Have you ever wondered how your giving to our Middle East outreach is unlocking the power of God’s Word into people’s lives?
Here is a story that will inspire and encourage you to keep giving and praying for people like Rev Andrawes and Magdi.* (whose name I have changed to protect his identity)
When Rev. Andrawes, a priest in the Coptic church in Egypt, read Life-Changing Spiritual Power, he was deeply impacted by Derek’s teaching on how things like Freemasonry and generational curses can affect someone’s life.
Little did he know then that God would lead him to minister to people who needed to hear such teaching. People like Magdi, whose family was experiencing severe problems. They were struggling financially, their home was broken into by thieves, and recently they had lost one of their daughters in a car accident.
And, just as they thought they had already hit rock bottom, Magdi was diagnosed with a type of gangrene that made doctors suggest that he should have one of his legs cut off.
Magdi’s faith journey: From Freemasonry to Jesus
Magdi’s wife, who was already a strong believer in Jesus, asked Rev. Andrawes to pray for him. As Rev. Andrawes started to pray for Magdi, God reminded him that Magdi’s father had been an important figure in a masonic group.
Rev. Andrawes turned again to Derek Prince’s teaching about Freemasonry and prayed with his wife that God would touch Magdi’s heart. Afterwards, he spoke to Magdi asking him to renounce all his ties with Freemasonry.
When Magdi heard about the destructive power of generational curses related to his father’s involvement in Freemasonry, he asked Rev. Andrawes to pray for him.
But this is not the end of Magdi’s story.
The next morning, Magdi fell on the ground and no one could explain why. His wife and daughter rushed him to the hospital and called Rev. Andrawes to help them.
Rev. Andrawes was struggling to understand what had happened. But, after having spoken to another pastor who helps people from masonic backgrounds, he decided to proclaim these words over Magdi: “These illness symptoms are lies from Satan. The curse is broken, and Satan has no power anymore! Because he is a son of the living Christ—he will not be taken. In the name of Jesus.”
Magdi stayed at the hospital for five days as doctors tried to determine what was wrong with him. During this time, Rev. Andrawes and Magdi’s family continued to pray and proclaim God’s truth over his life.
The good news is that God miraculously healed Magdi, including the gangrene in his leg!
Today Magdi is a changed man and a prayer warrior.
And, this is where you come into Magdi’s and Rev. Andrawes’ story. Our workers in Egypt were able to put Derek’s teaching into Rev. Andrawes and Magdi’s hands because of your past generosity towards our outreach in the Middle East.
And they need your help again.
If you are inspired by Rev. Andrawes’ and Magdi’s story, will you give £30 or more to our DPM Middle East outreach today?
By sending a gift today, you can make 2018 a year of spiritual freedom and joy for seekers and Christians in the Middle East.

Key DPM Middle East outreach projects for 2018
- Print and distribute key discipleship materials by Derek Prince like Life-Changing Spiritual Power, the Self Study Bible Course, and Foundations for Christian Living, to resource church leaders like Rev. Andrawes, and believers like Magdi.
- Launch a new outreach initiative for making Derek’s Bible teaching available in Tamazight, the language of the Berber people. Currently, there are more than 15 million Berber people living in North Africa and Europe.
Over two million of those are Christians who desperately need solid Bible teaching resources. The Tamazight language is part of the identity of the Berber people. We want to reach them in ways that are honouring to them by making radio and TV programs available in their language.
Cooperating with churches, ministries, and Christian TV and radio stations across the Middle East, we hope to unlock the power of God’s Word into people’s lives through Derek’s Tamazight materials.
A gift of £30 can enable us to print and distribute key discipleship materials by Derek Prince in Arabic.
A gift of £50 can help resource 20 persecuted Christian leaders in Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia by putting an SD card loaded with Bible teaching into their hands.
A gift of £100 can help to launch a new outreach initiative for making Derek’s Bible teaching available in Tamazight, the language of the Berber people.
