Urgent requests from friends

Dear friends,

Thank you for partnering with us not only in praying for RREACH, but also in praying for others. We have two urgent requests from friends to share with you:

1. Dr. Richard recently received the prayer request (below) from Dr. Hormoz Shariat with Iran Alive Ministries. Please join us in praying for Amir and persecuted Christians around the world. Also, please share this post with others who will pray.

This week, we received a distressed call from one of our Church 7 members who lives in Iran. Her 32-year-old son, Amir*, has been in prison for the past two years after being caught with a truckload of Bibles.

Recently, an execution date was set for the week of August 11th for his crimes against Islam and government.  

Understandably, she is very upset. Her only request is for prayers of deliverance for her son.


  • Pray for Amir and his family. Pray for deliverance from this death sentence for Amir and for his frightened and grieving family.
  • Pray for his jailers, his judge and his fellow inmates to encounter the love of Christ and receive Him as their personal Savior.
  • Pray for the countless other brothers and sisters, like Amir, who are suffering persecution for their faith in Christ in Iran and around the world right now.

*Pseudonym used to protect identity. 

2. Dallas GPA 2014 grad Pastor A from Nepal recently sent this request:

A big river that flows throughout my district which comes all the way down from Tibet, China was blocked due to a huge landslide that came from both sides of the river. There are many smaller towns throughout the river bank that are affected. Now the river water level is growing and going upward, and people in the affected areas are being evacuated. 


Praying that our God, under his sovereignty will take care of things. Many houses are wiped out and hundreds are missing, it is known that a believer’s family was also victim of the landslide. I will appreciate your prayers.

Here and here are news updates on the situation. Please continue to pray.

For His glory,
Edie Ross
Prayer Coordinator

  1. Hi, the two prayer topics are a heartbreaking ones. We need to pray and the Lord who has an answer to everything happening to us will help us out. In last uly, we distributed 200 Bibles in an islamic country. In our case there are churches in Daka, so we worked through them and it goes on very well. Once more thank you for your concern.
