These milestones show that PRMI expanding its reach, getting the teaching out on Cooperation with the Holy Spirit, impacting lives, and doing what we can to equip the church in the power of the Holy Spirit to do what Christ commands.
Milestone #1: Release the first Spanish Mobile Drives in Nicaragua
We released the very first of the promised jump drives to leaders in Nicaragua at the Nicaragua Spiritual Warfare Dunamis in late October 2018.
We gave out 21 copies of Dunamis Project 1: Gateways to Empowerment
There was much celebration in Nicaragua, as they’ve been praying and giving for four years to make this a reality.
It was important to launch our first Mobile Dunamis Drives there.
Milestone #2: First release of Spanish Mobile Dunamis in the US
The Nicaragua Dunamis Track generously sent a copy with me to Grand Rapids, where our first Spanish language event in the US was held in October 2018.
It was their gift to Pastors Raul Fermin and his wife Doris Perez de Fermin of Lee Street Christian Reformed Church.
While there, an additional copy was given to a Peruvian couple that came over from Detroit. They are connecting with the new Dunamis Project Community up there.
Milestone #3: Release of Spanish Mobile Dunamis Project 1 and 2 to Young Life Leaders
In November 2018 we passed out 100 drives to leaders of Young Life from Mexico to Panama and the Dominican Republic.
These leaders have been familiar with Dunamis for many years, and even use many of our principles in their ministry.
Representative leaders from each of these 8 countries (plus the Dominican Republic) joined me in prayer that God would use these drives to equip Young Life Leaders to do Spirit Empowered Work in reaching youth for Christ.
When we delivered the jump drives, we heard stories of Dunamis Project impact in the lives of Young Life leaders from different countries: Guatemala, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic.
One leader shared his experience of how Dunamis came to Nicaragua with an initial visit by Brad Long that led to an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
One Young Life leader from Nicaragua had already received unit one and listened to the entire thing while driving. He told me of how this resource will help him guide his leaders on growing in the Holy Spirit.
A Young Life Leader from the Dominican Republic shared how learning how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit helped her disciple leaders in the ministry today.
Imagine the rapid multiplication of Dunamis teaching in Spanish throughout Central America as these leaders grab the vision to use this with their leaders in their country.
Imagine more Young Life Leaders discovering the empowering work of the Holy Spirit to do their kingdom work of sharing Jesus with every teenager.
Milestone #4: Release of 500 Spanish Language Discernment Test Bookmarks
At the same Young Life Camp, we released the first 500 copies of the bookmark that PRMI produces called the Four Discernment Tests.
Making the Dunamis Project available in other Languages
The Dunamis Project cannot stay only in English.
PRMI has a treasure in the Dunamis Project, and are working to make it available in other languages to helps pastors, leaders, and missionaries, equipping them to do their ministries as they work to see the Kingdom of God advanced. We are also translating Dunamis teaching into Russian, French, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese.
Your prayers and your giving play a vital role in that.
I’m so excited that I can’t really contain myself anymore.
Current Status of Spanish Mobile Dunamis
As of end of November 2018, here is the current phases of the Spanish Mobile Dunamis:
- Dunamis Project Units 1 and 2 are complete and in distribution.
- Development on Dunamis Institute branded jump drives as well as internet distribution.
- Manuals for 3, 4, and 5 remain in first draft status in Spanish, while number 6 and the Exousia manual are in the works.
What is needed for next phase:
We need to raise $50,000 to record and produce Units 3 and 4 in 2019.
We have an immediate need to finish the translation of the last two manuals of the Dunamis Project.
They run an average $7,000 each to make sure we have highly professional, international, and theologically accurate translations.
Please feel free to call me if you would like to arrange a way to give or donate online towards making this possible…
