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 (http://ja.derekprince.jp/);
- 30 of Derek’s most significant messages, including the Laying the Foundation messages, voiced in Japanese, on the Japanese App (http://subsplash.com/derekprince/s/edb80e9/) 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.
