An ending that is really a beginning

Dear praying friends,

The three intense weeks of the 2017 Dallas GPA are drawing to a close. Today, Dr. Richard taught the final Master Coach sessions and joined the pastors in a special wrap-up time of sharing and prayer. Tomorrow, the Lord willing, many RREACH friends will gather for the GPA graduation dinner, a time of celebration and commissioning.

Please pray for these final hours in Dallas to be rich for our 29 fine young pastoral leaders. As Dr.  Richard says, the real GPA work begins as these men go back to the demands and stresses of ministry in their 29 different countries. Pray that the connecting, uniting and strengthening they experienced here will multiply into greater proclamation of the Lord Jesus Christ.

2017 GPA delegates: Connecting, uniting, strengthening

Intercede for Dr. Richard as he finalizes and delivers his graduation talk.

The RREACH and GPA staff also appreciate prayer as we strive to create a first-class experience for the pastors down to the final details, and to honor the Lord Jesus Christ in how we speak and serve amid all the responsibilities and demands. Much is yet to be done to host the banquet and to get the pastors safely on their way home (pray for safe travels, too!)

GPA Honduras has its graduation this weekend, as well. Pray for the Lord’s rich blessing on that special event and on the pastors as they go forward better connected, united and strengthened to serve.

Thank you, friends, for caring and praying.
