Over the years, thanks to the generosity of friends like you, we have distributed millions of copies of Derek’s books, and hundreds of thousands of DVDs and MP3s, cassettes, etc. Together, we have made a tremendous difference in this way.
Right now, we have some amazing, new opportunities to make Derek’s teaching available to Christians in China through the Internet and WeChat.
WeChat is a uniquely Chinese app that has been described by web developers and users as “a million apps within an app.” It’s like Facebook, Skype, Instagram, Twitter, Amazon, YouTube, PayPal and more—all combined in one app.
As our Chinese team would tell you, it is an excellent platform for discipling spiritually hungry Christians like Yuhui.
Yuhui, like millions of people in China today, is using WeChat for nearly everything in her daily life. She uses WeChat to shop online, to make hospital appointments, to pay bills, to book cinema tickets or holidays, to study the Bible and pray with others.
For 800 million Chinese people like Yuhui, WeChat is more than just an app—it is a lifestyle!
One of the mission objectives of our China Outreach in 2017 is to make Derek’s Bible teaching available to Christians like Yuhui. To meet them where they are at—in the digital world.
That is why last year we launched a special Chinese app, which contains Derek’s teaching for believers to use and share with others in their social networks.
In addition to this, we distributed 10,000 USB On the Go (OTG) devices containing 30 hours of Derek’s core Bible teaching, which can be viewed on mobile phones or computers.
More recently we began to upload Derek’s teaching in WeChat so we can disciple Chinese Christians through this strategic online platform.
We need mission-minded friends like you to help us grow this vital ministry of digital discipleship.
Will you help us disciple Christians in the digital world by donating to our DPM China Outreach today?
The potential of WeChat is unlimited. That is why one of our DPM China workers has created a public account in WeChat, and is posting extracts from Declaring God’s Word on a daily basis.
Another worker has done an audio version of Declaring God’s Word, leading with her own music and then reading Derek’s words in Chinese.
Every morning, a Christian sister hosts Quiet Time sessions on WeChat for 1,000 people who join her live. She posts Bible teaching by Derek Prince, invites group members to pray, and follows up with those who are asking questions.
What’s more, we are building two new websites—one for believers living inside China, and one for Chinese speaking people outside China—that will serve as discipleship hubs.
This will enable thousands of people to hear about Derek Prince via WeChat, to engage with his teaching and download free resources.
With your help, this year we can expand our digital ministry because we know that digital is one of the most effective ways for discipling more Christians in China.
Will you send a gift of $50 or more to our China Outreach to help us reach this mission goal?
Your help today is critical to the success of our digital discipleship ministry in 2017, so please take a few moments today to prayerfully consider your response.
Remember that your investment in our China Outreach wouldn’t just encourage WeChat users, it will also inspire them to share what they have learned with others.
It is on behalf of believers like Yuhui that I thank you for your generous support to our China Outreach.
With deep gratitude,
