Dear praying friends,
GPA Indonesia has just wrapped up and GPA Benin has commenced. The effort to organize and run a national GPA is tremendous. Far more than a pastors conference, each event is intense and intentional in connecting, uniting and strengthening young pastors—and following up. We thank God for National GPA Coordinator Rajiv Richard and the Dallas GPA grads who are making them happen. Please pray for these coordinators, for each pastoral delegate, and for long-term effects on their churches and ministries. The National GPAs are a powerful aspect of our decade-long Global Proclamation Commission.
We also give thanks for RREACH’s dedicated Board of Directors, who have just finished meeting. Please ask the Lord for clarity, energy and efficiency as RREACH moves toward the GProCongress while maintaining the other areas of important ministry. Dr. Richard heads to London for the week for additional Congress vision-casting. He continues to seek the Lord’s provision for people to lead specific aspects of the project, especially in program.
For the 2015 Dallas GPA, we are now in dangerous territory. Only 22 pastors now have visas (12 have been denied US visas) and 21 flights have been purchased. Eight more pastors have visa appointments or need to make them. Pray that the Lord will bring the right 25 (or a couple more!) pastors. And especially, pray for their and the RREACH team’s physical, mental and spiritual preparation.
