Testimony - India

Brother S. J. Berchmann is a famous Tamil gospel songwriter, singer and preacher who also leads a network of churches. Some years ago, he requested Derek’s book, The Power of Proclamationin Tamil. Last month, India Directors, Elsie and Danny, met him and made an amazing discovery. Elsie shares:

  • I was telling him about the ministry we are doing through church and DPM, and it suddenly occurred to me that it would be good if he could write a song based on Derek’s proclamation about the Power of the Blood, and sing it. When I suggested it to him, he told me something that shocked me – he has written and published several hundred songs, based on every proclamation in the book! To think that people have been singing these songs in Tamil churches throughout Tamil Nadu and the world was amazing. It made me think that this is one more of the ways that God’s promise to Derek about ‘the mighty ocean’ is being fulfilled!

 

May 28—East Africa

  • Pray for Geoffrey and Pauline, based in Kenya, as they oversee DPM’s work in this region, including Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and Congo.
  • Pray for successful translations in progress and for more good contacts with pastors and others who would help share Derek’s teaching.
