We are so excited to share the news that our *25th pastor received his visa today.
Pastor S from Tajikistan received his visa; please joining us in praising the Lord. Also, continue to pray for two additional pastors – Pastor I from Rwanda and Pastor P from Indonesia – as they apply for visas. The Lord willing, we could have 27 pastors (our goal is 25) in the 2014 class of the Dallas GPA!
Please also continue to pray for Pastor A from Syria. He has obtained his visa, but had to reapply for a passport and is not confident he will receive it. Also, we’ve heard from our delegates that they are running against some strange obstacles to their coming to Dallas, so please pray for perseverance.
Also, join us in praising God for this group of pastors, who have already delighted us with their excitement and encouragement of both RREACH staff and one another.
Finally, please pray for the following Dallas GPA logistical issues:
- For time, clarity of thought and creativity for Dr. Richard and the Master Coaches as they prepare their lessons for the Dallas GPA.
- For expanded capacity among the RREACH and GPA staff as they take care of each detail of the upcoming Dallas GPA.
- For excellent communication among staff and between staff and the 2014 Dallas GPA delegates.
- For no technology failures prior to or during the Dallas GPA.
- For the entire Dallas GPA budget to be raised by June 28, 2014. (Also, please continue to pray for the delegates who are raising half of their airfare to Dallas. Dr. Richard says that for some, this task is more difficult than our task of raising the entire GPA budget!)
