Dear praying friends,
Each day brings new matters for praise and prayer. Thank you for undertaking this vital ministry on Dr. Ramesh Richard’s and RREACH’s behalf. Here are a few items for your intercession this week:
- GPA Nicaragua graduated 25 fine young pastors last week! Many are fairly young in ministry and in faith. Praise God for their connecting, uniting and strengthening, and pray for continued growth in these areas.
- GPA Tanzania is set to begin this Thursday, March 19. National GPA Coordinator Rajiv Richard leaves for Africa tomorrow. Pray that this special set of men will connect, unite and be strengthened.
- 2015 Dallas GPA candidates from Nigeria and Cambodia have received visas! Four more pastors have visa appointments this week; some still need to make appointments. Timely visa applications help us obtain better airfares (and each pastor is responsible for one half of his airfare).
- The GProCongress Program Leader is one of Dr. Richard’s most pressing prayer requests. We would like to have this person in place by April 1. Please ask the Lord to provide.
- Dr. Richard has a busy week and two Sunday morning messages to deliver before he takes off next Monday, March 23, the Lord willing, for a jam-packed trip across Asia. He praises God for the medical help his daughter, Sitara, received while battling a serious infection last week, and is grateful for each who prayed and sent encouragement.
- Severe attacks on Christians in the Middle East continue. One 2015 Dallas GPA candidate from the region sent the following note on Sunday, 3/15: Please pray for the people whose relatives were killed and injured in suicide attacks on churches. My own house is very near one of the affected churches. I had gone for Sunday service and my wife was at home. She is traumatized and very shocked. Please pray for our family as well.
We appreciate your faith-full, persevering prayerfulness!
