Dear praying friends,
Dr. Ramesh Richard and RREACH are seeking ministry partners available and willing to give special, focused, concentrated prayer covering to the 2017 Dallas GPA. Would you consider committing to pray for this effort? For those willing to serve in this capacity, we are asking for the following commitment:
- Pray regularly for delegates. We will send a schedule of visa appointments and updated needs and praises periodically.
- In May, we will begin sending updates once a week, and during the GPA, three times a week.
Some Dallas GPA needs will be posted on this blog, but more in-depth information will be sent directly to those who sign up to be part of the GPA Prayer Commission. Here’s part of the most recent Dallas GPA prayer email:
- We have 30 candidates, sixteen of whom have visas. We have someone working with the pastors this year on their visa interviews, since many pastors were denied in 2015 and had to reapply. Unfortunately, the global climate of 2017 is difficult, and we are still experiencing difficulty.
- Pray for communication with the pastors. We have a few pastors we have not been able to contact in a couple of weeks, by either email or phone. Communication is key in helping them obtain their visas, purchase flights, etc. Please pray for communication barriers to be broken. Pray that the pastors will schedule their appointments ASAP and that we will hear from them soon.
- Pray for the pastors as they need to raise half of their airfare. Many struggle, since half of the airfare may represent several months’ wages.
One of the greatest needs right now is for pastors to find favor as they apply for visas. (To pray specifically over each pastor applying, please sign up to receive the emails.)
We are in desperate need of faithful, available and willing partners like you to pray for the 2017 Dallas GPA. If you would like to serve in this important way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
