Belarus - Testimony
Martha faced difficulties and questions in spiritual warfare, yet with no teaching she was depressed and defeated. We told her about Derek’s books, Spiritual Warfare and They Shall Expel Demons, and also had her listen to his sermons on this topic. We prayed and stood with her, and the Lord answered, and results became visible. Her physical state and circumstances have changed, and now her spiritual life is much better. She can continue to use this experience in her life and in the lives of people around her.
