Dear Praying Friends,
- Praise God! Twenty-four Dallas GPA pastors have arrived; we expect the final two today.
- Pray for each pastor to acclimate well and for a great first week.
- Remember Dr. Richard as he prepares to teach at the GPA amid other demands on his time and attention.
- Praise God for ongoing efforts to connect and strengthen trainers of pastors globally.
The bigger picture:
The Dallas Global Proclamation Academy, RREACH’s premier annual pastoral training event, officially begins Sunday, June 10. Pray for the 26 delegates from 26 different countries to acclimate well to their new surroundings. Pray for patience, understanding and good humor as they learn and adjust to each other’s cultural perspectives, nuances and accents. Pray that they will bond with each other in the Lord Jesus for lifelong friendships and ministry relationships.
Pray also that the pastors will dedicate this time to God and His will for their lives. Each was asked to come with a specific growth goal. Pray that He will accomplish this and far, far more in them. Pray that they will become better proclaimers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Richard is to teach Monday, the first day in the classroom. Please pray that his allergy-compromised voice will hold up. Praise God for the additional time he had for ministry planning after last week’s board of directors meeting and ask for His unceasing direction. Continue to pray for Dr. Richard’s banquet message preparation.
Uphold GProCommission colleagues helping connect and strengthen pastoral trainers in Latin America, Africa, South Asia, Central Europe, the Middle East and North America/Western Europe. We’re still seeking a colleague for Central Asia. Please pray for that need and for the colleagues in other regions considering how they can help in the meantime.
Thank you for praying!
