It has been said that Japan is the hardest country to reach with Christian material and so it was with great delight when, three years ago, we at DPM-NZ were put in touch with a Japanese translator, Yvonne (name changed for security reasons), who lives in Osaka (south-east Japan).  Since then, Yvonne and a volunteer translator, have been very busy translating Derek’s material and we now have the following Japanese Bible teaching resources available on our DPM-Japan dual-language website and App:

  • 63 Teaching Letters on the DPM-Japan dual-language website (;
  • 30 of Derek’s most significant messages, including the Laying the Foundation messages, voiced in Japanese, on the Japanese App ( and website, along with a free Study Guide.
  • 168 two-minute messages in Japanese entitled A Word from the Word on the DPM-Japan website.
  • Nine Japanese-language books available for free download from the DPM-Japan website.

If you know any Japanese-speaking believers, please do “spread the word” about our DPM-Japan website and App!

Where to From Here?

  • Placing Derek’s teaching material on other media such as SD cards.  
  • Translating the DPM-Japan English-language Facebook page into Japanese (20% of Japanese people are on Facebook, totalling 25 million active users). 
  • Voicing the Japanese Teaching Letters for placing on the website. 
  • Translate more of Derek’s books.

We have only just begun to reach the Japanese people with Derek’s teaching – and we are believing for many opportunities to greatly expand our ministry in this spiritually dry and thirsty nation.
