other church leaders, with Derek’s material. Please pray for safe travels for Marcel in this Muslim nation.
Currently, funds for DPM–Indonesia’s work in 2018 are very low. Would you please consider making a special gift toward our work in Indonesia? Your generosity will enable Marcel to continue to equip leaders like Pastor Partogi with Derek’s life-changing Bible teaching.
